- NOTE: If you are making these products for sale, good manufacturing practices recommend you wear a hairnet, gloves and a mask. We also recommend a clean apron.
- Remove soap from both of the plastic trays. Cut soap into small chunks and place in a large (64 oz. or larger) mixing bowl.
- Place silicone mold on a large cookie sheet. This will add stability should the mold need to be moved.
- Place bowl in microwave and heat soap until it has completely melted. Heat for about 3 minutes, remove and stir. Continue to heat in 1 minute intervals until soap has completely melted.
- Add 1 oz. of Rockin Raspberry fragrance oil and stir well. Pour into silicone tray mold. Spritz top of soap with alcohol to release any surface bubbles.
- Allow soap to completely set up. This may take a full day before soap has completely hardened.
- Once set up, turn soap over and gently press on mold to release soap. Turn large soap over to see the score lines on the soap.
- Gather enough small glass bowls for the number of colors being used to paint with.
- Cut each color block into 4 pieces. Place one piece of each color into each of the bowls. Add 1/4 teaspoon of glycerin to each bowl.
- Place each bowl in microwave and heat for 5 seconds. If color has not completely melted, heat for another 3-4 seconds.
- These colors will harden fairly quickly once melted. They can be reheated a few times, adding a little more glycerin if needed. Be sure to only heat for a few seconds.
- Using a child's paint brush, let them paint on the soap. They can make one big picture or they can paint something on each of the 12 soap bars.
- If they make a big picture, once the soap is cut into bars, they can put the pieces back together like a puzzle.
- When using the soap, if there is a large amount of color, you may want to wash some of the color off before using. Too much color may come off on washcloths or color the skin.
