- In deep plastic disposable cup, mix 1 oz. glycerin with 1/4 teaspoon of Matte Woodland Green Pigment Powder.
- Using a mini-mixer or frother, mix until powder is completely blended in.
- Weigh 1 oz. of soap and place in glass bowl.
- Place glass container in microwave and heat until soap is completely melted.
- Add green color to melted soap until desired shade is achieved.
- Using a plastic dropper, fill in details of celtic design with the green soap. If bubbles appear while filling, spritz lightly with alcohol.
- To prevent soap from hardening in dropper, place in cup of warm water when dropper is not in use. Be sure any soap is squeezed out before doing this.
- Continue until all clamshells are done. If soap starts to harden, heat in microwave for about 5-8 seconds. Let soap harden in clamshells.
- Weigh out 56 oz. of soap. This would be one 2 lb tray plus 3-8oz squares from second tray. Cut into small chunks and place in glass measuring cup.
- Place in microwave and heat until all soap is melted.
- To melted soap, add 1.5 oz. of Green Aloe & Clover fragrance oil. Mix well.
- Let soap cool down to about 125 degrees. If you do not have a candy or digital thermometer, let a skin form on top of the soap. Stir into the soap, you do not have to throw it away. Let a second skin form, stir in again and your soap should now be cool enough to pour.
- Spritz green soap in each cavity generously with alcohol. This will ensure the second pour (white soap) sticks to the first pour.
- Carefully pour soap into each cavity. Do not overpour or the back lid will not fit when it is placed on the clamshell.
- Allow soaps to completely harden before placing backing on.
- Label soap accordingly.
