- Weigh and cut up 2 oz. of clear soap. Place in glass measuring cup. If you do not have a scale, take 1/4 of 2 lb. tray which is 8 oz. Cut that square into 4 pieces and 1 piece would be approx. 2 oz.
- Melt soap in microwave for about 15 seconds. Remove and stir soap. Heat for additional 10 seconds if not completely melted.
- Add 1/2 teaspoon of gold mica powder to melted soap. Mix well.
