Recipe Directions

  1. 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.
  2. To make soap embeds: Choose 6 non-bleeding bright colors to mix with your clear Swirl & Marble MP soap. (We used 5 Crafter's Choice Neon Powders and the Crafter's Choice Woodland Green Pigment Powder.)
  3. If using powdered dyes, first mix about 1/4 teaspoon of the powder with 1 oz. liquid glycerin. This will help the colors mix better and prevent speckling in your soap.
  4. Cut and weigh 16 oz. of clear soap base and place in glass measuring cup. Melt soap in microwave, then mix in the first color. Repeat this until all 6 colors have been blended with clear soap.
  5. Line up your cups of colored soap to make it easier once you start pouring the soap.
  6. Place the silicone mold on a large cookie sheet for ease in moving the mold once it is filled.
  7. Using a large funnel, hold it about 6-8" above the mold. Take your first color and pour through the funnel onto the mold. Pour about 1/4 of the color.
  8. Then, take the second color, pour right over the first color. Continue rotating the colors, moving the funnel around to create swirls in different areas.
  9. Continue in this manner until all your soap has been used. Let set until the soap has completely hardened. HINT: To speed up this process, place cookie sheet in freezer for about 30 minutes.
  10. Once soap has hardened, remove from mold. Using soap slicer, cut into small chunks. They do not have to all be the same size. That's what makes this soap fun and each loaf unique.
  11. Weigh 40 ounces of ultra white soap base. Cut into chunks and place in large glass pyrex bowl. Place in microwave and heat until melted. DO NOT BOIL. Remove from microwave and stir.
  12. If adding fragrance, now add 3% fragrance oil or 1.2 oz. for the 40 oz. of soap.
  13. With digital thermometer, check temperature of soap. Your soap should not be over 125 degrees or the soap will melt the embeds. When soap reaches 125 degrees, pour a thin layer into the bottom of the loaf mold.
  14. Take a handful of embeds, spritz generously with alcohol and toss into the mold. Then, pour more white soap over those embeds.
  15. Take another handful of chunks, spray with alcohol and toss into mold. Be generous - the more chunks, the better your soap will look.
  16. Continue in this manner until you fill the entire mold. Try to leave some embeds sticking out the top of the loaf. If you like, sprinkle some Super Sparkle Irridescent Glitter on the top to make the soap shimmer.
  17. Once soap has completely set up, remove from mold. Place in mitre box and slice. Wrap and label accordingly.
