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. Assemble your supplies. If you wish to make angled layers, place mold in a shoe box and tilt the bottom with a wedge to create an angle.
  3. In a plastic beaker, mix 1/8 teaspoon of powder color with 1 oz. glycerin. Mix well with metal whisk. If particles not dissolving completely, pour mixture through fine strainer, coffee filter or fine cheese cloth.
  4. Repeat step 1 with each of the different colors.
  5. Cut up soap into 1" chunks and weigh out 10 oz. Place in a pyrex cup and heat it in the microwave for 60 seconds on high. You may repeat heating in 15 second increments until soap is fully melted.
  6. Add your yellow liquid color and mix well.
  7. Add 5 ml of fragrance (Island Nectar). Pour into the silicone mold. This will be your first layer. Allow it to harden before proceeding.
  8. Once first layer is hard (set up), repeat steps 4-6 with a new color.
  9. The second color of soap must cool to 125-130ºF before it is ready to pour. This will ensure the previous layer of soap does not melt.
  10. When the soap has cooled to the 125-130º F, spritz the hard soap in loaf with a fine mist of rubbing alcohol. This rubbing alcohol will force the layers of soap to stick together.
  11. Using the remaining colors, follow these previous steps for the third and fourth layers of soap. Be sure to spritz each layer of soap generously with rubbing alcohol.
  12. When the loaf of soap is completely set up, carefully remove it from the mold. Slice the loaf into bars using the Crafter's Choice Mitre Box. Wrap and label accordingly.
  13. Picture of bright colored soap in front is made with extra clear base. Soap on either side is made with white base (shea) to get a pastel look.
