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. Using the 4 plastic beakers, mix all colors, except gold mica, with 1 oz. of glycerin. Mix powder into liquid by hand, then use mini-mixer to mix thoroughly.
  3. In 5 small glass containers, melt 2 oz. of clear soap in each.
  4. Add color mixture to each container of melted soap. The gold mica can be added directly into the melted soap.
  5. Pour colored soap into the cavities of the Sea Life Deco-It Silicone Mold. Make the embeds whatever color you choose. Plastic droppers can be used for small areas.
  6. Once soap has set up, remove embeds from molds. Continue making enough embeds for 6 bars of soap.
  7. Weigh 30 oz. of oatmeal soap base. Cut into small chunks and place in large glass measuring cup.
  8. Heat in microwave until all soap has melted. Remove from microwave and stir.
  9. Place square silicone mold on jelly roll pan. This gives stability to the mold should it need to be moved.
  10. Pour the oatmeal soap into the 6 cavities filling each about 3/4 high.
  11. Spritz the top of the oatmeal soap with alcohol to dissolve any surface bubbles.
  12. Let soap harden.
  13. To get 3-D affect the embeds are done in layers so they appear more separate.
  14. Weigh 8 oz. of clear soap base and place in glass measuring cup. Heat until melted. Remove from microwave and stir.
  15. Spritz top of first cavity of soap with alcohol. Check temperature of soap so it is no hotter than 125 degrees. Pour a thin layer of clear soap just enough to coat top of bar.
  16. Quickly take first layer of embeds, spritz with alcohol and place into melted clear soap.
  17. Spritz again with alcohol.
  18. Continue with remaining 5 bars until first layer of embeds are finished.
  19. More clear soap will need to be melted as you go along.
  20. Once this layer of soap has hardened, spritz again with alcohol.
  21. Pour another thin layer of clear soap over embeds. Spritz second set of embeds and immediately place into clear soap. Spritz again.
  22. For top embeds, they can be completely covered or one embed can stick out slightly from bar, finishing off the 3-D affect.
  23. When pouring clear soap over top embeds, pour just enough to cover. If soap is poured too thick, embeds will be cloudy.
  24. Finish top with final spritz of alcohol.
  25. Once soap has hardened, carefully remove from mold and wrap immediately. To give soap a more finished appearance, bevel the top edges with a potato peeler.
