Directions:
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 and workspace.
  1. To a plastic beaker, add 0.50 oz. of Crystal Clear soap base. 
  2. In another beaker, add 1/2 teaspoon of glycerin and one 0.15 ml scoop of Matte Woodland Green Pigment Powder. Mix the glycerin and green powder well. We recommend using a mini mixer, but a spoon works as well.
  3. Melt the crystal clear soap in 5-second increments until completely melted.
  4. Add the green color mixture to the melted soap, and mix well. Spritz the inside of each mold cavity with rubbing alcohol. Using a plastic dropper, carefully pipe the green melted soap into the "land" grooves on the mold.
  5. Into a clean beaker, add 1.5 oz. of Crystal Clear soap base.
  6. In another small beaker, add 1/2 teaspoon of glycerin and one 0.15 ml scoop of Matte Cobalt Blue Ultramarine Powder. Using a mini-mixer, blend until powder is well mixed in.
  7. Melt the crystal clear soap in 5-second increments until completely melted.
  8. Add the blue color mixture to the melted soap, and mix well.
  9. When the temperature of the soap has cooled to below 130ºF, spritz the hardened green soap in the mold with rubbing alcohol.
  10. Carefully pour the blue soap to fill the "world" in each mold cavity. Be sure to stop before you reach the flat part of the mold as this will be filled with another color.
  11. To a microwave-safe measuring cup, add 13 oz. of Ultra White soap base. Heat in microwave in 30-second increments until completely melted.
  12. Add 12 ml of Mother Earth-Certified 100% Natural fragrance oil to the melted soap. Mix well to incorporate the fragrance.
  13. When the soap has cooled to below 130ºF, spritz the hardened blue soap generously with rubbing alcohol.
  14. Fill each mold cavity to the top with the melted white soap. Spritz with rubbing alcohol to pop any bubbles. Let soap harden.
  15. Unmold soaps and set on a flat surface. 
  16. Using a child's paintbrush, lightly brush gold mica powder along the rim of each soap bar. If desired, lightly spray mica area with aerosol hairspray to set the mica in place.    
  17. Wrap each bar of soap in plastic wrap to prevent glycerin dew from forming.
  18. Label the product accordingly.
To Use: Lather onto wet skin and rinse with warm water.
