Picture of Dirty Soap
Everyone can use a bar of soap as a present so why not make your own bars extra special with some nudity? Spread the love!

Step 1: Find images and print them onto decal paper.

Picture of Find images and print them onto decal paper.
The images you will have to find on your own, but as for the decal paper, you just get some from here. A ten-pack of the white should be good enough for about 80 bars of soap.

Get some bars of soap that have a flat face and measure to see what your work area is. Resize and crop your image to fit.

When you get the transfer paper, just put in in your inkjet printer and print it out.

Step 2: Spray some clear coat

Apply 2-3 coats of some acrylic clear coat from a spray can and wait 60-90 minutes for it to dry.

Step 3: Trim to size

Cut out the picture. If you're feeling lucky, try to round the corners.

Step 4: Dunk in water

Drop the decal into a glass of water for about 45 seconds. The backing will become loose and the decal will come off easily.

Step 5: Apply decal to soap

If you're in a rush and have steady hands you can apply the decal onto a dry bar of soap.

If you want to be able to have some leeway and be able to reposition the decal, wet the soap a little bit first.

Apply the decal onto the soap and press out the air bubbles.

Step 6: Give the gift of love and happiness

Tie it up with a bow, wrap it in some fancy paper, or simply toss it to your roommate and shout "merry freakin' holidays!"

Customize the images to your friends if you want or just mix them up and when your friends call to thank you you can try to figure out which one they got.

Here's to closing out the year with class and style.

I guess you can apply a photo (printed on normal paper) to a soap (or whatever) by just using white glue (and a brush to apply the glue below and above the paper). This is called decoupage. Unfortunately, I don't know the details about how to do it. Might be an interesting alternative, with even cheaper material. Come on! Someone please do it and post here at instructables! :)
the problem with using normal paper and glue is two-fold: 1) white glue dissolves in water and all of a sudden you are "cleaning" yourself with glue 2) paper also dissolves in water and you would have little flecks of your picture all over you. If you want to decoupage, buy a container of ModgePodge and a brush at your local craft store and go crazy! it's fun, easy, cheap, and there are instructions on the bottle.
You're right... And now I remember that varnish was applied on top of the glue+paper combination. The varnish makes it waterproof.

How about this In an old prank shop here in Kansas they sold a soap that was the same but when you got to the pic it was a plastic keeper and there where 6 cards in one bar of soap just layered the soap and cards then you can keep your newly found pics and be clean at the same time the shop closed about 7 years ago but it was fun going in there.

Ma Gnome - Well befor ya done getting em parts, ya make sure ya close th curtains. Neighbors ben complainin bout ya internet shoppin.

So what happens when you try to use the soap? Does the decal just come off or would you get your hands dirty as the ink starts rubbing off?
i had a bar that as you used it the girls clothes started to come off. lets see that

I like how your angles avoided the nudity. :) I wouldn't give these to my grandma, but I could probably put a picture of a cat or something. It's a great gift for a girlfriend/boyfriend. Put your face on it and he/she would be rubbing your face... Nevermind.
