Step 1: Cut and Melt Your Opaque Soaps!
First we need to melt down the soap.
Just throw them into a paper cup and microwave for about 1 min!
Step 2: Colour Your Soaps
Add the colouring TIP: You want a small amount of a bunch of different colours to blend later. 30 seconds in a microwave should be plenty to get the soap to the right consistency.
BONUS - To add smell, add a few drops of your favourite essential oil!
Step 3: Freeze the Soap!
Let the solid colour layers set in the freezer. Give them about 15 mins to properly cool before taking them out!
Step 4: Make Shards
When they’re done you’re going to start building your layers and blending together the colours. Cut your colours into small shards.
Step 5: Melt the Clear Soap Base
Use the microwave and check every 15 seconds! (Soap explodes in the microwave).
Step 6: Mix Your Soaps!
Place your shards in the clear liquid as quickly as possible and cool in the freezer for 15 mins.
Shave off the rounded edges of the soaps to make the geometric shapes!
Step 8: Enjoy!
And voila! Your soaps are finished!
