Instructions

  1. Follow the melting instructions for basic pour and melt soap to melt your soap base.
  2. Pour a small amount of soap base into a seperate dish. This will the the soap you use for detailing. Add soap dye to the dish of melted soap (unless you want your details to be white.) Stir throughly until fully disolved. Continue to stir until the soap begins to get thick.
  3. Use your pipette to transfer the detailing soap into the detailed crevices of the soap mold. If you get any bubbles in the soap use your toothpick to pop them.
  4. Allow the soap in the mold to cool fully.
  5. Heat the soap that you will be using for your fill color and the main part of the soap. Add soap dye to the dish of melted soap (unless this part of your soap will be white.) Stir throughly until fully disolved. Continue to stir until the soap begins to get thick. If you pour the soap into the mold when it's too hot, the colors of your details may run so be sure to wait until the soap gets quite thick.
  6. Spray the soap details in the mold with a good layer of rubbing alcohol. The alcohol will act like glue so that the layers of the soap stick together well.
  7. Pour the main soap into the mold until it's filled.
  8. Allow the soap to cool fully. You can place the mold in the fridge or freezer for a short time to speed up the cooling process. Remove the soap from the mold by pressing on the back of the mold and your soap is finished.
