Princess Soaps

Step 1: Cut up approximately 3 ounces of White Melt & Pour soap base into small cubes using a sharp knife.

Step 2: Using a microwave safe container, heat in the microwave in 15-second bursts until melted. Do not burn or boil, this will result in a poor quality rubbery soap. If there are any small chunks of soap left, stir slowly; the heat of the soap will melt these small chunks.

TIP: Melt a little extra to take into account that some of the soap will stick to the container.

Step 3: Add 1 drop of Magenta Gel Soap Colorant to the melted soap base and stir slowly.

Step 4: Using a disposable pipette, add 1.5 ml of Bubble Gum Fragrance Oil and stir in slowly.

Step 7: When the first layer is set, spritz each cavity with alcohol and pour this second layer 1/3rd of the way up each cavity.

TIP: When layering, don’t pour the layers too hot because they will melt together. If unsure of the temperature, use a thermometer. The soap should be approximately 135 degrees.

Step 8: While the second layer is setting, repeat steps 1 through 4 using 3 ounces of Ultra Clear melt and pour soap base. Add 3 scoops of Shimmer Dust Glitter in Diamond Dust. Stir slowly to incorporate the glitter throughout the soap. Don’t forget to add the fragrance oil!

Step 9: Continue to stir the soap slowly – it should be slightly cool to prevent the glitter from settling to the bottom.

Step 10: When the second layer is set, spritz with alcohol and pour this third layer the rest of the way up each cavity.
