  • Step one: Melt down the wax and add som shavings of the Blue dye block
  • Adding the Vetyver Fragrance to the melted wax
  • Use 2 pencils to keep the wick centered while the wax cools.

ONE: Cut Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base into 1 inch chunks and melt in a heat safe container on 30 second bursts in the microwave until fully melted.

TWO: Add 2 heaping mini-scoops of Super Pearly White Mica to the melted soap base and mix well. Use Isopropyl (Rubbing) Alcohol to disperse any mica bubbles that may pop up.

THREE: Add 0.8 oz Plumeria Fragrance Oil and stir until incorporated. Split the soap base into two equal parts, each weighing 20 ounces.

FOUR: To one 20 ounce portion, add 3 mL Diluted Tropical Pink LabColor and mix well. To the second 20 ounce portion, add 5 mL Diluted Tropical Orange LabColor and mix well.

FIVE: For a super even look, I measured out the soap amounts for each layer. If you’d like a more uniform look, split the Orange and Pink colored soap bases into two portions, each weighing 10 ounces. For a more organic look, no need to split the batches, just eyeball the layers.

SIX: Pour the first layer of Pink soap base into the mold, spray with alcohol and allow to harden.

SEVEN: While the layers are hardening, cut the White Melt and Pour Soap Base into 1 inch chunks and melt in a heat safe container on 30 second bursts in the microwave until fully melted. Add 2 heaping mini-scoops of Super Pearly White Mica and 0.3 oz Plumeria Fragrance Oil and mix well.

EIGHT: Spray the first pink layer with alcohol and pour the next orange layer. Spray again with alcohol and allow to fully harden.

NINE: Spray the orange layer with alcohol and pour the melted white soap base. Spray again with alcohol and allow to harden. Repeat with another orange layer next, and finish it off with a final pink layer.

TEN: Allow to harden for a few hours (mine sat overnight) then unmold, cut and enjoy! TIP: This soap looks AWESOME when cut with the Bramble Berry Crinkle Cutter.
