ONE: Cut the White Melt and Pour into evenly sized 1 inch chunks. Melt 1 ounce of the melt and pour base on 5-10 second bursts. It won’t take very long to melt such a tiny amount of soap!
TWO: Using the Soap Injector Tool, fill in the piping of the Onesies with white soap. Keep a cup of warm water handy for the Soap Injector Tool to rest in while not in use.
THREE: While the filled piping is hardening, heat the rest of the White Melt and Pour on 30 second bursts in the microwave until fully melted. Add 10 mL of Baby Powder Fragrance Oil and mix well.
FOUR: Split the soap in half, about 9 oz each. Color one of the split batches with the Green Color Block and the other with the Fizzy Lemonade Color Block. Using the color blocks in melt and pour is quick and easy! I like to use my clean up tool to shave off little bits of the color block into the soap and stir until the desired color is achieved. What you see is what you get (WYSIWYG) with color blocks. In this case, because I used a white soap base, the color will always be pastel. For a brighter color, use a clear soap base for this recipe.
FIVE: Spray the cavities with Isopropyl (Rubbing) Alcohol so the layers adhere well. With the green soap in one hand and the yellow in the other, pour from opposite sides of the mold. The soap will meet in the middle and create a unique swirl! If you’re not happy with the amount of swirl, use a chopstick or dowel (swirling tool) to help the swirl along. But don’t help too much, or you’ll just wind up mixing the colors!
SIX: Spray the soap again with Isopropyl (Rubbing) Alcohol to pop any bubbles. Allow soap to harden for 4-6 hours.
