ONE: Melt 24 ounces of Clear Melt and Pour Base in the microwave on 30 second intervals. Once fully melted, add a drop of liquid blue to "blue" your soap.
TWO: Into a medium, heat safe container, pour 12 ounces of the melted soap and cover for use later.
THREE: Spritz your silicone mold with rubbing alcohol and pour the soap about half way up the mold. As soon as you have poured soap into each section of the mold, spritz with rubbing alcohol and add in a bird eraser. Spritz again with rubbing alcohol to prevent bubbles. TIP: Spritz the embeds liberally with alcohol before adding them to your molds to prevent bubbles and separation.
FOUR: Take remaining 12 ounces of soap (re-heat if necessary), add in the 0.35 ounces of Spiced Mahogany Fragrance Oil and split into two containers. To one container add 4 mini scoops of Cappuccino Mica and to the other add 8 mini scoops of Luster Black Mica. Stir well to prevent any clumping or speckling.
FIVE: Check your soap to see if a thick enough film has started to form, you don't want the second layer to bleed through. Make sure the temperature of your soap is now around 120 degrees. Spritz your soap in the mold with rubbing alcohol and double-pour the containers of Cappuccino and Luster Black as the final layer. Spritz again with rubbing alcohol.
SIX: Leave for 4-8 hours and unmold.
