COLORANT PREP Mix 1 teaspoon of the Tangerine Wow Colorant with 1 Tablespoon of Sweet Almond Oil. Be sure to hand mix and saturate the powder before turning on the mini mixer, otherwise you’ll create a cloud of colorant! Repeat for the remaining colorants (except Non-Bleeding Cherry wich is already liquid).
SOAP INSTRUCTIONS ONE: Carefully add your lye to your water (never the other way around!) and stir until clear. Set aside to cool.
TWO: Melt the Palm Oil and mix well. Weigh out all of the oils and mix together making sure they are completely blended (you may need to warm up the mix).
THREE: Slowly add the lye water to your oils when both are under 130 degrees. Use your stick blender until you reach a light trace. Split your soap batter into 6 equal batches. There is no need for perfection in your distribution.
FOUR: Color each batch of soap batter with the prepared colorants. Start adding and hand stirring with a whisk until you get the color you like. I ended up using about ¾ of each prepared colorant and .2 oz of Cherry color - so I had some left over for another project.
FIVE: We are looking for a rainbow effect, so line up your colors in order: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple. Starting at the center of the brownie tray mold, pour all of the red soap in a straight line down the center of the soap. Keep all of the soap as close to the center as possible. Then, take the orange soap and pour down the center, right on top of where you poured the red. Keep going with all of the colors in the same manner, and as you pour the soap will push out to the side and create a rainbow effect!
SIX (optional): If you want to, now would be a good time to swirl. But not too much! You don’t want the colors to mix, just to interact a wee little bit. I did a simple back and forth, just one time, with a knife for clean, precise lines.
SEVEN: Let the soap sit in the mold for 24-48 hours, or until it’s hard enough to be removed from the mold.
EIGHT: Unmold your soap onto a cutting board or similar surface. Using the Heart Shaped Cutter, find some areas in the soap with great detail and cut the hearts out.
NINE: Let cure for 4-6 weeks. Enjoy!
