There are as many variations of soap as the colours of the rainbow:
- Doily (the ones our mums used in saucers when they served tea and coffee)
- Molds (I used a muffin pan)
- Glycerin tubes
- Liquid measuring cup
- Cotton buds
- Sharp Knife
- Cutting board
- Nonstick spray
- Palette knife
- Disposable cotton rounds
- Household alcohol
- 1. Spray the muffin pan with the nonstick spray.
- 2. Place the pan aside and then chop the glycerin tube into small chunks with a knife. Place it into the measuring cup, and microwave the glycerin chunks on high for about 2 minutes. Make sure that all the pieces have melted.
- 3. Remove the melted glycerin from the microwave and pour a little bit of mixture into the muffin pans, just enough to cover the bottom of the pan. Allow to cool for 5 min.
- 4. Gently place the doily into the pan on top of the first pouring.
- 5. Pour the rest of the melted glycerin into the pan, use the cotton buds to remove any air bubbles. Allow to cool for 12 hours.
- 6. Release the soap from the pans using a palette knife.
- 7. Rub the newly made soap bar on a towel cloth to remove any rough edges.
- 8. Your soap is ready to be displayed.
Tip: Rub the surface with an alcohol cotton pad, which will eliminate oil bubbles.
