Make a licorice allsort, this soap is a visual stunner, sure to please. Simple instructions are included below.
YOU WILL NEED:
Chop the soap into small chunks, around 2cm square. Separate the soap into piles of the following: 3 x 334gm white, 1x 500gm transparent.
This soap is made in 5 layers, so keep in mind when pouring each layer - it should only be 1/5 of the depth. Any left over soap can be melted later in the project or another time.
Melt the first 334gm white soap in a microwave for about 3 minutes, in 30 second blasts to ensure the soap isn't over heated. Alternatively use a double boiler to melt.
Add the 1/4tsp of aniseed oil and mix thoroughly.

Add one of the contrast non-bleed soap colour to the first 334gm of white soap base.
Pour the coloured soap base 1/5 the way up into the 12 cavity/loaf mould giving it a quick spray with alcohol to remove any bubbles.
** spray with alcohol between each layer to remove bubbles and also assist bonding.
Next melt all the transparent soap and add the block of Black non-bleed soap colour.
Add 1/2 tsp of Aniseed oil and mix thoroughly.
Once the initial pour has cooled, add the Black transparent soap 2/5 the way up the mould.
Melt 334gm of white melt and pour soap, adding the 1/4tsp of Aniseed oil. Again once the soap has cooled, pour the white layer to 3/5 way up the mould.
Reverse the previous steps adding another layer of black and then colour making sure to cool between pours.
Place in the fridge overnight and cut into quarters once removed from the mould
