YOU WILL NEED:


STEP 1

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.

 

STEP 2

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.

STEP 3

Add one of the contrast non-bleed soap colour to the first 334gm of white soap base.

 

STEP 4

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.

 

STEP 5

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.

STEP 6

Once the initial pour has cooled, add the Black transparent soap 2/5 the way up the mould. 

STEP 7

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.

STEP 8


Reverse the previous steps adding another layer of black and then colour making sure to cool between pours.

STEP 9

Place in the fridge overnight and cut into quarters once removed from the mould
