You will fall in love with these ones! Let’s get to the fun part:making them.
You will need:
- vegetable based clear and white soap bases
- food coloring
- 10 small cups
- 2 plastic glasses
- a microwavable glass
- fragrance oil (optional)
Start by taking some of the transparent soap and cut it in small pieces. Put them in a glass that is suitable for a microwave. Then, microwave it until it melts, around 40 to 60 seconds. If you want to add some fragrance, do it now. Divide the melted soap into 5 small cups.
Put a different food color in each. Mix it with a toothpick. Let it cool.
Do the same process with the white soap. Leave it to cool for about an hour. Take it out of the cup.
And now comes the fun part. Take all of them and cut them into random pieces. Put a mix of these into each plastic glass.
Melt some more of the clear and white soap,separately. Then put the molten clear soap over the colorful pieces in the glass. Add some of the white soap too.
You can put this into the micro for about 5 second so the colors will make a nice gradient. However, it is optional and you can leave it just like that. The cup might bent from the hot soap and it’s okay. Just watch out if you decide to put it in the microwave,as you don’t want to melt a hole in your mold! Wait for your soap to cool completely, before removing the plastic glass with scissors.
Take a knife and cut the edges of the top of the gem. It should look like this:
And congrats, your magic is done! Your soap gem is ready. You can gift it to someone, or use it by yourself. You can’t, but love this wonderful piece of art!
