Orestis Craft Center have a blog dedicated to soap recipes, no matter what lever of soaper you are there’ll be a recipe for you!

Equipment

  • 6 heatproof containers
  • 3 teaspoons
  • 1 set of measuring spoons
  • 2 plastic droppers
  • Plastic soap mold (Soap block 1 kg)
  • 2 Knives (small-big)
  • Microwave oven

Execution

Step 1

Cut the soap base into small meltable chunks and place into 3 separate heatproof containers.

Place the containers in a microwave for intervals of 30 seconds ensuring the base is melted.

Step 2

Colour and fragrance the melted soap as follows:

  • 1st portion: 4cm Zenicolor Cyan and 6ml Bamboo fragrance oil
  • 2nd portion: 1ml White Pigment and 6ml Bamboo fragrance oil
  • 3rd portion: 1 Tad Silver Sparks Mica and 6ml Bamboo fragrance oil

Step 3

Pour the Zenicolor Cyan coloured soap in your container, then pour the white soap making sure your movement is vertical or horizontal. Now pour the silver coloured soap diagonally and in a zig zag motion.

Step 4

Use a wooden stick to make patterns and spray with the rubbing alcohol to remove the bubbles.

Step 5

Repeat the process until the container is full.

Step 6

Put the container in the fridge until the soap is fully hardened.

When ready, remove the soap from the container and cut out a big piece. Use a small knife to cut the edges in such a way that the soap resembles an Igneous Rock.
