Melt & Pour Glycerin Soap Recipes3

Color Blend Melt & Pour Soap Tutorial

^Above^ The finished product - A beautiful bar of color-blended soap!

Prepare your ingredients. You will need two microwave-proof containers.

Color and scent both bases. (See Basic Melt and Pour instructions in the following post!)

Test temperature. If the temperature of either base is higher than 130 ºF, cover base with saran wrap and check temperature every five minutes.

When base is 120 ºF to 130 ºF (this applies ONLY to Bramble Berry, Inc. bases - other melt and pour bases have higher or lower temperature points. If using another brand of base, the base should not be steaming and be slightly viscous and within 60 to 90 seconds of setting up), make sure the colorants and fragrance are stirred in completely.

Pick up both colors. Position each colorant on opposite sides of the mold and start pouring slowly. Keep each color of base as close to the opposing sides of the mold as possible. By pouring slowly, you'll inhibit the colorant mixing.

Spray the poured soap with alcohol and wait 3 to 4 hours until the base is set up before popping out of molds and wrapping.
