This week I decided to clean up my work area and found some clear melt and pour soap base, along with a few colors. I decided to play around with the two colors.
I melted about 8oz of the base and separated it into two equal containers. In one measuring cup I added yellow and blue in the other. My plan was to make two soaps, one yellow with blue swirl and the other blue with yellow swirl. I poured the yellow into the mold, followed by the blue in a separate mold. Then I added a little blue to the yellow and swirled with a toothpick. Unfortunately, that took longer than I expected. By the time I was ready to pour the yellow into the blue, the yellow had thickened quite a bit. I peeled what I could out of my pitcher and dropped it into my blue.
The results after the soaps set.
I actually prefer the blue, with the glob of yellow in the middle. The yellow came out a bit neon-ish. Both soaps now happily reside in my bathrooms. Hopefully guests will enjoy their beauty.
