Step One: Melt a small amount (3 ounces will be more than enough) of clear or white soap. If you want pastel colors, use white soap. If you want bright vibrant colors, use clear soap. Tip: use a small dish to melt the soap. If you use a large Pyrex container with such a small amount of soap, it takes longer to melt and may shatter your glass.
Step Two: Color your melted soap base with any color your heart desires, so long as it is nonbleeding. In the photos below, we used non-bleeding blue and non-bleeding red color. A list of all of Bramble Berry’s non-bleeding colorants is here.
Step Three: Use a dropper or the soap injector to slowly color in the detail striping in the flag. Spritz with alcohol liberally to help the soap fill in all the crevices.
Step Four: Melt a small amount of White Melt & Pour (if not already melted) and pour melted white soap base into the stars portion of the mold.
Check back this week to see the final steps and tips on how to make the stars stand out!
