ONE: Melt 6 ounces of white soap base in a heat safe container in the microwave (on 30 second intervals). Once melted, mix in 1 ml of Blue Mix Labcolors. Mix well until you have a baby (egg) blue.
TWO:Add 4 tbsp of corn starch to the soap and mix, mix, mix. It will be a little chunky at first but keep mixing to get rid of the clumps. Once the soap seems to be nearly clump free, (it’s o.k. if there are some lumps) pour a 1/8″ thin layer on to a plate.
THREE: Once the mixture has cooled a little bit and can be handled like play dough (2-3 minutes), roll into little balls, smooth out the texture with your finger and create an egg shape. Roll out 24 balls to have 3 eggs in each nest.
TIP: If the soap gets too hard to work with, just pop it back in the microwave and start the process over.
Optional: Do you want to speckle your eggs? Try the toothbrush technique. Mix your mica with a little bit of rubbing alcohol. Dip your toothbrush into the colorant and run your thumb along the bristles to splatter the color. Warning: you will have shiny, shimmery mica fingers afterwards.
Yes, I’m making you wait…but it will be worth it, promise!
