Debbie posted some useful tips about making this soap over on her Daily Soap Ditties blog:
The problem with clear colors is that they bleed. But one way to get around that is to make the bleeding unnoticeable. These clouds might absorb some of the light blue color, but since they’re encased in blue, you won’t notice it. Also, I used so little blue color that if any bleeds into the green grass, the green will still be darker.
The Dreamy Soapsicles have white glittery clouds, though. In order for the clouds to sparkle, I mixed in quite a bit of opal glitter and poured the soap while it was pretty hot so all the glitter would sink to the bottom. Then, when I unmolded my white soap sheet, I used the bottom as my face which was now sparkling like crazy!
If you’d like to buy finished soap rather than trying for the patience required to make these soapy creations, SoapyLove’s etsy shop can be found here. If you’d like to learn firsthand from Debbie how to make soap, book out the weekend of July 19th to take a trip to Washington. Details are not yet finalized (patience grasshopper, patience) but Debbie from SoapyLove will be teaching at least two classes at Otion during a Soapmaking Extravaganza Weekend (limited to just 12 people) July 19th and 2oth.
