Step Three: Pop your Black Soap Out
Invert your mold and gently pry your flat soap out. Face it so that the underside of the soap is facing you (this is the more dull side).
Using the size of your soap mold as a guide, draw your design or find a great silhouette on the internet and shrink it down. Print it on normal paper on your inkjet or laser printer.
Place your design on top of the soap. Use a small exacto knife to trace around the design, through the soap. Make sure your soap is on a cutting board or thick piece of cardboard. You don’t want to accidentally cut your counter.
If you’re not so good with the knife, you can also use a small cookie cutter to shorten this step up.
