  • 9 Cube Soap Silicone Mold
  • 32 oz. Stephenson Jelly Melt and Pour
  • 10 mL Summer Fling Fragrance Oil
  • ½ tsp. Fine Iridescent Glitter
  • Fuchsia Lab Color
  • Canary LabColor
  • Orange LabColor
  • Optional: Droppers
  1. DILUTING LABCOLOR: You’ll need to dilute your LabColors in order to use them in this project. We like diluting the small bottle of LabColor in 4 oz. of distilled water. For more on diluting LabColors, check out this blog post.
  2. Cut the Stephenson Jelly Melt and Pour into small pieces. Place in a large heat safe container and melt using 1 minute bursts. This melt and pour base takes a little longer to melt than regular melt and pour soap, so longer bursts are needed. Keep stirring between each burst but only a few times; jelly soap has a tendency to create bubbles. Because the soap base is so thick, the bubbles do not rise to the top like regular melt and pour bases. Once melted, remove from the microwave. The base will be thick.
  3. Add the Summer Fling Fragrance Oil and glitter. Gently stir to thoroughly incorporate. Stirring gently and slowly will help prevent air bubbles.
  4. Split the large batch into three separate containers, each weighing about 10.6 oz. The base will start to cool and thicken, this is fine. If necessary, place the containers back into the microwave and heat using 20 second bursts until the melt and pour base is thinner and more workable. Remember, it will always be a little bit thicker than normal melt and pour bases. =) To one container, add 1 mL of diluted Fuchsia Labcolor and gently stir to combine the color. Pour the pink soap into 3 cavities of the mold, filling each about ¾ full.
  5. To another container of soap, mix in 2 mL of diluted Canary LabColor and pour into three cavities of the mold. In another container, mix in 2 mL of the diluted Orange LabColor and pour into three cavities of the mold. Because the soap is so thick, spraying the top with 99% isopropyl alcohol is not needed. The alcohol does not work very well to disperse bubbles. Allow the soap to fully cool and harden for several hours. Gently remove from the mold. To use, tear off a small piece of the soap and work it into a lather with a loofah, washcloth or sponge.
