Shark Week on the Discovery channel starts June 26th. If you’re a fan, this Shark Soap project is for you! To create the appearance of crashing waves, white and blue soap are swirled together. Then, shark toys are placed into the soap to look like they are jumping out of the water. I scented it with Coconut Mango Fragrance Oil. It’s smells like a tropical vacation. =)
To achieve the colors in this soap, I used Caribbean Blue Mica and Brilliant Blue LabColor. The mica is first mixed with 99% isopropyl alcohol to get rid of clumps before it’s added to clear soap to create a rich blue color. For the very top layer I used Brilliant Blue LabColor. It gives clear soap a tint of color, but still allows the white soap to be seen. LabColors do need to be diluted before use. If you’re unfamiliar with LabColors, click here to learn more. Then check out this post to learn how to dilute them.
