Show your patriotism with these cool American flag soaps!
You Will Need:
–White Soap Base
–Clear Soap Base
–Rectangle Soap Mold
–Brilliant Blue Liquid B&B Colorant
–Allura Red Liquid B&B Colorant
–Magenta Liquid B&B Colorant
–Bath & Body Safe Fragrance Oil (optional)
-Microwave Safe Pouring Container
Melt about 2-3 ounces of white soap base in the microwave. Add a small amount (3-4%) of fragrance oil and mix thoroughly. Do not add color.
Pour the white soap into one of the rectangle mold cavities and allow to cool.
Repeat steps 1 and 2, adding liquid colorant to make a red soap and a blue soap of the same size. For a deep red, we used the Allura Red Liquid Colorant plus a few drops of Magenta.
When all of the soaps have cooled, remove them from the molds. If you have trouble removing them, try placing them in the refrigerator for a few minutes and try again.
Carefully cut the blue soap into small rectangles, and the red and white soaps into thin strips to form the stripes.
Melt some more clear soap base in the microwave and add fragrance if desired. Pour a thin layer of clear soap on the bottom of the rectangle soap molds.
Arrange the stars and stripes chunks in the molds to form a flag, gently pressing them into the clear base but not all the way to the bottom of the mold. Remember: The flag must look backwards to you so that the finished flag will point the right direction.
Re-melt the clear base if necessary and do a final pour to the top of the rectangle molds. Allow to cool completely.
When the soaps have cooled completely, gently remove them from the molds and enjoy!
