Great for using left over soap


1 to 3 different colored soaps
Clear base
White base
2" tube mold
1/2" tube mold or dowel


Prep the inside of the 2" tube mold and the outside of the 1/2" mold with a release agent. Place the 1/2" mold in the middle of the 2", pour a small amount of soap into the bottom of mold to seal. With a lemon zester, shave enough of the colored soaps to fill the 2" mold around the 1/2" mold, set in freezer 5 to 15 min. Melt enough clear soap to fill your 2" mold, you may scent this the way you want. Fill outer mold with your clear soap, shake or tap side to remove trapped air. Allow soap to set, then remove inner mold. You can now fill this void with the white base, (color this in a contrasting color) allow this soap to set, and remove your finished soap from the mold.
