How to make Stained Glass Soap
Make a few bars using different translucent colors.
I used the pretty much standard 6 cavity mold, Stephenson clear ST and Zenicolor colorblock system for mine.
- Use non-bleeding colors only.
- Make sure you pour to the same height in every mold.
- Let the bars set and cool down really well, preferably overnight at least.
Cut up your colored bars into random shapes.
Fill up your mold with the shapes, leaving space all around and between the pieces.
Fill up the mold using black (or other) colored soap.
I used activated charcoal for mine.
- Again, make sure to use a non-bleeding color for this.
- Make sure to fill up the mold to exactly the same height as the colored pieces.
- If after setting the soaps are not exactly flat, or the black overlaps the colors a bit, you can put on gloves and rub the soaps over a wet piece of terrycloth (or other rough cloth) to even them up.
