DIY Lilac Sunday Handmade Soap

Have you ever wanted to know how us crazy soap people get such beautiful designs? Here's the way I make my Lilac Sunday Soap.

First, I plan and pre-mix my colors.

Then, I mix up the entire batch of soap. When everything is mixed well, I portion out the soap in 3 bowls since I'm going to have 3 different colors. Next, I add the green color and the fragrance to one of the bowls, mix well and pour the soap into my molds.

I mixed the green layer up pretty good, so it gets thick, because I want the soap batter to be thick enough to create these grassy peaks with my spatula.

Next, I sprinkle a thin layer of skin safe mica on top of the green. I have to work fast because I have two bowls of soap batter waiting for me.

After the room is dusted lightly in gold, I add my white color and fragrance to the next bowl and mix. Then, I pour this layer into the molds.

I repeat the same process for the purple layer...

I then add a little detail with my spatula and lastly, top off the soap with a dusting of skin safe glitter.

Voila! Here is the same batch of Lilac Sunday Soap cut.

Planning my soap is an interesting process because I cut down through the layers. What you see on the top of the soap is very different looking than the finished bar.
