Prep your work area and put on your safety gear. Then, make your lye solution. Next, weigh out and melt the soaping ingredients. Once they are melted, separate out 12 grams and place it in one of your mixing bowls. Then, add the 8 grams of titanium dioxide to this and stir well to make a fluid white liquid.
While you are waiting on temperatures, measure out and cut a piece of cardboard to the length of your mold. You will be holding this cardboard upright in the center of your mold while you are varying the colors of the soap during the pour.
When both the lye solution and soaping oils are ready to be mixed together, do so. Stick blend to emulsion. Next, add the fragrance oil and once again, stick blend to incorporate.
Now, get your white liquid mixing bowl and add 560 grams of soap batter. To the empty mixing bowl add the neon pink soap colorant and 800 grams of soap batter. Finally, to the remaining soap batter add the neon blue soap colorant.
Starting with the white soap, stick blend to incorporate. Then, continue with the pink, and finally the blue.
Now, place the piece of cardboard in the center of the mold. Use one hand to keep the cardboard in place while the other hand pours the soap into one side of the mold. On the other side pour the next color. You will want this soap to be about 1 inch deep. When both sides look even , carefully pour a thin white layer of soap on both sides. Next, rotate the colors so that the side that originally had the pink will now get a blue layer and vice versa. Then, repeat with a white layer. Depending on the thickness of your layers, you may need to repeat another layer until the mold is filled. Then, gently pick up the cardboard and tap your mold.
Optional: You may heap the mold if you choose, just make sure you leave some of the soap for dollops (or decorations) on top.
Next, place your three cups in front of you. Open each Ziploc bag, and line the inside of each cup so that the mouth of the cup is the opening of the Ziploc bag. Next, using a spoon, scoop each colored soap into its own Ziploc bag. Then, seal the bag and cut the tip of one corner. Try to keep the cut small.
Now, use the various bags to add the dollops or designs to the top of the soap.
After 24 hours, remove the soap from the mold. Then, slice the bars. Allow them to further cure before using.
