Step 1: Line up 2 of your disposable cups. Assign one cup orange and one cup black. To the orange cup, add 4 grams of orange peel powder, 3 drops of fun soap colorant orange oxide, and 6 grams of Vegetable Glycerin. To the black cup, add 5 grams of Activated Charcoal and 7 grams of Vegetable Glycerin. Stir each cup individually to make a paste. Set aside.
Step 2 Prepare Your Fish: Melt 70 grams of Shea Butter Melt and Pour. Add 3 grams of Oceans fragrance oil; stir. Divide equally into your 2 disposable cups and mix thoroughly. Pour both the orange and black soap into the fish mold at the same time. Allow to set up. Then, remove from mold.
Step 3: Prepare Your Sand: In a disposable cup, place 4 grams of Orange Peel Powder, 6 grams of Vegetable Glycerin, 3 drops of Fun Soap Colorant Orange Oxide and 2 drops of Fun Soap Colorant Brown Oxide. Stir to make a paste. In a glass container, melt 60 grams of Shea Butter Melt and Pour Soap in the microwave 30 seconds at a time. Stir gently. Keep melting until all soap is in a liquid state. Add 3 grams of Oceans fragrance oil; stir. Add the paste to your melted soap and stir. Fill the bottom of one cavity of the Basic Rectangle Mold with the melted soap. Allow to set up.
Step 4: Prepare Your Water: Weigh out and melt 60 grams of SLS Free Clear Melt and Pour Soap. Add 3 grams of Oceans fragrance oil and 1 drop of Da Bomb Soap Dye Blue. Before pouring the water portion, spray the sand layer with rubbing alcohol. Pour into mold.
Step 5: When the soap has set up slightly and has a film, place your fish on top. Allow to finish setting up. Once the soap has set, carefully remove the soap from the molds.
Step 6: Optional: Using a toothpick, remove the buggy eye portion from the fish. Spray lightly with alcohol. Using a dab of melted soap base, adhere the googly eyes.
