Step 7: Now, we will begin coloring the dough. Begin with the first separated portion of 285 grams. Add 3 drops of Neon Green FUN Soap Colorant to the bowl. Using your hands mix to incorporate the colorant completely. Roll this portion into a ball. Set it aside once more.
Step 8: Next, you are going to color the three smaller portions of your bubble bar dough. The first bowl will remain white. Simply roll this portion into a ball. Set it aside for the moment. In the second bowl, create the light blue color by adding 2 drops Ultramarine Blue FUN Soap Colorant and 3 drops Neon Blue FUN Soap Colorant. Using your hands, mix to incorporate the colorant completely. Roll this portion into a ball. Set it aside as well. The third bowl with be a darker blue. So, add 4 drops Neon Blue FUN Soap Colorant and 3 drops Ultramarine Violet FUN Soap Colorant. Again, using your hands, blend the color completely and evenly into the dough.
Step 9: Prepare your area to roll dough. First, place a mat or parchment paper (about 13” in length) in front of you. Lightly coat it with baking soda to prevent sticking. Also, lightly coat the rolling pin. You will want to place a second matt nearby to transfer your bubble bar slices.
Step 10: At this point we will begin rolling out our dough. This process will be similar to rolling out a pumpkin roll. Begin with the light blue bubble bar dough. Place the ball in front of you and flatten it slightly. Then, roll it into a rectangle shape. Now, you will need the dark blue dough. Place it directly on top of the light blue dough. Then, roll it out in the same manner as the previous layer, maintain the same shape. Finally, place the white layer on top of the dark blue layer. Once again, roll the bubble bar dough and maintain the same shape.
Step 11: At this time, we will roll the dough into a loaf. So, with the mat in front of you horizontally, lift the edge of your mat. Slowly and gently roll the dough. You want to roll it in the same manner you would roll a pumpkin roll.
Step 12: Once you have a rolled loaf you are ready to slice. First, make a thin slice on each end to remove the edges. Then, slice your loaf into six even slices. Carefully set each slice on the second mat or parchment paper where it will not be disturbed during the next part of the process.
Step 13: Return to your first mat or parchment paper. Again, lightly coat the mat/parchment and the rolling pin with baking soda. You will want the second mat/parchment nearby.
Step 14: Now, you are going to take your green bubble bar dough and divide it into six portions equal portions. Take one of the 6 potions of the green dough and roll it into a thick snake shape with your hands. Roll this flat to create the body and make sure the width is about the same as a bubble bar slice.
Step 15: Next you are going to carefully transfer one of the bubble bar slices onto the green dough. You will want the slice to be slightly closer to one end.
Step 16: Then, take the longer end of the green dough and gently lift it up to the slice. Delicately press the green dough onto the slice and smooth the seam. This longer end will be the head of your snail. Repeat Steps 14-16 five more times.
Step 17: Now, we are going to create the snails’ smiling faces! Take the 15 grams of dough
set aside in the beginning. Take about 9 grams of the white dough and roll this dough into 12 oval shapes. Note that this will spread out as you press the whites of the eyes into the dough. So, make your ovals slightly smaller than you need. Gently press two eyes on each snail towards the top of the head.
Step 18: Take the remaining 6 grams of dough and add 2 drops of Black Oxide FUN Soap Colorant. Use your hands mix to incorporate the colorant completely. Then, roll the black portion into 12 small balls and 6 tiny snakes. You will gently press one ball onto each white eye. Also, use the tiny snake to create a smile on each snail!
Step 19: Allow it to setup for about 24-48 hours. The setup time can vary depending on the humidity.
Once setup, your bubble bar snails are ready to use!
