  3. Weigh 0.5 oz. of Extra Clear Soap Base. Place in small beaker and melt in microwave.
  4. Add the purple/pink mixture to the clear melted soap and mix well.
  5. Using a dropper, suction the colored soap and deposit/paint the flower in the plastic mold. Spritz with alcohol when done. Place dropper in warm water to keep it free flowing and the soap from hardening.

  15. Spritz the colored soap in the clamshell with rubbing alcohol. Place one clamshell on a scale and tare to zero. Fill with 1 oz. of melted soap. Repeat with remaining 8 clamshells. Spritz soap again with alcohol and let harden for about 15-20 minutes.   
  16. Melt 9 oz. of Ultra White Soap Base. Stir in 7 ml of Dragonfruit & Pear Fragrance Oil and 1/2 tsp. poppy seeds. Stir well.
