Start by weighing out the amounts of Diamond Clear and Mango Butter Melt and Pour Soap needed for each layer and separating them into bowls. Make sure you have each plastic cup set up on angles. We set one side of the cup up on a note pad. This allowed us to create angles with each layer. Melt down your soaps in the microwave. Once they are completely melted down, follow the specific amounts for dye and fragrance noted above for each color. Weigh out and add the specific amounts for each color in their own separate bowls. Then mix each bowl.
Then carefully begin to layer colors inside your cups. Spray each individual layer with rubbing alcohol to get rid of air bubbles and allow each layer to form a film, but not completely setup before starting the next. Make sure to keep changing the angle of the cups so as to get different layering effects. About half way through, go ahead and add your 24 K Gold Mica Pigment, one gram per cup. Then go ahead and keep layering.
Once you have finished layering, let your soaps sit in the cup until they fully harden. We suggest putting them in the fridge or freezer for a bit to make it easier to remove the soaps from the cups.
When your soaps are completely hardened, go ahead and remove them from the cups. Then using your knife, cut each soap in the shape of rocks until you are satisfied! We found that by cutting more angles into the soap it took on more of the shape we were looking for.
