Recipe for Leaves:
100 grams- Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base
4 grams- Blackberry Sage Fragrance Oil
5 drops Fun Soap Colorant Kelly Green

Step 1:  Weigh out and melt 150 grams of Diamond Clear M&P Soap Base.  Do this in the microwave in 30 second increments.  Stir gently in between until all the soap is melted.  Once your soap is ready, add the fun soap colorants ultramarine violet and black oxide.  Stir well.

Step 2:  Next, add 6 grams of Blackberry Sage fragrance oil; stir well to incorporate.  Next, pour all of the soap into your blackberries mold.  If you have any air bubbles in your soap, spritz the soap with alcohol.  Then, set aside.  Allow the soap to set up at room temperature. 

Step 3:  On a flat work space, lay out a piece of wax paper.  Then, once again weigh out and melt 100 grams of Diamond Clear M&P Soap Base in the microwave.  This time add 5 drops fun soap colorant kelly green and stir.

Step 4:  Then, add 4 grams of Blackberry Sage Fragrance Oil and stir.  Then, pour the green soap in the center of the wax paper.  Spritz with alcohol if needed.  Allow to fully set up. 

Cold Process Soap Ingredients:

517 grams of Water
188 grams of Lye
136 grams of Sweet Almond Oil
340 grams of Coconut Oil 76
163 grams of Grapeseed Oil
340 grams of Shea Butter
272 grams of Palm Oil
109 grams of Castor Oil
54 grams Blackberry Sage Fragrance Oil
43 grams of Sodium Lactate
28 grams of Vanilla White Color Stabilizer

Cold Process Soap Colorants:
18 grams of Fun Soap Colorant Ultramarine Violet
2 grams of Fun Soap Colorant Black Oxide
15 grams of Fun Soap Colorant Kelly Green
4 grams of Titanium Dioxide (for the whipped topping)
15 grams of Titanium Dioxide (for the white soap portion)

Step 1:  Prep your work area and put on your safety gear. 

Step 2:  Now, make your lye solution.  Then, weigh out and melt the soaping ingredients.  Once melted, separate out 15 grams and place it in one of your mixing bowls.  Then, add the 4 grams of titanium dioxide to this and stir well to make a white paste.  This will be for the whipped topping.  To a separate bowl, weigh out 45 grams of soaping oils.  To this add the 15 grams of Titanium Dioxide and make a paste.  This will be for the white soap portion. 

Step 3:  When the lye solution has cooled, stir in the sodium lactate.

Step 4:  While you are waiting on temperatures, in one of your mixing bowls weigh out your ultramarine violet and black oxide soap colorant.  To another mixing bowl, weigh out your kelly green colorant.   Set both bowls aside.  Also, remove your blackberries from the mold and trim off any excess soap.  Remove the flat green layer of M&P soap from the wax paper.  Then, using a knife, cut out several leaf shapes.  Set aside. 

Step 5:  When both the soaping oils and the lye solution are ready to be combined, do so.  Then, stick blend for emulsion.  Next, add the vanilla white color stabilizer and fragrance oil.  Then, stick blend to incorporate. 

Step 6:  Now, get your 2 mixing bowls with the colorant.  To each bowl, add 420 grams of soap batter.  Stir each bowl with a spoon to incorporate the color.  Then, set aside.  Finally, to the bowl that contains the smaller amount of titanium dioxide paste, add 227 grams of soap batter.  Stir this well to incorporate.  Then, set aside.

Step 7:  To the remaining soap batter bowl, add the larger amount of titanium dioxide paste and stick blend in well.

Step 8:  Next, quickly stick blend the ultramarine violet/ black soap.  Then, starting with the purple soap batter drop several "plops"  in a clockwise manner in the white soap batter bowl.  Do this until all of the purple batter is gone.  Then, repeat the same action with the green batter, aiming for different areas in the "clock ".

Step 9:  Now, drag the spatula in one large circular pattern once through the bowl.  When you are done, directly pick up the spatula.
  
Step 10:  Next, moving slowly pour the soap batter into the mold.  While pouring, carefully move the soap batter back and forth the whole length of the mold.  When the soap has set up enough, take the mixing bowl set aside for the whipped topping, and carefully heap it on top of the soap. 

Step 11:  When your whipped topping is in place, position several blackberries and leaves onto the top. 

Step 12:  After 48 hours, place the soap into the freezer for about 4 hours.  Then, remove the soap and let it reach room temperature.  Then, carefully remove the soap from the mold.  When ready cut the soap slices.  Allow them to further cure before using.
