Step 1:  Prepare your Fall Leaves:  Using 3 of your mixing bowls weight out and place 80 grams of Goat's Milk Melt and Pour Soap into each one. 

Step 2:  Next, melt the first bowl of soap in the microwave 30 seconds at a time.  Stir gently.  Keep melting until all soap is in a liquid state. 

Step 3:  Add 25 drops of FUN Tomato Red and 10 drops of FUN Red Oxide Soap Colorant.  Stir well.  Next, add 4 grams of Fresh Fallen Leaves fragrance oil.  Mix again.  Then, pour soap into your dime size leaves mold. Spritz with alcohol and allow to fully set up.  Set any unused soap aside.

Please Note:  In order to have enough red leaf embeds, you will need to fill your dime sized leaf mold an additional (4) times with red soap. 

Step 4:  Once your dime sized leaf mold has set up, place the mold upside down and gently ease the soap leaves out of the mold.  Then, remelt your red soap and fill your embeds again.  Repeat until all red soap is used.  Set all finished red soap leaf embeds aside.

Step 5:  Prepare your Tree Base:  This should be done while you are working on the red leaf embeds.  In another microwave safe glass container, weigh out and melt 1200 grams of Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap in the microwave 30 seconds at a time. Stir gently. Keep melting until all soap is in a liquid state.

Step 6:  Add 60 grams Fresh Fallen Leaves fragrance oil; stir well.  Once incorporated, pour the soap into your square loaf mold.  Spritz the soap with alcohol.  Allow to partially set up.


Step 7:  Next, insert several milkshake straws vertically into your partially set up soap.  Now, allow soap to fully set up.  Then, remove the straws.

Step 8:  While you are waiting for your square loaf mold to set up, start your orange leaf embeds.  Melt the second bowl of 80 grams of Goat's Milk Melt and Pour Soap in the microwave in 30 second increments.  Keep melting until all soap is in a liquid state.

Step 9:  Add 15 drops of FUN Orange Oxide Soap Colorant; stir.  Then, add 4 grams of Fresh Fallen Leaves fragrance oil.  Stir well.  Then, pour soap into your dime size leaves mold. Spritz with alcohol and allow to fully set up.  Set any unused soap aside.

Please Note:  In order to have enough orange leaf embeds, you will need to fill your dime sized leaf mold an additional (4) times with orange soap. 

Step 10:  Once your dime sized leaf mold has set up, place the mold upside down and gently ease the soap leaves out of the mold.  Then, remelt your orange soap and fill your embeds again.  Repeat until all orange soap is used.  Set all finished orange soap leaf embeds aside with your red ones.

Step 11: Fill the Trunks:  In one of your microwave safe glass container, weigh out and melt 80 grams of Goat's Milk Melt and Pour Soap in the microwave 30 seconds at a time. Stir gently. Keep melting until all soap is in a liquid state.

Step 12:  Add 20 drops FUN Brown Oxide Soap Colorant and 4 grams of Fresh Fallen Leaves fragrance oil.  Stir well. 

Step 13:  Moving quickly, use the disposable pipettes to fill the open straw holes in your soap loaf.  Allow this to set up.

Step 14:  While you are waiting for your tree trucks to set up, start your yellow leaf embeds.  Melt the last bowl of 80 grams of Goat's Milk Melt and Pour Base in the microwave in 30 second increments.  Keep melting until all soap is in a liquid state.

Step 15:  Add 15 drops of FUN Yellow Oxide Soap Colorant; stir.  Then, add 4 grams of Fresh Fallen Leaves fragrance oil.  Stir well.  Then, pour soap into your dime size leaves mold. Spritz with alcohol and allow to fully set up.  Set any unused soap aside.

Please Note:  In order to have enough yellow leaf embeds, you will need to fill your dime sized leaf mold an additional (4) times with yellow soap. 

Step 16:  Once your dime sized leaf mold has set up, place the mold upside down and gently ease the soap leaves out of the mold.  Then, remelt your yellow soap and fill your embeds again.  Repeat until all yellow soap is used.  Set all finished yellow soap leaf embeds aside with your red and orange ones.

Step 17: Prepare the Green Portion:  In a microwave safe glass container, weigh out and melt 180 grams of Goat's Milk Melt and Pour Soap in the microwave 30 seconds at a time. Stir gently. Keep melting until all soap is in a liquid state.

Step 18:  Add 60 drops FUN Kelly Green Soap Colorant and 9 grams of Fresh Fallen Leaves fragrance oil.  Stir well.  In a mixing bowl, set aside 60 grams of melted green soap.

Step 19:  Spritz the square loaf mold with alcohol.  Then, carefully pour the remaining melted green soap into the square loaf mold.  Allow this to fully set up. 

Step 20:  While the green layer is setting up, gently stir all of your leaf embeds to incorporate all the colors together.  Now, remelt the 60 grams of green soap that you set aside.

Step 21:  Spritz the set up green layer of soap with alcohol.  Then, using the 60 grams of green soap, pour a thin layer on top of the original green layer.  Then, sprinkle the variously colored leaves on top of the green soap in the mold. 

Step 22:  Melt 180 grams of Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap in the microwave.  Pour this over the leaves to hold any loose leaves in place.  Allow this to set up.


Please Note:  Due to the natural color of the fragrance oil Fresh Fallen Leaves, there may be some slight discoloration in the clear portions of your soap.
