Rainbow Zebra Print Soap RecipeRainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe

If you are looking for a fun recipe for soap without lye, then check out the latest soap creation from Natures Garden! The Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe is a fun way to create your very own soap using a great melt and pour base. Our design was inspired by the beauty of wild zebras. Did you know that each zebra’s stripes are as unique as your fingerprint? This means that no two zebras will have the same pattern. So, we used the unique design of the stripes and made it even wilder by using a rainbow of different colors. This will leave you with bars of soap that are fun and beautiful.

Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Preparing Your Craft Area

Before you begin creating your recipe there are a few things that you can do to make the process easier and more fun. First, you will want to collect your equipment for this recipe. This way you won’t have your melted soap set up while you look for supplies. While this won’t ruin your recipe, it can become frustrating. Further, you want to make sure your supplies and work area are clean. This will make sure that dirt or crumbs from other projects don’t make their way into your recipe. Also, you can fill up your bullet bottle with rubbing alcohol and place a sprayer on top. This will ensure that you will have this ready to use before your layers set up.  Also, decide what order you want to pour your layers.  We created this soap a few times, varying the order of the colors.  You can choose to pour your colors in any order.

Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Weighing and Scenting the First LayerRainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Weighing and Scenting the First Layer

First, you are going to prepare the bottom layer of your soap loaf. So, weigh 152 grams of the Yogurt Melt and Pour Soap Base into your mixing bowl. Melt the soap thoroughly using 30 second intervals and stir between heating to prevent scorching. Next, weigh 7 grams of the Amazingly Grace Fragrance Oil. Mix this into your soap base. Now, you are ready to pour.

Next, we are going to pour this first layer into our square loaf mold. So, you are going to need to prop up one side. We used a small block of wood, but you can use anything you can find to raise one side of the mold. Creating this angle will allow us to make stripes that better resemble a zebra pattern. Once your layer has been poured remember to spray the top with the rubbing alcohol. This will release any bubbles and allow your layers to stick together.

Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Making the Yellow Layer

Now, we are ready to create our yellow layer for this soap. So, weigh 200 grams of the mp soap base into a clean mixing bowl. Use a microwave in short bursts to melt the soap and mix between heating. After, add 10 grams of the fragrance oil. Plus, you will add 5 drops of the Yelp Yellow FUN Soap Colorant. Make sure to incorporate this your soaps well enough that your color is even. Then, you can get ready to pour.

Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Pouring the Second LayerRainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Pouring the Second Layer

For this step, we are going to be pouring the second layer into the soap mold. First, we need to make sure that the previous layer has set up almost completely. The timing is very important with this recipe.  You want the soap to form a pretty thick film.  However, you don’t want it to be completely hardened.  If it still has some flexibility when you pour your next layer, the line will be more wavy like a zebra instead of sharp and angled.  Once you are sure you are ready to pour, you will need to take your mold off the block and set it flat. Since our last layer was already at an angle, this layer will fill in the spaces. Once you have added all of this layer, lightly spray the top with the rubbing alcohol.

Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Creating the Next LayerRainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Creating the Next Layer to Pour

Now, we are going to make our second white layer for this recipe. So, weigh 152 grams of the soap base into a mixing bowl. Carefully melt the mp soap in a microwave. Then, add 7 grams of the fragrance oil to the mixture. Combine these ingredients thoroughly before you move on to pouring the mixture.

Next, we will get ready to pour this layer. So, check your yellow soap layer and see whether it has set up. Since these layers are fairly thin, they shouldn’t take too long to set up. When your soap is ready you can leave the mold flat and begin to pour. After, you will need to lightly spray the top of this layer with the alcohol.

Next, we are going to be making the teal colored layer for our homemade soap. After you measure 200 grams of soap base, melt the soap using a microwave. Remember to use short bursts and periodically stir. Once your soap is melted add 10 grams of the scented oil and 6 drops of the Teal FUN Soap Colorant. Mix all of your ingredients together well. Then, we can move on to creating this next part of the design.

Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Creating a Forked Layer

This part of the soap will be slightly different than the other layers. We are going to create a forked layer with our teal mixture. First, you will need to pour about half of your teal soap into the mold. For this part, your mold will remain flat on the table. Then, spray the layer with alcohol and allow the soap to set up.

Once your teal layer has set up completely you are ready to add the white portion of the fork. First, you are going to need to tilt your mold. We used two of our blocks to create a bigger tilt and make sure that the white layer was only on one side of the mold. Depending on what you have used to angle your mold, you may need to play with your height a bit before you are ready to pour. Melt 150 grams of the yogurt soap and add 7 grams of the Amazingly Grace Fragrance Oil. Once you have added this white layer you can spray the top with rubbing alcohol. Make sure to leave the soap mold angle the same way until you pour your next layer.

Next, we are going to be finishing the forked layer with the rest of our teal colored soap. So, make sure that the white soap has set up. Then, you can melt the teal soap again. Once your soap has melted you will pour the teal soap into the mold at the same angle as your previous white layer. After, you can spray the tops with rubbing alcohol. Now, this will leave you with a forked appearance for this stripe.

Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Adding the Next White LayerRainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Adding the Next White Layer

Now, we are ready to create our next layer for this soap. So, melt 150 grams of the melt and pour soap in the microwave. After, you will need to include 7 grams of the fragrance oil and mix the ingredient well. Once everything is ready to pour, check that your last layer has mostly set up. If it has, then you can start pouring this layer.

First, you will need to get rid of the angle. So, you can set the mold down flat on your work surface. Now, you will pour this scented white soap on top of your hardened teal layer. Once everything has been added you can spray the top with rubbing alcohol. Then, move on to creating the next layer.

Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Adding the Blue and White LayersRainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Adding the Neon Blue and White Layers

This time you will be mixing up the neon blue layer for our recipe. So, carefully melt another 200 grams of soap into a clean mixing bowl. Once your soap is all melted you will need to add 10 grams of the fragrance oil along with 5 drops of the Neon Blue FUN Soap Colorant. Make sure to mix these ingredients thoroughly. Once the previous layer has completely set up you can add the blue layer on top. Then, spray the top of this layer with the rubbing alcohol.

Now, you will be mixing the next layer for your zebra soap recipe. You will need to melt 150 grams of the Melt and Pour Soap Base in the microwave. Once your soap has been completely melted, you can add 7 grams of the scented oil. Mix this ingredient into the soap. After the blue layer has completely set up you are ready to pour in this next layer. Remember to spray the top with alcohol before moving on to the next step.

Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Creating and Pouring the Pink Layer

You will need to create the pink soap for this next layer. So, melt 200 grams of the yogurt mp soap.  Then, 10 grams of the fragrance to your melted soap. Also, mix in 5 drops of Neon Pink FUN Soap Colorant. After all this is mixed together, check that your previous layer has set up completely. Once it has you can move on to the next step.

Next, we are going to be pouring the pink layer onto your soap. This next layer will be slightly angled. You can use a similar height to the yellow layer and add the wedge to the opposite side as before. As soon as you get your desired angle, pour in this pink mixture. Then, spray the top with rubbing alcohol.

Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Mixing and Adding the Top Layer

Finally, we are going to be adding the last layer for the zebra print soap. You will need to melt 150 grams of the soap in a microwave. Then, incorporate 7 grams of the fragrance oil. Once everything has mixed together you should check to make sure that the pink layer has set up completely. If it has, then remove the object from underneath the mold and pour your soap. After the soap is in the mold, spray the soap to release any air bubbles. Now, you just need to wait for your last layer to set up and you will be ready to cut and use your soap!

Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Interesting Facts

Zebras are such majestic animals, but their beautiful stripes are just for looks. There are quite a few ideas as to how these unique patterns are beneficial. Firstly, the zebras are able to use each of their unique patterns in a group to confuse predators. Since these stripes help the zebras blend into their herd, they will even circle around young animals to create a defensive barrier. But, there are quite a few more reasons why this pattern is so important. If you would like to learn a bit more, then you should go to the article Plains Zebra by National Geographic
