Clean & Sanitize your work area and all of your packaging materials. It is suggested that you wear gloves, protective clothing, and a hair net while preparing this recipe.

Step 1: Prepare the Ark:  In your microwave safe glass container, weigh out and melt 600 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 2: In one of your bowls weigh out 5 grams of olive leaf powder and 16 grams Vegetable Glycerin.  Stir this well with a fork.  Set aside. 

Step 3:  Next, add 4 drops FUN Soap Colorant- Brown Oxide and 2 drops FUN Soap Colorant- Orange Oxide to the melted soap.  Mix well.  Then, add your olive leaf mixture and 25 grams God's Love Fragrance Oil; stir well.  Once incorporated, fill (1) cavity of your silicone loaf soap mold.  Spritz the loaf with alcohol.  Allow to fully set up. 

Step 4:  With some of the remaining melted soap, fill (4) brownie bite cavities.  Spritz the bites with alcohol.  Allow to fully set up. 

Step 5:  There will still be a few grams of melted soap left over still.  Simply, pour 2 small, thin lines about 1" long on a flat surface.  Spritz with alcohol.  Then, add 1 drop Fun Soap Colorant- Kelly Green to the soap bowl.  Stir.  While the soap is still liquid, make a few v shapes over the brown lines.  This will be your olive branch for the dove. 

Step 6: When all the soap has finished setting up; using your thumbs, apply gentle pressure to the mold cavities. When the soap releases, trim off any soap over pours.  Set aside.  When the olive branch is set up, gently ease this up and set aside.

Step 7: Prepare the Doves:  In your microwave safe glass container, weigh out and melt 30 grams of Goat's Milk Melt and Pour Soap .

Step 8:  Next, add 1 gram of God's Love fragrance oil; stir well. Once incorporated, fill  (2) of the dove cavities in  your dove and cupid mold.  Spritz with alcohol.  Allow this to fully set up, then remove them from the mold and set aside.

Step 9:  Prepare the Roof and Sides: In your microwave safe glass container, weigh out and melt 100 grams of Goat's Milk  Melt and Pour Soap.

Step 10:  Next, add 4 drops FUN Soap Colorant- Red Oxide.  Stir.  Then, add 4 grams God's Love Fragrance Oil to the melted soap. Mix well.

Step 11:  Once fully incorporated, pour this into your Square Loaf Mold.  Spritz with alcohol.  Allow this to full set up.

Step 12:  Once the red soap has hardened, gently pop this out of the mold and set aside.

Step 13:  Assembly:  Note: 1 Loaf Soap Makes 2 Arks After this Step: Using a cutting board and sharp knife, slice the brown loaf  in half.  Then, starting with one of the halves, cut an angular slice to match the angle  of the other side.  Repeat with the second half.   Set aside. 

Step 14:  Next, get the thin red layer of soap and measure out the wider portion of the brown half to it.  Using your pencil make a mark on the red soap.  Then, using a ruler measure out 1/2" width from your mark and slice the soap.  Repeat with all for sides.  Then, repeat for second brown half.  Set all of this aside. Also, measure out the and cut the red soap to the measurements of the wider portion of the brownie bites.  You will need a total of 4 of these square shapes for the roof of the ark.

 Step 15:  Using a pencil, score all 4 pieces of the red square soaps to resemble roof shingles.  Set aside.

Step 16:  Make the soap adhesive:  Weigh out and melt 54 grams of Goat's Milk Melt and Pour Soap.  While the soap is melting, weigh out 28 grams of Vegetable Glycerin, 15 grams of Imagine Base and 2 drops FUN soap colorant- Brown Oxide.  Once the soap has melted, add these three ingredients, and whip using a hand held mixer.   

Step 17:  Once you have fluffy mixture, take one of your long red pieces and dip the underside into the fluffy soap.  Then, place the red piece onto the top edge of one of the brown half loaves.  Hold this there for a few seconds.  Then repeat with other 3 sides.  Also repeat for second brown loaf half. 

Step 18:  Next, take 1 brownie bite and place the wider end into the fluff.  Then, grab a second brownie bit and stack  them together, allowing the foam to adhere them.  Set this aside.  Repeat with remaining brownie bites. 

Step 19:  Using a spoon, put a small amount of fluff on top of the stacked brownie bites.  Then, place two of the red roof pieces (in a v shape) into the fluff on the stacked brownie bites.  Hold.  Once roof adheres, repeat with second stack. 

Step 20:  Now, dip the tip of your soap olive branch into the fluff, then quickly place the olive leaf behind one of your doves.  Hold.  Then, repeat with second olive leaf and dove.  Set aside. 

Step 21: Place a small amount of soap fluff in the center of your brown soap loaf half.  Then, place your stacked brownie bites onto this.  Repeat with second brown soap loaf half.  Set aside.

Step 22: Making the Animals:  Weigh out and melt 150 grams of diamond clear melt and pour soap.  Once completely melted, add 6 grams God's Love fragrance oil.  Stir.  Then divide your soap mixture into 4 bowls.  Assign each bowl a FUN Colorant and using 5 drops of each soap colorant, color the bowls.  Then, stir. 

Step 23:  Quickly fill the animals in the zoo animals mold with your variously colored soaps.  Spritz with alcohol and allow to fully set up.  Once set up, remove soap from mold.  Depending on how many animals you are putting in  the ark, you may need to fill the zoo animals mold a second time. 

Step 24:  Remelt and rewhip your soap fluff.  Then, dip the flat end of each animal into the fluff and hold it in place on the red edge of the brown loaf half.  Once the animal is in place, repeat with other animals until both halves are filled with zoo animals. 

Step 25: Once all animals are in place, scoop several spoonfuls of fluff into a Ziploc bag.  Cut one of the bottom edges of the Ziploc bag and fill the open area of the ark between the animals on the ark house.  You want to fill this portion completely covering the bottom brownie bite in the stack.  Filling this whole area with fluff is what allows your Noah's Ark Soap to float.  Be generous. 

Step 26:  Finally, place the underside of the doves into the soap fluff.  Then, gently place the dove onto the top of the ark house. 

Your Floating Noah's Ark Soap is now ready to use.  Enjoy!
