Step 1:  Prepare the lye solution.  Using a scale, weigh your distilled water.  Slowly, add the sodium hydroxide and mix carefully.  Note: Always add the lye to your water.  Never add your water to the lye.  Set aside and allow the solution to cool.
Step 2:  Prepare your oils.  Weigh out and melt the soaping oils listed above.  Allow to cool.
Step 3:  Now, get your colors ready.  You will need 3 bowls.  In the first bowl, place the Jailhouse Red FUN Soap Colorant.  In bowl two,  add the FUN Soap Colorant Neon Yellow.  In bowl three, add the Titanium Dioxide and a small amount of oil.  Mix well and be sure to remove any clumps.  Set these aside for the moment.
Step 4: Allow both the lye solution and the oils to drop to around 72 degrees.  Then, use a stick blender to emulsify.
Step 5:  Now, add the fragrance oil.  Stir the fragrance oil to blend it with the soap batter.
Step 6:  Separate your soap batter, into three equal portions, adding one of the portions to each of the bowls containing the colorants.  Blend the contents of each bowl to incorporate the colorant.
Step 7:  When your batter is at a light trace, pour a few ounces of the yellow soap batter into a separate bowl, we will use this to top the soap.  Also, pour a small amount of the white soap batter into another bowl.  We will also use this to top the soap.
Step 8:  Pour a thin line of the yellow soap batter right down the center of the mold.  Next, pour a thin line of the white soap batter directly on top of the yellow line.  Finally, pour an orange line in the same manner.  Repeat this process until you have used all of the soap batter.
Step 9:  At this time you will need your decorating bags.  Add decorating tips to each bag.  You will also need the soap batter you set aside earlier.  Place the yellow soap batter in one bag and the white in the other bag.  You will want to sure the batter is at a frosting-like consistency when you add it to the bags.
Step 11:  Pipe one row of white soap batter dollops directly down the center of the loaf.  Then, pipe one row of yellow on the right side of the white and one on the left side of the white.
Step 12: Let the soap set up before removing it from the mold.  Slice the soap using the mitre box and cutter.  Once it has cured, your soap is ready to use.
