Ducks in a Row Tutorial

If you have kids that need a little encouragement when it comes to washing, this bar might just do the trick. What's not to love? Those ducks are too cute. 

This tutorial is courtesy of Bramble Berry's previous retail store, posted here with permission! And it still a great project to make!

Here's what you need:


Chopping Board
Microwave safe jugs to melt the soap
Spatula or spoon


To begin, melt about a cup of clear base and colour with some Blueberry Mica.  Pour a thin layer of soap in five or six squares. Melt a quarter of a cup of base and colour with more Blueberry Mica to a darker shade of blue. Pour a thin layer in two or three other squares.  Slice these into strips when hardened. 

Melt about 2 cups of clear base, add scent and teensy tiny pinch of Seafoam Mica to add shimmer to the "watery" look.  Pour a thin layer in six squares. Spray rubbing alcohol on both the layer and the cut soap strips and start throwing in those cut strips in with the clear/green soap.  It doesn't have to be perfect, and I like have random pieces sticking out the top. The dark adds some depth and contrast, but most of the strips are blue. Keep filling with the clear/green soap until you've filled the cavity about 1cm from the top. 

Now you can add the ducky! Spray its bottom with rubbing alcohol so it will stick well to the wet soap. You might have to hold it in place as the soap cools and hardens, keeping ducky in place. Pour a touch more clear/green soap on the surface to really glue the duck in. Let harden, and that's it!
