Night Skyline - M&P embeds a tutorial

I originally got this technique from a book I bought called Soapylove. You can see my first attempt at it here. This was one of the soaps used with the team building exercise for Grindrod. You can see the other soap they made here.

Embeds (31)

You will need:
Clear soap base 
Black Oxide 
Flash Gold Mica 
IPA 
Fragrance oil 
Any small mould you want to use
Cookie cutters or a craft knife to cut our your shapes
Microwave jugs

How to:
Melt some clear soap base, enough to create your buildings and moon. I think the moon should have been white not yellow but it still looks good.
Separate the soap into smaller containers and mix your colours
Black oxide for the buildings
Flash Gold mica or titanium di oxide for the moon
Pour a thin layer of each colour into your moulds, or just onto a marble counter top. These will be used to cut out your embeds.

Once all your pieces are cut out place them in your mould to see that they will fit comfortably
Remove the pieces and place them facing up
Now make sure you have melted more clear soap base ready for the next step
Spray all your soap embeds with IPA 
Pour a small layer of clear soap into your mould and quickly place your embeds FACE DOWN into the soap and spritz with IPA 

Embeds (31)

Wait for about 40 minutes or until the soap is cold to the touch
To release from the mould break the airlock by squeezing the corners together gently.
If the soap does not pop out easily then leave it for a while longer

There you have it embed skyline soap
