WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO BEGIN:
4 ounces clear melt & pour soap
Vinyl Goldfish ( 1 or 2 per bag - your choice)
1 Boilable bag
1 Twist tie
1 drop of Crystal blue soap crafters liquid color (optional)
1/4 Teaspoon glitter (optional)
1/4 teaspoon fragrance (optional)
Use boilable bags so that the hot soap will not melt the bag. Put the bag inside of a glass or can (size you want finished product to be) and pull top of bag over edges of it and rubber band in place to hold. Melt soap and add scent, color and/or glitter if desired. (soap chunks can be melted in the microwave in a microwave safe dish. Put in microwave for 50 seconds, remove and gently swirl until all is melted. If you need to microwave it more, do so for only 10 seconds at a time.
Pour in about two inches of hot soap. Let set slightly (about 1 minute or so - a light skin will form on the top) , then place the goldfish in the soap & carefully press fish into soap slightly. Let it set completely.
Melt the remaining soap. Spray the soap in bag and goldfish with rubbing alcohol and then pour in the rest of the soap. This will help the two pours stay together.
When finished pouring, spray the top of soap with alcohol to remove some of the surface air bubbles.
When cool, blow some air into the bag and hold tightly as you tie the top with ribbon or a twist tie. Don't worry about all of the bubbles...just say the fish made them! lol
Let the kids enjoy!
