Take the soap base (which is readily available in the market) which you will need to melt in the microwave or in the broiler.

When the base is melting you can add coloring to it, to give your soap an exciting color. You can put in some mica in the melt but remember to spray and mica bubbles from the top of the soap. To add food coloring to the soap add only one drop at a time to have the desired coloring effect.
