Making soap is way too much fun. The sky is the limit when it comes to colors, mixes and scents! Why not try your hand at this ombre gem stone effect? Gems and crystals are very trendy right now and it's time to add them to your bathroom sink. Pop-in some glitter and you just made handwashing a whole lot more interesting.

Step 4) Add soap dye in the color of your choice to each dish. To create an ombre effect, I put 5-10 drops in the first dish, 4 drops in the second and 1 drop in the third. Mix well (and quickly) while the glycerin is still liquid.

Step 8) And finally, add your third shade of green. Let the entire thing harden until solid. If you are impatient (like me), you can speed up this process by placing the entire thing into your freezer.

Step 9) Once hardened completely, peel away the plastic water bottle.
