Like a plump and juicy apricot in the morning sun, this two-colour slide pour CP soap has a perfectly balanced fruity-floral scent, with a beautiful, summery colour combination. 



  • The usual Cold Process Soaping equipment including safety goggles and gloves
  • 2 Bulldog Clips
  • Plastic or ceramic vessel to hold the mould (filled with soap) on an angle
  • 2 Spatulas
  • Mini mixer or milk frother for mixing colours - Optional
  • 2 Long Spout Pouring Jugs

  • Thermometer - Optional but useful

Colour Preparation:

  • Remove 2 tablespoons of premixed oils from the allocation and combine this with 4g of Tangelo Mica in a small cup
  • Mix manually using a stirrer and then a mini mixer or milk frother

Mould Preparation:

  • Assemble the column mould, and for extra security, use 2 bulldog clips to secure the seals.
  • Place the mould into a pail (or other container) so that it sits on an angle as shown below.


If you are a beginner, we recommend you make a few batches before attempting this soap so that you know what to expect.  For how to make soap from Scratch, please see our Cold Process Soapmaking Instructions.  You can also watch Soap Queen's YouTube Series on Cold Process Soapmaking. 



Set out all the equipment and ingredients

Prepare the soap as usual making sure to check the temperature of the oils
and lye water; it should be around 20 - 30°C. Bring the soap to a VERY light trace.
Add 40g of fragrance oil and stir well to combine before pouring 620g of soap into one jug and 500g into the other.
Now add half a teaspoon of Yellow Liquid Pigment Dispersion to the fuller of the the two
jugs and the Tangelo Mica solution to the remaing jug.

Mix the colourants in thoroughly by hand using a spatula

Set up the mould ready for the first pour

Begin by pouring the yellow batter to the count of 7 followed by the orange batter to the count of 6

Counting speed may vary so insure each layer reaches the other side of the mould before alternating jugs

Continue to alternate jugs in this way until the mould is almost full

Once the mould is almost full, carefully stand it up in the pail

Continue pouring until the mould is filled to the brim

Once it has saponified, remove the bulldog clips and leave
in the mould for several days to a week before attempting to unmould.
