This year we’re doing something a little different here at The Dancing Soap Dish.
We have set ourselves a challenge!
A mosaic soap challenge to be exact. Yes we have challenged ourselves to come up with a new and unique mosaic soap design every month for the entire year.

All About the 2023 Mosaic Soap Challenge
If you are familiar with my work, you might have noticed that I enjoy using unconventional tools in my soapmaking projects.
I like to borrow techniques and equipment from other crafts and hobbies.
Late last year I stumbled across this mosaic tile silicone mould.
Now it is supposed to be used for resin projects, but I had a major lightbulb moment, and my mind was instantly flooded with a tonne of amazing mosaic soap designs.
I was hooked.
Last Christmas I made a couple of festive mosaic soap designs and since then the ideas for different mosaic soap designs have not stopped flowing.
So I’m going to make as many mosaic soap designs as I can this year and show you a few different techniques also.
I want to show you how much fun making mosaic soap can be.
Mosaic Soap Projects
January – Basic Mosaic Soap Bars
This is a basic beginners project showing the ‘grout surround’ mosaic soap method which consists of a simple mosaic picture or pattern laid out on a soap ‘base’, and then surrounded by white ‘soap grout’.
We have chosen two simple floral designs and two simple geometric designs using four different colours.
We used Stephenson Crystal WSLES & SLS Free (white) for the base and grout, and a ratio of 80/20 Stephenson Crystal SLES & SLS Free (clear) and Stephenson Crystal WSLES & SLS Free (white) for the mosaic tiles.
The Basic Mosaic Soap video tutorial is available for viewing on YouTube.
