How to do it

Part 1

Step 1

Open the plastic bag and cuff the top enough so that the bag will stand on its own.

Step 2

Place four ounces of solid clear glycerin soap in a heat-resistant measuring cup, and melt in a double-boiler or microwave.

Step 3

Pour half the melted soap into the bag. Spray with alcohol until bubbles disappear. Allow to cool and harden for about one hour.

Step 4

Re-melt remaining soap. Pour a small amount of melted soap on top of the cooled soap in bag. Spray with alcohol. Position fish in melted soap, and let set 15 minutes to lock into place.

Step 5

Pour the remaining soap over fish. Spray with alcohol. Gather bag above soap and pinch with clothespin. Allow soap to cool for 15 minutes.

Step 6

Remove clothespin and tie with a ribbon threaded with a gift tag.
