Once you have a good thick trace, pour or spoon the batter into the mold. Level out and tap the sides of the mold to make sure the soap gets into all the corners.
Use a spoon to make a wave pattern on the top of the soap and set aside for 24 hours to harden. Then, release the soap from the mold and cut into slices. Although the soap should no longer be very caustic, it will still be too harsh on the skin so you will need to cure it for around 4 weeks before using.
