In case you're completely clueless, people really love watermelon. 

Chop one up for a barbecue and they'll eat the whole thing. Kids will eat slice after slice of watermelon goodness, and if you incorporate watermelon into a recipe, you're an instant genius. 

They don't even need to taste it! People even love how watermelons look and are always using them in DIY projects.  

And we're about to take it one step further. Have you ever used watermelon to clean yourself?

Doesn't it look gorgeous? We put in enough soap dye to get a nice, vibrant pink, but you can do more or less depending on the shade you want.

We're going to use this spray with each step because it helps remove the bubbles from your setting soap. 

Then, put the soap aside to cool until it's solid again.

Next, pour it right on top of the hardened pink soap, adding just a 1/4 inch layer of white. Then, spray the soap with the alcohol solution and set it aside to cool again. 

We're going to dye the rest of the white soap with the green soap dye — and add a special effect.

Add enough dye to get to the color you want, mix it up, and pour another 1/4 inch layer on top of the white soap.

After you pour the green soap into each cup, add an extra drop of green soap dye and gently swirl it with a popsicle stick.

These darker swirls of color will make the green look more like watermelon rind.

Do one last spray with the alcohol solution and set it aside.

Let the soap become completely solid, and then remove it from the mold.
