Goldfish Prize

No Carnival is complete without a few fish, right? Well, I knew better then giving away real fish so I decided to make soapie fish. I picked up some glycerin soap that can be quickly melted in the microwave, a few clear plastic bags, and some plastic fish. (Mine happen to be clown fish, Marlin from Nemo to be exact. I scored them off ebay..) First I chopped up my soap and melted it in the microwave, it works best if you do this in a container with a pour spot on it. Pour the melted soap into the baggies, I only filled them 1/4 of the way. Then quickly poke a fish down into the melted soap. Work quickly, this soap started to set quite quickly! I then scrunched the bags closed and sealed them with a twist tie. Then, offer your friends a fish!
