Knead two blocks of white FIMO soft and roll them out using the acrylic roller to create an approximately 0.5 cm thick oval.
Cut out a few leaves using the leaf shaped FIMO cutter. Think of an imaginary branch, along which you place the leaves.
Now remove the cut-out leaves.
Knead half a block of jade green FIMO soft and roll it out with the acrylic roller to also approximately 0.5 cm thick as well.
Now cut out the same number of leaves with the leaf shaped FIMO cutter.
Put the green leaves into the cut-out spots of the white FIMO plate. Ideally, there should be no large gaps.
Now roll with the acrylic roller and gently apply pressure until the gaps close and the leaves connect with the white plate. It is not a problem if the shape of the leaves change. Doing this creates a more natural look.
Now use a shashlik skewer to draw lines wherever you want the branch to run along. Draw an extra line for a short branch where the berries should sit. Make three holes with a thin straw. Excess water can drain through these holes, to prevent liquid from collecting in the soap dish.
Now form a soap dish by folding up the edges. Place your soap dish on a baking tray with baking paper and harden it at 110° C / 230° F for 30 minutes.
Your soap dish is ready!
