Upgrade an ordinary bar of soap into something special

You use an ordinary bar of soap every single day, so why not turn it into something special? You can do that by decorating soap with a favorite image. We've chosen a family photo for our soap image transfer, but you could also print out photos of pets, nature, cityscapes or any other image that makes you smile.
Once you've chosen your photo, you're ready for the easy part. Simply spray the image with the right coating, submerge it in water to separate out the layers, then press the top layer onto your soap. That's all that there is to it. You can easily use this idea to create last-minute personalized gifts for everyone you know.
