Apples n’ Oak Embeds

I like to create designs with embeds (which translates to: I like to create extra work for myself when making soap). :D

When I got the Apples n’ Oak fragrance I thought it’d be cool to try and create an apple inside a loaf. Thought about it a bit and decided I could create the apples with PVC tubes.

I poured a batch of green soap into a 1/2″ tube. Then in one of my loaf molds poured a flat batch of brown which I then cut into stems.

Stems!

In a larger PVC tube I pour red for the apple.

The round red soaps for the apples and the leafs (one cut, one not yet). I cut the small green tube soap in half to create a half circle for the leaf.

The base loaf I swirled pink and white, but it ended up with the white mixing in a bit more than planned and lightening up the pink…I actually really like it (even if it wasn’t how I’d planned for it to turn out).

Apples in my soap!

I had a little red left over so I poured it into one of my cube molds from Bramble Berry. It actually made for a really cool abstract apple that I almost like more than the round apples!

The “Abstract Apples” :)

I had a little extra green and it went in with some of the red soap hence this funky looking apple!

Green apple anyone?

    Very Cool! How do you get your soap to release from the PVC? Freeze it? BTW..I like the ‘abstract apples’ the best! :)

    I put my PVC in the oven at 200 for about 8-9 minutes and then it usually comes out pretty easily. :)
