Experiment 2: Creating Circles with the Divider

I have to squeal a bit over this soap because it turned out too cute! And exactly how I’d hoped.

For this one I took another tutorial the Bramble Berry had done and added my own little twist to it.  Here’s Bramble Berry’s tutorial: Vertical Sandalwood with a Twist.

I though it would be really cute to try and make a “pumpkin” shape in the vertical mold.   First I made the embeds I’d need: the stem and the leaf (I poured it in a PVC tube and sliced it in half).  Once I had those I then made my soap. I used a blend of vanilla EO, cinnamon EO, and BB’s Pumpkin Spice.  Oh man does this smell good!  I also used goat’s milk in the soap.  I split the batch in two and added orange mica to one and left the other natural.  I figured the vanilla and cinnamon would darken it up and I’d get a good contrast.  I also added a little cinnamon to that half.

Poured them in he mold and then twisted the middle divider to get the circle. From there I embedded the stem and leave.  It’s it just too cute!!!

HINT: So, getting the sides off the soap are a pain.  And with my still injured finger I was having a hard time so I tired something new.  I put my PVC molds in the oven and tried it with this and oh my word the sides practically fell off!  I stuck it in the over for 7-8min at 200.  Try it!

    Brilliant, Jennifer! I love how your pumpkin soaps turned out and the scent sounds fantastic. The embeds are nice touches, too. Thanks for reminding me about this technique – I saw Anne-Marie’s tutorial back in March but had forgotten about it. I’m looking for ideas for my new vertical mold, too, and this looks like a great project!

    That is the PERFECT soap! It’s like a little piece of art! I love the colors, too.

  3. Love your take on this classic design, especially with those colorful embeds!
