Pink Sangria

March 28, 2014

Fragrance: A refreshing combination of zesty mandarin, raspberry , fresh blueberry and layered sweet sugar crystals..

Technique: Layering Embeds

This technique was really easy and I was surprised at how much I liked the final soap.  I just made a small batch of black and white soap and cut it up in thin slices. Then I made a new batch and embedded the slices into it.

Every time I’ve made beer soap the soap has gotten really dark, so this time I decided to work with it and do a white stamp on top.  And of course this time it didn’t get any darker than what you see in the picture :P …guess that’s how it works sometimes.

And despite trying to get the bottle to photograph I couldn’t get my camera to focus :(


Strawberry Daiquiri

March 3, 2014

This soap was a part of the few batches I made when I was experimenting with Dusted Mica Embeds. I was attempting a blend of multiple techniques here:

  • dusted embeds
  • embeds
  • and drop swirl

What I wasn’t planning on was the fragrance thickening up the soap.  It was awful, but I just didn’t have enough time to do everything so as I got to the drops it was getting too thick so it’s not as wispy as I’d like, but it’s still a cool looking soap.
