Pumpkin!

September 23, 2014

I have two pumpkin soaps: Pumpkin Spice and Pumpkin Cheesecake.  I had a small bottle of pumpkin spice and decided to make a small batch.  I LOVE this one. I wanted to do an orange and black soap. I love the colors together.  This one didn’t disappoint.

The Pumpkin Cheesecake on the other hand…SIGH!  I knew the vanilla content was high in this soap and would darken all the colors.  I just didn’t expect it to be as extreme as it was.  There’s very little definition between the elements in this soap.  Just looks like a dark bar.  I was going for a pumpkin embedded in the soap.  It definitely SMELLS amazing.  It was an extremely popular soap last year.  Hopefully people will still love it because it’s scent and forgive it’s rather unappealing look.

Pumpkin Spice

Love how the top came out.  Half is glitter and the other half is a mica swirl.  Such fun!

Orange & Cranberry

April 1, 2014

Fragrance: Freshly squeezed oranges kissed with tart cranberry.

Technique: Embeds

I was less than pleased with this soap.  It just didn’t quite work the way I wanted.  I was playing around with a new way to do embeds.  I made a bunch of round embeds to start.

Then I cut them in half or left them whole and placed them throughout the loaf.

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.
