I love black and white…pictures, room color themes, clothes and of course in soap. There’s something about black and white that always seems to have this elegant and some what classic look to it. Every so often I do and black and white design soap. I had the desire to make a one of my winter soaps in black and white and the best choice seemed to be with Peppermint. It’s clear…it doesn’t accelerate trace…and it just “fit” to me with the fragrance.
I decided I wanted to do embeds. I made a whole bunch of different sized round batches of soap. I did an in the pot swirl with these making them predominantly black.
Then I embedded them in a solid white batch and saved a little extra soap to mix with black to decorate the top with:
Cutting them was fun! Each one is different. If I do this again I’ll probably make more embeds. I think there was plenty of room to add more.
I had some left over mix after embedding the the soap in this batch so I swirled it and poured it into a mold.
Cut it the next day and embedded them into another batch :D It was fun. Definitely different from the first batch, but I love it as well.
One of my favorite parts of cutting ITP swirl is seeing what I “see” in the swirls. This time around I found the face of a super hero (wearing a mask). Do you see it?
