Mermaid Soaps

I don’t know what made me want to make these. I’m sure I saw someone post one and it probably caught my fancy and I thought they’d be fun to make.  Whatever the reason, I was browsing online looking for a mold and came across the mermaid tail molds…and next thing I know I’m making mermaid tails.

I spent a couple days sketching ideas for how I wanted to make the mermaids and ultimately had three designs I wanted to try and a couple that were a variation of the original designs.  Some of these turned out great others I really didn’t like. Ultimately there were two designs I’ve decided to go with moving forward.

Here’s a peak at the process and the trial and errors of making mermaid soaps.  It’s safe to say I got a little obsessed with these fellas.  They just make me smile and I can’t help but want to make more and more!

Look at these tails!

Design 1: Swimming in the Ocean (rectangle)

I used multiple techniques for these and I really liked them.  It’s one of the designs I’m going with.

Design 2: Color base and Oval Mold

First off, the color morphed and I really hate the color it became.  Second, the fragrance accelerated and I couldn’t get the swirl on the top I wanted.  Third, I just didn’t like the appearance or shape at all.

Design 3: Piping Ocean Foam

I think if I had a bigger rectangular mold these would have worked better, but there just wasn’t enough space for everything to work. Too much of the tail got covered.

Design 4: The Beach and Ocean

I loved the beach look of these. They’re more work to make and definitely a bit of a pain to do the sand (though I love the end result).  These and Design 1 are my two favs!

 

Just Tails

Then I created little three packs of just tails.  I love the bars, but I also could stare at the tails all day long!And I had fun with the packaging!  The mermaid “sayings” on the back just make me smile!
