Soap Design

Whew. It’s been a busy couple of days of making soap: two kinds going right into the shop and three other batches with new designs that I’m trying out.

This soap will turn even browner as it cures. With that gold mica sprinkled on top and layered in the middle, I’m hoping to get an exotic, ancient look.

And this one has a very floral scent, with larkspur petals sprinkled on top and inside. Rumor has it that larkspur petals keep their pretty blue color in soap. Most botanicals turn brown eventually. We shall see.

The third trial has slices of a cured soap embedded in a new batch. I’m testing the design as well whether the older, harder soap will “stay” in the new soap.

I’ll post pictures of the bars once I cut them.
