More Inspiration: Talented Soapmakers

This may be a biased observation, but I contend that the best thing about the invention of blogs is the ability to look at pictures of beautiful handmade soap made all over the world. We soapmakers like to call it “soap porn”, those photos that just make you stare and sigh and fantasize (about making soap, of course).

One such talented soapmaker is Omar Lopez of pasito a pasito.  I love his modern style and the way he constructs his soaps. You must browse his blog. (It is written in Spanish; I just use Google translate. But the photos need no translation.)

I don’t know if inspiration is like this for everyone, but when I see something that intrigues me, I can’t stop thinking about it. It’s what I think about in that quiet time just before getting out of bed in the morning. Until I finally get the time to try and make the inspiration a reality. I finally found made some time recently.

Here is my latest, inspired by these soaps by Omar Lopez:

Scented with a floral/sandalwood blend

And talk about synchronicity: as Omar was blogging about his latest Mondrian-inspired soap, I was cleaning up this batch, inspired by the same thing!

Scented with a blend of lemongrass, citrus and mint

Look for these online in a few weeks!

  1. Beautiful, Ruth! I love the concentric colored circles you did in the floral bar. They look like little olives – reminds me of a martini! 😀

    And Omar’s stuff is outstanding – very inspiring.

  2. Wow, you did great! I just discovered Omar’s blog recently as well, and I agree – very inspiring! Great shapes and designs. I never would have thought to put a hole in the soap (on purpose, anyway). 🙂
