And here are the bars from my first Faux Funnel pour. I am SO happy with them. I love when each bar is unique but beautiful. And this is the kind of design that will change as the bar is being used and new layers are revealed. Bonus!
These bars were cut not in the usual way, like a loaf of bread. They were cut horizontally. Here’s how that works:
Here’s the whole loaf, along with my miter box, wire cutter (a hacksaw with a guitar string instead of a blade) and my ruler. I marked the soap log so that I could cut chunks of the log the width of a bar of soap, about 2 and 1/8 inches.
Here is my first chunk. You can get a peek at what the bars would have looked like if I had cut them vertically. Not bad, but I wanted something different.
Next I flipped over the chunk, so that my cut surface is facing up, and sliced it down the middle.
And there you have them, two bars per chunk. These bars will be available on the Sirona Springs website in about 4 weeks. I’ve decided to call them “Fruitopia”. (Attention “Fruity Bits” fans: this is the same scent and will be replacing that bar in the collection.)
I can’t wait to try this with other color combinations. The bright colors really work for this fruity scent, but I can see using shades of the same color for a more subdued scent. Or just 2 contrasting colors for a really dramatic look. In any case, I’ll definitely be doing this again!
