Another, ‘oh yay I made that soap!’ soap today!! Thank you to Susan on the Facebook page for helping me name it – Peacock! As soon as I read her comments, I was like, “Oh YES! That’s a perfect name!” (Free bar for you when it’s ready, don’t let me forget!)
The scent is a blend of two fragrance oils that include: Pomegranate, a hint of citrus and fruity florals, yummy sweet vanilla bean and just a sprinkling of woodsy patchouli. Smells YUM! Definitely a female scent.
I’m loving the colours! The purple stuck (huzzah!) while the green lightened to a fantastic almost aqua colour. Works perfectly!
I had to try and be really careful not to over play the top portion as I wanted a more destinct pattern in the colours instead of a mixed blend of dull. Happy with the results, especially as it was a tug of war between getting it into the freezer straight away, and waiting for the batter to set up enough to form peaks.
Out of the freezer!
And… just cut!
Swirling is like a box of chocolates… you never know what you’re going to get! These are the ‘full on’ bars… lots of colour, lots of swirls.
The ying to the above’s yang is the ‘less is more’ approach… amazing that these came from the same batch of soap!
Finding a happy medium, the one on the right reminds me of deep sea creatures just swimming about. Very cool and random.
These are the ‘abstract art’ pieces. Only a couple came out so individual as these. I love them! The one on the left reminds me of a painting you would see in a modern, yet cool house.
And of course no swirling batch is complete without the animal pieces!! The right ‘I’m an owl in your soap’ is as clear as day. The left, I immediately saw a swan. Then my daughter came up and gasped, ‘Oh no mum!! The snake is about to eat the swan, why did you do that?!” As we were exploring the picture within, we also spotted a lizard approaching from above to see what was going on.
I let my mind wander to the thought of opening a soap art gallery. How cool would it be to frame these soaps, hang them on a wall and show off all the different pictures that created themselves…
Am very interested in hearing feedback on the scent combination with these bars as I’m considering making them part of the permanent line…
