A Super Speical New Soap!
I made something new today. I made a beautiful shaped soap, a Sea Urchin! It's my same old fashion, 100% veggie, made from scratch soap, scented with my Sea Mist fragrance and slightly swirled with blue. I added a bit of opalescent mica, brushed on after it was out of the mold, to the "bumps" on the Sea Urchin to make it extra pretty.
I'm not sure about this soap. It is beautiful and while I am excited to do something new, this soap needs some tweaking. Right now it is not an efficient way to produce a lot of soap. I can only make 1 at a time, it takes a lot of effort to get it out of the mold and when it did come out, it wasn't perfect (some of the bumpy designs were left behind in the mold). It will take some work and will need some special packaging, but I have a feeling that more than a few of you are going to really like it.
What are your thoughts?
