I ordered another 16-bar slab mold from pawpawswoodcrafts!
Sadly, it did not arrive in time for my weekend soap rumpus, but it should be waiting at the Pony Express headquarters this afternoon.
Living in the boonies has a lot of perks, but 1 hour of postal service on Saturdays takes some getting used to.
I did make a batch of Baker Street in the slab mold, though.
Ready to cut:
A finished bar:
I tried something different with Island Time, but I’ll probably go back to the embedded sun motif.
The colors are spot on, though, and it was much easier to use the oxides than to have to make three separate batches.
And say “Hello” to Calico Jack, my first five color swirl!!!
I used four oxides – red, brown, green and yellow, plus titanium dioxide.
Calico Jack has a very piratical combination of bay rum, lime and tobacco. Arr!
Since nothing can follow a five color swirl, here’s the plainest soap I made all weekend: Pink Lemonade.
Just titanium dioxide to bring the brick red oxide into line. But the scent of fresh, sweet lemons is simply mouth-watering.
