1  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Milk Soap on: August 05, 2011 05:00:43 PM
I love making and using cold process milk soap because milk can boost creamy lather and nourish my really dry skin.  I usually use between coconut milk and fresh cow milk depending on what I have in hand.  I rarely make 100% milk (meaning no water) soap because for some reason 50% of the time I do make I failed.  About 3 weeks ago I don't know what got into me, I attempted 100% milk soap again, and I failed... double size batch too.  It was late at night, I was tired and cranky.  I had to roll into plan B and hot process it to save the whole pot.  It's a good save at least.
I split it into 2, one is unscented and uncolored, naked soap.

The other one is scented with Honey Almond EO blend and colored with oatmeal flour and cocoa powder.

Then look at the lather going!


Days later, I redeemed myself, make other batches of milk soap the way I usually do, half water half milk.  There were no disaster, no need to go plan B, plain smooth and beautiful.

2  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Soap or cake?! on: July 12, 2011 04:52:58 PM
I love making soap and so when it's my DH's birthday I thought I should make a cake, a soap cake! 
I made the mini cakes a week ahead of time so they have time to harden up a little and turn brown like I planned.  Then I whipped up a batch of soap to thick, and started icing them.

Then I color the rest orange to pipe them.

OMG the orange turned very neon! Shocked  Question marks in my head!  Thank God it mellowed out to what I expected.

Consider it's my first time making cake of any kind, this is not too bad at all! Grin
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Gold Leaf Necklace on: July 06, 2011 03:18:52 PM
I'm a newbie, want to say hi!
So I made this necklace awhile back, one of my favorite pieces.  It's simple and goes with any outfit, formal or casual.  I really like the vintage looking gold leaf.  I used blush color freshwater pearls, light citrine, amber, and turquoise.  I wired them with goldfilled wire and little sections of copper links at the lobster claw.
4  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / U2 inspired soap project on: July 05, 2011 12:42:33 PM
Just want to say hi to everyone!  I'm a Craftster newbie!  I want to show you guys my U2 inspired Melt & Pour soap.

I went to U2 concert in June, LOVE IT!!!  The neon light, the black Bono outfit, the white from Adam (the base player) and his colorful base instruments, City of Blinding Lights, Vertigo, Mysterious Way, Bloody Sunday, Moments of Surrender...  So many songs!  Here's my U2 Soap, she really moves in a mysterious way!  It is scented with Blackberry Amber, fruity yet sensual.

I used white base and alternating the pour with clear base that colored with black and red mica:


Then I changed to copper mica, like the changing stage lights:


Kept on piling up, last change to lavender mica:


I let it cool down and this is the slab I got right side up:


I cut them into bars, every bar is unique and different and no repeat!



Since I'm new, I can't directly upload photos...  Sad  I have to use links, sorry to have you guys click so many times.  I hope you enjoy it!

How do you like it?
