My first batch of  HPOP (Oven Process) soap! I made the base soap from Mango Butter, Coconut Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Autumn Woods Fragrance (and of course, lye and water). Before I made the soap, I poured colored and scented MP soap onto backing sheets. I cut out leaf shapes in three different colors and set them aside. When the soap was finished cooking, and no longer caustic I added my fragrance and poured it into the log mold. Once it cooled down a bit, I stuck my little MP leaves in the top!

Here are the logs Smiley



And here are the bars after being cut!

Those are really stunning, I've never seen anything like that before, great job!
On a silly note, I can't help wondering if the leaves would poke you when you used it. Grin Yeah, that's just how my brain works.

LOL! I wondered the very same thing, but so far it's been pretty tame. The leaves actually bend over pretty easily, so when you get down to washing they don't interfere. Since I cut them very thin, they behave.  Grin
