What a lovely mold! I quite like the sound of the "flavors" you added too. I love soap things that smell like foods and sweets.

Thanks for the lovely comments everyone! Smiley

This made me smile - because I have a thing about both soap and cameos, *and* today I made melt and pour soap for the first time ever too, *and* I had decided to buy this very cameo mould from the company I got the m&p stuff from! Great minds think alike :-)

creepy thing is: you possibly won't believe this but I read a bit here and there on craftster a day or two ago and saw a comment posted by you and instantly loved your signature. So I "stole it" and used it for my ICQ status the day I made the soap!  Shocked
And really the same mould? Today I tried the single rose and the vase aaand the cameo bottom without cameo. I like them too, but the cameo is my favourite Wink I'd love to see your creations! When you upload them, could you perhaps send me the link or post it in here? That'd be nice!

back to topic: I just made another one. I used white vanilla for the top again, but this time I coloured the bottom part with cinnamon. Turned out great and added a good smell even though I didn't use very much cinnamon! Sadly in my town there is no shop where I could purchase fragrance oils. I think it's generally difficult to get for example cookie scented or caramel scented oil which you can use for soap making in germany. It's a pity! 


And I have to say: I do have a general cameo obsession. I love cameos on pill boxes, jewelry, soaps of course... I don't know why, but that is the way it is!  Grin

To me they are a timeless, classic feminine image. I'm a pretty masculine dresser and person, but I have a cameo necklace that makes me feel like prim, proper Victorian lady! (in my docs and ripped jeans... whatever it takes, right??  Grin)

ETA: Oh, and I love, love the cinnamon one. It reminds me of some stone, but I can't think of the name...

I think I know which stone you're thinking of, but I can't think of the name either...

Oh man that is going to drive me nuts! Unfortunately I think doing a Google search for "brown speckled stone" wouldn't be much help, either!  Cheesy

Yeah, I was thinking that would make a cool necklace, too . . . maybe not with soap, lol.  But very pretty . . . wow, the macrame stuff today is like wigging me out . . . I feel like I'm in a 70's love shack, lol Wink
