It took me forever to figure out a design for pink lemonade. I finally nailed it, I think this looks amazing in person, the picture doesn't do it justice.

This recipe makes 2 to 3 -9" spheres

Dry ingredients:
  1 cup baking soda (sodium bicarbonate)
  cup citric acid (sifted or finely ground)
  cup corn starch
  dry herbs or flowers (optional)

Wet ingredients:
  2 tablespoons sweet almond oil
    tablespoon water
  - 1 teaspoon of essential or fragrance oil
  colorant (optional), iron oxides, FD&C colors or mica powders

3-dimensional mold or deep dish style molds
squirt bottle with witch hazel or water
~    ~    ~    ~    ~    ~    ~    ~    ~    ~    ~   

Mix all the dry ingredients together and set aside.  Mix the wet ingredients in an old jar with a lid so they can be shaken well.  Slowly pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix with your hands.  The citric acid my start to fizz, so pour slowly and work the liquid in as you go.  The mixture should be damp enough to hold together.  If needed, mist with witch hazel or water.  Work fast to press the mixture into the molds.  If you're using a 2-part sphere, fill each side and then press together.   Let bombs dry in the mold for a few hours.  Larger spheres may need more drying time.  Remove from mold and let dry for 1 week before use.  Cover with tissue paper and store in a dry place.

I use this recipe from http://www.pvsoap.com/  I think it works great. And the design is all imagination.
