very cute! you could also make a brick black and cut out the logo and then poor yellow soap over it and do an embedded look Smiley but the foam gives it a really fun look!

This is a fantastic idea! I wonder if by just mixing all of the colors together you'd eventually get a dark black enough soap color? (did that sentence even make sense? lol)

You can actually make the bat out of soap, quite easily, too.

Having said that, it IS possible to achieve black color in soap, but the amount of pigment you need is pretty ridiculous. Unless you're doing a small, tiny piece (like, say, a bat), it's not worth it. I made black soap in the past and I swear it cut back on the lather AND what lather there was was grey. Depending on what you're going for, that either cool or not so much. Cheesy

Very cute, I may have to make some for my nephews!

FYI~another way to deal with annoying bubbles in MP is to lightly spray the surface with rubbing alcohol after you pour it.

Really? That is a fantastic tip, thank you! As you can see, my experience with soapmaking is pretty basic. That's an awesome little nugget of info to store away for next time Smiley I've gotta make the second bar tonight so maybe I'll give that a try if I can find a spray bottle to put the rubbing alcohol in. Who would've thunkit? Awesome!

Thanks!

Just thought I'd post a pic of the final Batman soap/cloth bath set after packaging it up in a basket for my friend Michelle's birthday. We gave her the gift today when we went out to celebrate, and it was a big hit! Thanks for the suggestions and tips in your comments; I've modified the instructions to throw in the tips about using a spray bottle of rubbing alcohol since it's so helpful! Thank you Smiley
