So, i've been dying to test out my true design skills and came up with these ever so cute soap bars!
TRUST ME i'm no artist, the flowers are just something I learned in nail tech school, lol.....

So it's just using the regular sqare bar mold from WSP and the designs are hand painted with a soap paint base that you mix equal parts of acrylic paint with, let it dry and then do a thin layer of base of it. It's tricky to work with so if you try it have some patience and k now Rome wasn't built in a day :-)
The other design is done with a cookie cutter, imagination and Mica from TKB :-)

Ooh, I'm not one for soaps most of the time but I have a feeling those painted soaps are going to be pretty popular  Wink They look great!

glad you all enjoy them and thanks for the kudo's!

Takocos..... i just imprint the cutter on the soap and take a very small amount and use a small crafters paint brush and detail the inside with the mica. It's a annoying thing to do but it's worth the look.
