Hey, loves!  It's been a while since I posted anything new (the life! it explodes!).  But I've been experimenting a bit:


I'm super excited about this one!  It's my "A Midsummer Night's Dream" soap.  Jasmine-scented, very warm and sexy.  (Seriously.  So excited.  This is probably the most technically difficult soap I've done, and I love love love the way it came out.)


Tilted soap!  Shabow!  ("Sense & Sensibility."  It's geranium & chamomile--v. delicate & wildflowery.)


Layered swirls!  Whee!  This un's "Romeo and Juliet"--smells like roses and blood (orange).


Aaaand look who put on her big girl pants and did a batch of HP:


With beer.  Because I'm awesome.  (Patchouli, sandalwood & orange, because that combination is a winner.)


Thanks for looking!

Thanks, everybody!  <3

Eclectic: I (generally) do CP sans OP.  For the layered soaps, I poured, let sit several hours, then came back and made the second layer (actually did these two layered babies at the same time, dividing each batch between the two molds).  Buuuuut I think OP would be way quicker and sounds brilliant!  Lemme know if it works for you--I definitely want to give it a try.

I've also done layers in regular ol' CP without letting them cool in between, and it comes out okay if you pour slowly, gently, and close to the mold.  It doesn't look quite as clean, though.

Thanks!  A friend of mine saw it and immediately asked for a soap version of "Starry Night."  Maybe someday....
