Lackadaisical - something about missing flowers?

« on: July 16, 2011 11:38:01 AM »

My little sister and I just finished making glycerin melty soaps. These were so much fun.

Sorry for the bad photos...









We used the glycerin goat's milk base and added essential oils fragrances and food coloring... They might make us turn green or purple when we bathe, but that seems like part of the fun. Oh yeah we used rubber embossing stamps in the mold.


EDIT: They do not turn you funny colors, yay! Also we made some more, some with the olive oil base this time and some with the goat's milk. They turned out pretty cool as well.

*Sorry for photo quality, taken with my phone

This is our peppermint & sandalwood soap (OO base), for my dad who uses peppermint oil everyday.



This one is lavender and has key in it... Not our best idea



This is our brilliant coffee soap. We made two so there would be no fighting over them and used the goat's milk base. It smells like coffee and vanilla and coffee makes an awesome exfoliant. <--- Chrome doesn't think that is a word.

Thanks! The cream colored one is gardenia and magnolia (showing my roots), the green is sandalwood and tuberose, and the purple is orchid bloom.

They all smell really nice, but I love the gardenia myself.

Thanks the stamps were fun, but getting them out of the mold was a bit tricky, as you can tell from the nicks and dents around the edges.

I was going to ask where you got the molds. Using the stamps is a GREAT idea!!

Michael's had the molds, but I've seen them at Hobby Lobby as well. They also sold soap embossing stamps, but we just used old stamps we had lying around.
