...the soap gazes also into you?



I made this cold process pumpkin spice soap for Halloween and decided to play with color.  I was hoping for something vaguely macabre and evocative-of-Halloween-ish, and instead ended up with these little jack-o-lantern bars.



I used a standard log mold, and each "face" came out a little different.  This was the most fun (and most surprising!) time I've ever had slicing a soap!



I'm not confident I could ever pull it off again (this guy isn't, either), but they're super cute.  I'm so pleased with the way it came out!

haha! the one on the right in the second photo looks like a pirate!  I like how they turned out, and it would becool if you could get it to happen again, and if not, it's definitely a happy accident!

This guy is giving me a look!



So cute, I'm completely in awe of how you would even try to make soap with faces in it Wink  It smells completely divine too!  My whole house smells good now, thanks soapy pirate (and RR) Smiley
