I intended to make some cute spooky soaps for halloween but the dyes came late so I only really recently made some melt & pour soaps up.

This first one i made last month


it was reluctant to escape it's mould so I kept it for myself as the knife smushed half of the edge, it's pink & chocolate scented it's almost a small blob in my sink now but for my first soap it smelt yummy.

More recently I made these up


Much better results! (excuse the soap box to balance them on) a mixture of peppermint, lavander & chocolate scented soaps, the leaves came out very cute actually they were all a test as my 3rd lot of soaps and finally they turned out alright. The only slight problem being one of the blue soaps is a bit oily I used essential peppermint oil instead of fragrance but it is slowly drying up next time I'll use less oil.

I'll be including them as extras for xmas presents now I just need some cheap cute packaging (ahh student budgets)

Nice job. Doesn't it feel good to unmold them and see how they came out? Too fun!! And perfect for that student budget Smiley

the leaf mould was on a huge mould I got on ebay (99p!) & the skullie mould I got thanks to a fellow craftser.

I've made more so heres a photo of soaps made this past weekend, I went a bit over the top when I realised I had loose glitter I could add to soaps.



the purple/blue soap with gold glitter looks so fantastic
