1  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / rubber duck soap and sugar scrubs on: April 18, 2010 05:33:59 PM
first off we have some rubber ducky soap I made useing bakery container as a mold (I think cupcakes came in this)

I put light green/yellow ish for the bottom and a darker color for the top

Next we have some sugar scrubs I made after loving all the ones I seen on here. I normally just make loose sugar scrub with brown sugar and honey and a little vitamin e and put it in a mason jar but I made this from regular sugar and some vitamin e and some coloring and a little melt and pour to hold it solid and put it in a heart candy mold. They smell like orchid! I think these will be MUCH easier to use than digging a handfull out of a jar.
Tell me what ya think. Smiley
2  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / melt and pour shampoo bar?? on: March 29, 2010 10:15:46 PM
Ive seen people on here making shampoo bars but I only do melt and pour soap. Is there any way to add stuff to my melt and pour soap to make it useable as a shampoo bar or is that a silly question? Undecided
3  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / mini body pouf soaps on: March 29, 2010 06:26:38 PM
these are little mini body poufs I made in soap because my daughter LOVES bath poufs so I bought a container of poufs from dollar tree that have 5 in them for $1 and are about 1/4 the size of a normal pouf. I put them in little plastic cups and pour soap on them..I left them clear and scented them with berry scent. I poured the soap up so that all but a bit of the pouf is buried in the soap. Simple but she loves them! There is only about 1.5 ounces of soap in each one so they are pretty small.

this was my first time trying to do the paint swirl thing in glass bulbs. It turned out to be easy and fun so the kids got in on it.
this is a pic of them drying upside down
5  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Melt and Pour question on: November 22, 2009 07:35:00 PM
okay..I found a recipe for green tea melt and pour soap that involved brewing some REALLY strong green tea and adding it to the soap after its melted and adding some of the tea (dry) as well. It looks really pretty and came out of the mold good but its been hours and it hasnt hardened normally. Its at the state of a eraser if that makes sence to any of you. Bendy. Is it doomed or will it just need more time to harden because there is  a splash of liquid in there?
6  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Kids Soaps on: November 15, 2009 11:25:22 PM
I tried my hand at making some kids soaps..here are a couple I made.
Let me know what your honest opinion on them is because I intend on using them as stocking stuffers and need to know if they are gift giving worthy.

The popsicle is chocolate raspberry. I didnt have any chocolate scents or brown coloring sence Im new to this whole soap thing pretty much so I used some hot chocolate to scent and color the chocolate half of them.

I made a bunch of these little toy embedded soaps and made them in all sorts of colors some with frogs and crocodiles and what not but I thought I would share this one because it was one of the ones I added no color to so it was easier to take a pic of.
For molds with the kids toy soap ones I used an empty cupcake liner container. It worked out pretty good and the little soaps have "legs" from the bumps on the bottom of the container. totally unplanned but when I watched my kid use one it worked awesome because when he set it at the edge of the tub it didnt slide of because of the bumps on the bottom..okay enough jibber jabber Tongue

7  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / my two newest soaps on: November 14, 2009 05:40:29 PM
Here are my two newest soaps..Im still new to the whole soap thing so I was pretty happy with how they turned out and they smell great!

8  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / what if anything can be done with this? lg wire spool on: November 08, 2009 10:46:57 PM
My dad owns a welding shop so I have tons of these copper spools that welding wire comes on at my disposal. Every time someone has something they dump it off with me suspecting I will find some sort of crafty use for it. this time I am stumped if this can be turned into anything. So, with that being said..bestow upon me all of your great crafty creativity..
Here be the dreaded spool of craft recycling block:
(it has a 12 inch radious if that helps any and its about 6 inches thick)
9  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / question about a mold I want to use on: November 03, 2009 07:11:55 PM
I was rooting around my cupboard and found these jello molds I used for one of my boys birthdays along time ago shaped like little race cars. I thought they would make the coolest soap molds for little boys soap. Only problem is on the top of the race car hood it says jello. Have any ideas how I can keep that from showing up in the soap? It dips in just a bit on the mold so Im trying to come up with some way to fill that dips so the word dosent show on the end result. Any ideas would be appreciated.
10  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / First try at loofah soap on: November 03, 2009 07:04:07 PM
This is my first attempt at making loofah soap and I think it looks pretty cool. they smell like cucumber melon..I think they look kinda like cucumber slices.
I used the press and seal method instead of the one where you use PVC pipe and it worked pretty good. I left its original wrapper on and wrapped press and seal around it to make sure no leaks go out. After it hardened I cut it then layed the slices out and topped them off with a bit more soap to make sure the centers got filled all the way.
