My first batch of  HPOP (Oven Process) soap! I made the base soap from Mango Butter, Coconut Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Autumn Woods Fragrance (and of course, lye and water). Before I made the soap, I poured colored and scented MP soap onto backing sheets. I cut out leaf shapes in three different colors and set them aside. When the soap was finished cooking, and no longer caustic I added my fragrance and poured it into the log mold. Once it cooled down a bit, I stuck my little MP leaves in the top!

Here are the logs Smiley



And here are the bars after being cut!

Those are really stunning, I've never seen anything like that before, great job!
On a silly note, I can't help wondering if the leaves would poke you when you used it. Grin Yeah, that's just how my brain works.

LOL! I wondered the very same thing, but so far it's been pretty tame. The leaves actually bend over pretty easily, so when you get down to washing they don't interfere. Since I cut them very thin, they behave.  Grin

So cute! When ever I see pictures of stuff sticking out of the soap it's usually just squares or something stupid. But I think I'm actually coming around to liking it now.

Nice job!

I know what you mean. I love the idea of embedding shapes so I was inspired to create a unique version. I really like how it came out so now I'm trying to cook up some more ideas! I was thinking of doing blades of grass on my next batch.
