 Shocked  These are my FAVE so far!  Had bunches of fun making them today. 


Sea Foam Point, Unscented

Sea Foam Amethysts, Unscented

1 More Sea Foam Amethyst, Unscented

Fuscia Set, Lavender Clove

Fuscia Baby Gems, Lavender Clove

Sage Green Set, Sage Mint

Aqua Set, Unscented

Aqua Baby Gems, Unscented


I was fortunate to find the 'Baby Gem' mold sold as an Ice Tray, at our local grocery.  I'm going to go back and see if I can buy up the lot, I'll share the love on etsy.

If you're looking to make your own soap molds, from Gems or other solid, non-porous items, try searching for 'mix & pour make your own soap molds.'  You can make soap molds from just about ANYTHING! 

One site I've found:
http://www.culinart.net/silicone.html?gclid=CJHcx8uC5ZgCFQa-sgodmRCocA

It's super fun & easy, and no one will ever have a mold like yours.. unless you have a twin and are totally psychic.  Wink

Soapy Love Ya'll!

These are so beautiful!!! I'm super-impressed because I don't know the first thing about making soap, and these are so gorgeous!

It's made with mica "flakes", which is more of a fine dust than a flake.  Mica is made from actual scrap stones, which are impounded into dust.  I love looking at the gemsoaps so much, I hardly use them!  I imagine if it leaves a shimmer, it will be slight and very pretty.  (That is if you like shimmery stuff on you.)  Wink  I'll give one a wash and let you know for sure.
