Apple Fruitasia

I am having a blast with making so much soap in preparation for my upcoming show. Currently on batch number 10 with 5 more to go. This new soap makes me happy. It looks very tropical to me and I like bright colors. It's more of an apple kind of vibe with a mix of other citrus notes. My next project is my "Love Peace & Patchouli soap.

Swirl Envy

I have had a serious case of swirl envy lately while eyeing the beautiful creations on the dish. I don't own a log mold because I like to swirl in slab molds but I wanted to test a new blend and I just got my supply of activated charcoal. I was going for a dramatic type of swirl and just plain soap batter and the charcoal for a color contrast. I am curious to see what it looks like unmolded. It's scented with my favorite blend of spearmint and peppermint. Log molds are cool because you can get all types of cool swirl patterns going. However I am not too convinced yet to hand over my slabs.
