Okay, we have just finished Christmas and New Year (did you have good ones?) and, wait..... oh my goodness..... Valentine's Day is coming! Really, that soon? How does that happen? ;)
As I sold quite a lot of my soaps in the run up to Christmas I have lots of re-makes to do. However, Valentine's Day is taking precedence in my soap kitchen creation area. I have some limited edition soaps just made and not yet cut. Would you like to see some 'quick and dirty' pics?
On the left is Love Dust ~ using an interpretation of Fairy Dust fragrance. This one set up fairly quickly so I didn't get the pretty, wispy swirls I envisioned.
On the right is Hello Handsome (corny, yes I know) ~ using an interpretation of Very Sexy for Him fragrance. They are both still gelling here.
Here is Love Dust just out of the mould. I still love how it turned out ... air pockets and all!
Hello Handsome and my other new Valentine's Day soap ~ Soft Kisses ~ sitting on my curing rack waiting to be cut. These are my first 2 ever hanger swirls and I think they worked! I will know more when I actually get them cut. They are still a little soft for that.
Soft Kisses is an interpretation of Cashmere Mist fragrance and smells gorgeous!
I realised after posting these pics on my soaping forum that there is a spider web residing on the wall behind my soap racks - you can see it in the photos. LOL! I actually just looked and I can't even see it with the naked eye (even wearing glasses) yet I could feel a wisp of web when I brushed at it. You do know that Australia is full of spiders - all year round? Especially in summer.
I try hard not to think about it....
I will put up some photos of the cut soaps once I am able to. I love cutting into a new soap design/colour/fragrance to see just what I have created with the magic of saponification!
Have an awesome day xxx
