But now it is back to reality..... and soaping pics.
Fairy Dance set up quickly in the mould so I didn't achieve the swirls and textured top that I was imagining. What I did get is possibly even lovelier, which often happens in my magical world of soaping. When I am in the middle of making a batch of cold process soap and things don't go to plan, I just repeat Dory's philosophy to myself....
"just keep swimming, swimming, swimming"
Here is how Fairy Dance looked in the mould ~
I scented it with a custom blend of fragrance oils that individually play very nicely in my soap. Together however was a different story! The end result is definitely worth it as the blend is fruity, tart, sweet and floral all at once. Sun-sweetened, delicious dark raspberries warmed by a hint of vanilla is then rounded out with fresh florals, greens and bamboo.
And now the cut pics ~
In closing, would you like to see a couple of photos from my recent holiday?
