I love how this one turned out. Wispy green swirls and a thin tracery of bronze mica swirl throughout in addition to the bronze swirl over the tops! The fragrance is fantastic – even the hubs liked this one! That surprised me. He usually likes just certain ones and never strays, but he’s gotten to a point where he’s enjoying getting a whiff of other fragrances now and then, and this one he definitely liked.
I did a tracery bronze mica swirl in the center which came through just a light and wispy as it was supposed to, and only used green in addition to the white. TD was used only in a small amount, the rest was done with Kaolin clay, which does a lovely job of lightening up off-white soaps. The fo is so yellow it tends to tint the soap batch a bit, but not to the point where it’s impossible to overcome. This also had some colloidal oatmeal, Tussah silk, and a light sprinkling of iridescent glitter across the tops. It was touch and go as to whether to add the glitter, but went for it anyway.
As the soap cures on the rack, drying as it goes, the white should lighten up to a light ivory colour like the outside edges are already. That will give a better contrast for the green to play off of but only time is going to bring that out. I still couldn’t resist getting a pic in here of these. So these also have a nice healthy dose of Vitamin E, and coconut milk in them for your skin to enjoy and believe me, they will. The coconut milk is very high is fat so this superfats the soap making it the perfect way to make your skin feel soft, smooth, and oh-so-happy! Three oils and one butter for this batch of soap, just like before. and the extras are the same. I think the only thing changed is the way in which it was designed, This batch can be pre-orderd as of now, but will not ship until October 7th when it’s actually fully cured.
