I'm so, so, so excited! I used my new Nizzy Mould today. I've been wanting to try my hand at some of the fancy color swirls that I've seen many soapers do. Unfortunately, I couldn't get the look that I wanted by using my loaf soap molds.
There are alot of really great slab molds out there. I've fallen in love with Terry Nisbet a.k.a. Nizzy and his products. I would encourage anyone to check him out. Nizzy is truly a soap artist. He is super sweet & kind and his moulds cost less (even with shipping cost from Australia!) than any of the slab molds I've found online in the states.
Anyway, I'm actually quite satisfied with the way the soap turned out. Not bad for my first time, IMO...
When I unmolded this soap, the room was full of "oooh's" and "aah's" as everyone came over to smell it. It really does smell good. I'm still trying to settle on a name for it though. The fragrance oil is called Sleigh Ride but I'm leaning more towards "Home for the Holidays". That's what it makes me think of. It's a very warm and comforting scent. The bars still have to cure for about 4-6 weeks, so I guess we'll have plenty of time to debate over a name, lol.
