Gearing up for Autumn...

I know summer is still here but for soap-makers, this is around the time that we usually start getting our fall line-ups together.  Before I jump into my fall soap batches, I wanted to share just a few summer soaps that I didn't blog about. 
Scented with Awapuhi Seaberry.  This is a calming, "by the sea" type of scent with ozonic marine notes with the aroma of tropical flowers, citrus and tart berries on a mellow base of white musk.
I used three different shades of blue swirled into a white base.  The soap balls were made with shredded soap from every soap scrap I could find in varying shades of blue.  I really like how the balls resemble little blue planets
 A fresh and uplifting blend of Orange Zest, Lemon Pulp and Kiwi with a center of Bamboo & Blackcurrant on a warm woodsy base

I really don't know what this technique is called, but for a point of reference, I refer to it as a "traveling faux funnel" pour.  It's just like the faux funnel pour put I choose a different spot to pour every few passes.
One more,  I have to show this one because I just really, really like the scent! 
 Fresh sliced Pineapple beautifully blended with the heady and intoxicating aroma of Jasmine

I honestly can't even talk about the swirling technique for this one, LOL.  For once, I didn't really plan the soap design.  I chose the colors and just sort of dropped them in.  What I have been doing though is playing around with color mixing.  I tend to use the same colors over and over again in my soaps, so I am trying to at least come up with different shades for those colors.  I though this combination was pretty, fun and tropical.
Now, I'm looking forward to fall.  I'll be back to share my creations as I finish them.  Thanks for reading :0)


  1. What wonderful soaps. Each soap has a unique charm.
    I like them all.
    I love and admire your soaps and I'm a fan of yours.

  2. Me too, am a fan! :) I love your swirls, the names you come up with, and your color mastery! :)

  3. And I'm just another fan of your fantastic swirled and coloured soaps. Everyone is a unique piece of art.
    Waiting for your upcoming fall soaps!
