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)
