Here are just a few more soaps on curing the rack:
BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S
Butterfly Swirl Effect
This wasn't exactly the swirl that I planned. The swirls were supposed to be coming in towards the center from the top corner and opposite bottom corner, but I guess I sort of stumbled onto a new technique.
When placed together, the bars formed a butterfly pattern that I thought was pretty cool.
I did the same circular swirl pattern with my skewer that I've always done. I think that my new tall skinny mold played a HUGE role in this. It sort of forced the colors to one side, where in the past with my normal size molds, the swirl stayed in the center of the loaf. Two other batches done the same day, had this same effect.
This is really a unique kind of scent. It blends bakery types with fresh. Which sounds very weird yet somehow works very well.
"A blend of Maple, sweet Spices, Coconut Pulp and creamy Vanilla accents on a crisp ozonic base of Clean Linen"
"A flirty heart of light florals kissed with Purple Passion Fruit, sun-ripened Tuscan Grapes and Vanilla musk"
I'm not really a floral kind of girl, but I'm getting there! They are growing on me. This soap was a hit last Valentines Day, so I brought it back. I actually don't mind doing these embeds. They're fun and who can resist sparkly hearts?
In the past, I've always created my own cigar bands, printed them, cut them out, wrapped all the soap bars then shrink wrapped them in plastic soap sleeves or more recently, smell through film. But since I am, for the most part, a one woman show, it really is becoming a bit much in regards to time.
So, I've switched to vellum paper and sticker labels. It took me only a few days to do what normally takes almost 2 weeks. Customer feedback will determine if I stick with this. I like it though ;0)
