Air brushing, painting, performance, embeds, mold types… I love the instant gratification, quick customer return,ease of clean up, and creative potential for making bath bombs! Soap will always be my favorite though!! Here’s some recent things I’ve been up to. I’ve been kind of MIA from the forum because I’m lagging on my soap making with work opening up, and bath bomb making. But thought I’d start a thread and share a few recent makes. I’d love to see any bath bombs you’ve made!!!

My experiment may not have been very accurate because the only color I got enough binder in was the orange. Still, ingshing the mix between 2 half cookie sheets was definitely the most fun! (It may be possible to smoosh with feet in socks.)

This is a fun full circle sort of bb. It’s a custom order for a group of artists I used to work with called the flaming lotus girls. The embeds will hopefully be fire colors with one pink center, leaving the water safety orange. Hopefully! Now if they just float and don’t flip over, that’d be great!!
Also, I got this cute little heart mold for free with my last order. It was perfect for the couple of T of mix I had left!!

These are fantastic. I just ordered the pentagram mold. I know my pagan friends will love it. It is nice to see they look so great. I will now have to find the "Green Man"

I make cupcake bath bombs that seem to be very popular. I package them in cupcake boxes. I'm trying to get more made for Mother's Day. They are a 2-part bomb - the top is a bubble bath and the bottom "cupcake part" is the actual bath bomb.

I found Morgan’s Corner’s FB page. There’s a puppy that looks just like my Brittany. 😊The heading picture of chocolate dipped strawberries is amazing!!!! ❤️❤️❤️ I think it’s going to take me most of the morning to go through all of the pictures and then send an email to request an invoice. Thank you!

Mold shopping is my true passion! 😆
@MellonFriend oh there’s still magic to it!

Vaccum form molds are definitely a learning curve! But the designs are super fun! The recipe has to be different. The packing has to get the details but then not packed so heavy they sink. (unless you don’t mind sinking. Some makers/customers don’t mind.

Are you using the purchased recipe for Robyn’s high humidity bath bombs? I purchased her new book but haven’t started playing with the recipes in it yet. I am assuming I need to switch from the moon cakes recipe to one that contains corn starch to get it to float.

I use the humid recipe, more or less.

Omg I’m dying! These turned out better than I expected. I really tried to use my airbrush as much as possible.

Tested a couple last night. The heart was a “failed” batch that I couldn’t get the mold to work so I switched to this mold. And then this bomb was one that broke and so I crumbled and remolded it. I save these for myself usually. Turned out to be one of the best in awhile!
Can’t wait to paint these crabby crabs! Hope I can make them look “crabby”.

After much debate, I bought the humid recipe and will be playing with it next weekend. It’s very close to what I was already using for my Mooncake press. I also ordered four Molds from Morgan’s corner. I plan to make lots of butterflies for the ladies at my daughters group home to paint, plus help them make their own own simpler mooncake bath bombs.

I love your Possum and the painting on it! So now I have an airbrush in my shopping cart, a birthday present to myself. And because it’s a possum and I play music on my Autoharp, I now have an earworm that I will share with you. Please note, anyone without a twisted sense of humor should not click on this video!

I’ve got suggestions for airbrushes if you want. And happy to share what I’ve learned about VF molds. Don’t see the video yet. Maybe it’ll pop up when I’m back on Wi-Fi.

Not sure why the video is not showing except that the opening shot may be objectionable to some. (Sorry).

Yes please! I would love to know what you learned about airbrushes. Right now I’m looking at the one that Robyn linked on a post. Keep in mind that I don’t sell and only make what I can get away or foist onto people. I’m now starting to stress over mixing BB paint. BTW, I was able to go back through all of your posts on the FBB Facebook site, Including the post where somebody recommended an airbrush and you purchased it. Those threads were a great help on my learning curve. Now I have to put it into practice. 😁
