    I'm just amazed at the (almost) straight layers and super thin pencil lines. I think they're wedding favors? I'm lazy to go back n check lol

    Hey @daisy2000, this thread is for non-members' soaps, to look at for pleasure. We ask that members post their own pics in our Photos section of the forum, where they will get more oohs and aahs from everyone here. Thanks!

    Wasn't sure if this is ok for here.. If not, point me to where it should be instead and I'll replace this.

    On that link it shows one technique using a chain. You know the chain that has those little balls on them. I think that is what she used.

    Sharee, this thread is for posting other people's soaps that we find attractive from online somewhere. The maker of the book soaps Ani Mertens and her Instagram link is at the top of that post. You could ask her if your are also on Instagram. But her first language is not English, so not sure if you will be able to communicate with her effectively. She also has a blog, but the Google translator feature doesn't do it justice as far as I can tell (I don't speak German other than a few random words.)

    I have that book mold. It's beautiful, but I think it's really small bar. I've used it for M&P, "painting" mica on the edge of the mold for the pages. She does a great job of coloring--it really looks like leather.

    I haven't yet tried it with CP. Maybe one of these days.

    Ah! That would explain some of the breaking around the covers. I wonder how easy it would be to reproduce with soap dough and a bar of soap? Maybe drag a fork/fine comb through the top of the bar to create the pages look and wrap in soap dough to create the book binding. You'd only have the pages on one side instead of three, unless you could create a mold liner for the sides, but would work I think. Sigh. Adding this to my list.

    Edit: or one could add the page lines to all three sides immediately after unmolding when the soap is still set but soft. Yeah, I think that's what I would do.

    A little open book mold with a pressed flower inside would be sweet.
