This popped up on my Instagram the other day. Amazing!

Simple yet elegant. Love this one too.
Anyone know what to use to get those tiny embeds! I love that soap!
I think a clay extruder should work.
Do you think soap dough or softer soap?
I've had good luck with some MP columns in soap. I found Crafters Choice GM base to be soft enough for my wire cutter to go through and doesn't sweat. Looking at the mica colors in the embeds, I would guess using some kind of MP. I haven't seen mica hold that much shimmer in a CP/soap dough. Do a quick search for the maker on YT, maybe they have a channel.
I'd bet on soap dough. Once you have the dough, you could maybe knead mica into it and give it a glimmer. I've got a bar I have been wanting to make for a few weeks now that is going to need a lot of extrusions. I'm either going to buy a clay or fondant extruder or make one out of PVC and a caulking gun.

Dawni, I have Madsoaper on IG too! She is so talented and hard to believe she is a first year soaper!
Some people just have it lol
Also, I think you gotta be one of those who likes these kind of soaps.... I like looking but I wouldn't personally wanna make em.
But I agree, her soaps are very nice to look at. Most. Some, for me, are a tad excessive, but to each his/her own, yes?
Indeed a clay extruder will work. Here is a video on the topic. Or a mold will also work.
Absolutely! They are beautiful to look at. Don't wanna make them lol. Too fussy for me, bless all those talented people who can pipe, I cannot! I just love seeing what she makes.
Thank you SoapWitch, I have the fondant extruder but have not tried that soap yet. I haven't made soap for several weeks, feeling rather uninspired. Hopefully I'll get that inspiration back soon.
After seeing her glorious soaps on IG, I found it astonishing that she is so early in her soaping career. Interview with the maker, here:
Great artistic talent--beautiful fun creative designs.....love it!
