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.
