My daughter asked me to make her succulent soaps for her outside boho wedding in Northern Az, very relaxed and wear casual clothes. She gave me artistic license, poor thing, so I played. Limited to a couple of succlents molds I decided to explore my options. Her reception is in their back yard with mexican rugs, pallets for tables, and mixed flowers and colors. SO......I"m happy with the colors, mostly clays but some other natural colors I've previously used and I'm happy with the recipe I've settled on.. olive oil, rice bran oil, soy wax, castor and 7% kokum (challenge by @earlene quite awhile back to do no more than 10 due to cost. ( Boy were you right!) and good ol goat milk LOL. Some did get ashy as I was anxious to take out of mold I think... but we decided it looks like antique cacti in the desert LOL . Stearic spots on some... I've never tried using the frosting bags before but thought why not? The batter started getting hard, so it was little challenging... I used to decorate cakes years ago, but definitely out of practice! I did have some problems with one batch that I'm not using and posted on another thread. Anyway, I'm inspired to continue to play with the colors and infusions and EOs as I was beginning to feel discouraged. Stearic spots, botchy colors and EOs disappearing into thin air are quite challenging I certainly lean to rustic!
