Been a while since I CP soaped, and i went big.

Didn't quite end up being a "secret" feather swirl since I eyeball-ed too much of the black AC portion, but I like it! Used my usual lard recipe with coconut, olive, shea, castor, scented with shave and a haircut.

Second one is a honey soap with local made honey. Unfortunately I waited too long to cut it and didn't use enough mica for the honey MP on top. I also gelled it for some reason only the soap God's know, even though I know better, so it's got honey spots and it's crumbly. My first ever honey soap was beautiful in comparison, but hey... we all have our off days.

Third one is glycerin MP clear swirled with purple with fake flower embeds I was playing around with. Scented with love spell.

Feels good to get back into it after so long :)

Second attempt! I wanted it to resemble a subtle maple leaf, so I only used 3 lines (Is that what they're called?) of orange/yellow. I waited for medium trace since I wanted the "branch" parts a bit thicker. I should've stuck with light trace and hand stirred the individual portions, because my soap got a bit too thick before I hanger swirled.

It's definitely hidden this time, and I'm hoping next time I'll have it down! Scented with yankee "Leaves" dupe from Maple street candle.

As a bonus, "Bite Me" apple in one of my handmade soap dishes. My SO dropped this particular apple right into a pile of catnip, so it's drying out before I put it in a basket to cure, and then he'll be using it, since he's the one who dropped it :)

No secrets or feathers this time.

A witches brew, with activated charcoal and mica, which will be gifted to my father in law for Christmas, as that's his favorite scent ever. No idea what I did design wise. Something I saw one and tried recreating from memory, like a peak inside a witch's cauldron. Like 90% of what I do design wise=fly by the seat of my pants.

And some random rose bath bombs for me, myself, and I. Unfortunately I forget how much I dislike botanicals until like halfway through, oops.

And some rose quartz MP, with an actual rose quartz heart for my mother. Who will surely use it as decoration, since she dislikes MP but wanted "the clear one" to go with her crystals or something. Whatever, mother. Scented with dark tuberose and a splash of fresh cut rose FO, 4 different shades of pink mica, and gold interference from NY scents dusted on top.

And yes, that is a blue tarp on my table while i make things. I'm messy and its easy to clean 🤣

A lazy reverse, SS. I was so into making this, I forgot to put dividers in. I was going for a Christmas tree since this was a pine scent, but it's still pretty cute considering.

The second one is... a hot mess. I wanted tot ry a wood grain pattern with a line pour, but since I live dangerously and make large batches with FO I don't remember how it behaves... you can see when i ran into trouble, and it's super funky looking, but I don't hate it.
