Holy crap that is amazing, I am going to have to try that!!
Take note on how much colorant I used and back WAY off lol The bleeding is worse now than what I posted before. It's a good thing it looks & smells amazing, otherwise it would be shredded up and turned into confetti
Hope you don't mind me asking, but how are the stars achieved - is it TD?
Don't mind at all @Primrose Yes, its TD (the kind you mix with water) mixed with a little rubbing alcohol. I dipped a toothbrush in the mixture and ran my finger over the bristles.
There's a part 3 to the video I linked in the first post. For some reason it doesn't show up on the side when watching part 2, you have to go to the video list. She used mica. I have no idea why I chose TD, I guess I forgot I had white mica
These are gorgeous, and thank you very much for the video link! I think using soap dough instead of soap scraps is a really brilliant move
Thanks heaps! I was thinking it was TD mixed into the batter but this makes more sense. Shame it would rinse off in the first use, but I don't know that there'd be any other way to do it, would there? To have it go all the way through the bar
Must have taken some serious time and planning too.
The only thing I can think is to shred/chop white soap and use it as a confetti in the black, but I don't think it would give the same look at all. The design still looks great even after the stars wash away
Mostly just making the soap dough ahead of time. I found it was much easier to work with after at least a month. I'm getting started on my next batch
I am curious about that mesh for hand washing? Looks really effective? WHere did you find it?
@Clarice I bought them on Amazon. I like that they give almost instant lather (in my hard water). I toss all the teeny slivers in one. The only thing I don't like is when I wash my hands a billion times a day, it stays a little too wet sometimes. The one I keep hanging in the shower with a shaving puck dries out nicely (I've found these are best for getting a good lather with Windsongs shave soap in the shower, a shave brush works up a better lather, but the mesh is much easier).
Heading to Amazon now! Thanks @midnightsoaper
PS. Love the fox!
It's a squox! My daughter's nickname is Squirrel and my sons is Fox. After I saw that pic, I had to use it somewhere I'd see it over and over again, it's so cute!
@midnightsoaper I had thought it was just a really cool fox! love it!
I don't usually chime in with congratulations because there are a lot of truly incredible soaps posted on this board. But this, @midnightsoaper, this defies words! I can't even!!
Awesome bar! I'm going to have to find this!
