The angled line is the brim of his beret. There's a few whispies above for the top of his beret, and a few whispies below for his head and face. The oval underneath is his shoulder and arm.

That is one ghost that almost eluded me! I can barely make him out. It's a good thing he can't go anywhere else -- I'd never find him again!

Okkkk....I see the cat, and I see the face..but does anyone see the half naked person? Second pic, at base of rose..where the 2 green stamons on top are? Looks like the 'shrugging' man almost..but only the right side of him

I personally think we are all having flashbacks....*snicker* :lol:

Ghostly or not, it looks like travertine marble. I can imagine it in a stainless dish in a stark white subway tile bathroom. In my mind, it has simple lavender or bay rum fragrance. Classic and classy. Good job.

These didn't turn out as planned. They are much more "ghostly" in appearance than I had wanted. There was supposed to be a second swirl color from some parsley infused oil that I added as superfat to a small portion of the batter. Not surprising, it wasn't enough and it didn't show up at all. So, the AC that I intended to be a very minor component of the soap ended up being the only color in the bar. There isn't much to it, but I like subtle soaps so I'm okay with how it turned out.

I should also mention that the pattern in this soap resulted from running my bear paw back scratcher through a drop swirl (see the tool at http://www.soapmakingforum.com/showthread.php?t=48968). I had no idea what I'd get. There was a lot of variation between the bars so I definitely need to do more experimenting to see what kind I can create ;)
3rd photo down. Soap on the bottom left. End of bar has a profile of a ghostly face...mouth wide open emitting a ghostly howl.

Ok I looked closer and I swear Picasso is haunting your soaps cause I see a couple naked bodies, a dragon smoking a hooka, and a googly eyed child from a Stan Silverstein book.

Thanks! It is a lavender-mint EO blend, and it smells fantastic!

Sorry, hmlove beat you to this one -- this is "The Scream."

I wonder what the ghost soaps are up to this Halloween night? DH and I are away on trip. It's just the 2 cats in the house. I can totally envision their tails fluffed up and backs arched from something intangible that just isn't right!
