Just wanted to share a pic of my new soap stamps. They arrived today from Spain and were handmade by the fabulous Omar Lopez. He even made a custom stamp with our farm logo (bottom right) and shipped everything about 5 days after the order was placed. I'm super-happy with the finished goods and quick turnaround time, big thumbs up for Omar! This weekend is sure to be a soap-stamping frenzy so stay tuned for more pics.

Judi - I was thinking about you when I posted and wondered if your stamps arrived yet. Bet you'll have them tomorrow and we'll both be posting lots of stamped soap pics soon! I've got 2 fresh batches ready to unmold and slice (probably tomorrow) so they will be my first victims, muwahaha!

I just stamped the crap outta my Sept SMF Challenge soap, ha ha! Since it was pumpkin scented and Halloween-ish I thought the kitty & moon stamp was most appropriate :)

I LOVE that kitty and moon stamp. I admit after reading this post last night I went to his website and started making a new wish list, that one is on it.

These are wonderful! The cat/moon one is especially adorable and I'm not even a cat person! Perfect just in time for Halloween :)

I discovered the kitty & moon stamp is the perfect shape for a 2lb tall skinny mold! Anyone have tips for applying mica to the stamped area (where are you seven)? I just used a small paint brush and dry-brushed the mica on but there's probably some trick that I'm missing.

This is what I used to think about traditional shaving. :)

I got a very nice acrylic one from an Etsy vendor. I'm pretty happy with my purchase.

I've seen people put a dusting of mica on a plate (or something) and then dip the stamp into it. I can't remember if the stamp was sprayed first with alcohol, but spraying alcohol on a tissue or cloth, or dipping a qtip in it will (in theory) can be used to remove the excess mica from your soap. I'm sure there is a youtube video out there. It might have been one of Amy Warden's and I think she was stamping pumpkins.

The soaps you did look so cute with the kitty on it.
