I really want a good size slab mold for this one (ie; want depth *and* width), neither of which I have enough of (for what I have in mind) in my little BB slab. This is one of those times when I really, really wish I was handy. I am trying to restrain myself from going in search of yet another mold.

Darn you, Galaxy!

Ally - I've been making mine out of foam core board and lining them with parchment paper. It's very inexpensive and easy to do.

Here's a link to a video that shows a way to make them. Her method is similar to mine. I'll post the other link when I find it :)

http://youtu.be/7_Hd0eFrfYs

ETA here is another link http://youtu.be/DwvlL2LajHU

ETA 2 and I get the foam core board at the dollar store for a $1 each :)

Thanks, Gigi! I have foam core, and can cut it, that is actually something that I can do. Although, man, she is quick at cutting them. I take so long - and then still make mistakes - that I am tempted to just go to the dollar store and see if I can find something workable (also something the video reminded me about.)

Very useful, thanks again.

Please don't use a brown logo as your color. I think it kind of defeats the purpose... :(
Oh I hope it doesn't! I see this as a great opportunity to see that brown DFO's really can be center point and beautiful. I don't know my logo yet or my design, but I plan to use browns since so often I avoid them.

Just so you know, if I hadn't been filming myself, that wouldve been me forgetting the scent in the video...

ETA: And I'm sorry DG, that always sucks. :( I hope the nag champa one comes out even more beautiful!

It will! or I have other tries with blueberry delight, turkish mocha and vanilla buttercream XD

Solid orange with brown speckles is a perfectly pretty colour for orange and clove soap I'd say :)

Take 1. I'm not sure which irritates me more, the fact that my discoloring FO didn't discolor as much as I planned (at least not as dark as I planned but I may have used too little), or the fact that my soap crumbled when I cut it with a knife. I managed to find a bit of wire and salvage three bars and they smell amazing (Nag Champa FO, Clary Sage & Sage EO's)

Ooooo I have a little Turkish Mocha, too. I'm thinking Gap red, still going to give it a day or so before I sign the sheet. These sound fun!

Wait...I'm Stoll confused on the branding thing. You used pink sugar so is that the reason you called it Victoria's secret pink, or is it a section of color that's similar to Victoria's secret pink (your pink mica selection) the reason you named it? I guess my question is are we branding it based on the fragrance name or based on a color choosen (i assumed color...)?
