I have a bit of a head start on the project which is why I'm so eager to try it. I still have 2 blobs of the Sorcery Soap dough that needs to be put to good use (pink & orange). My plan is to make 1lb of white base and roll pink/orange pencil-thick rods to use as embeds. Now I just have to decide what FO to use because the pink soap dough is already scented with Love Spell. Any suggestions? I thought BB's Champagne might be a nice compliment but other than that idea I'm stumped.Looking forward to the results already!!!
Dang newbie, I wish you had posted a link to your caned soap but I will definitely search for it. I'm not so convinced that low water is necessary or desirable for soap dough. The dough I have was probably made at least 2 months ago but it's still pliable after warming it up with a little hand-kneading. It's been kept in plastic wrap inside a ziploc sandwich bag since I got it. I was able to work with it bare-handed from the get go and never felt like I was handling raw, zappy soap.http://auntieclaras.com/2016/08/agateware-soap/
She describes how she did it. I had an attempt at caning with soap a while back with spectacularly boring and blah effect, posted in the photo section. It was not at all memorable. Looks like I needed to wait longer and use less water. Way to go, Auntie Clara!
Great video and gorgeous soap made by none other than SMF's TVivian! I haven't seen her post lately but periodically check the Soapish youtube channel hoping for new videos.
