I need this little project to be a success I boldly volunteered to make soap for the guests at my son and his fiancé’s wedding in June. As a first step, I’m starting to test colors. The Bride-to-Be is going with “bright” colors for her flowers. The bridesmaids will be wearing very pale pink dresses, the guys will be wearing navy and my son will be wearing light blue. Based on photos she sent me (see below), I created a color palette using the color blender that was recently linked in another thread. I couldn’t bring myself to add orange shades... She just let me know that the light blue I added is probably too grey. Otherwise, I think I’m on the right track relative to what she envisions. The mica blends I tried in my first test run today look great in oil, but I think the pinkish purple shades are too rosy in the ungelled wet batter. The loaf is doing it’s thing now, so maybe gelling will shift the color. The rosy blend is mostly Nurture’s Queen of Hearts, with some Cheshire Cat mixed in. The yellow is Yellow Vibrance with a tad of Orange Vibrance and a tiny shot of Sahara Gold. Photos of everything, below Any suggestions about ways to achieve the palette colors will be appreciated. Would blending fluorescent micas in with regular micas help with the brightness without going full fluorescent? If you have thoughts about orange added to this palette, I’m open to that as well. The designs I’m considering are hearts and possibly flowers in solids, layered (am I crazy???) and swirled soaps made in loaves with each full size bar cut in half. There will be 130 guests, so I’m thinking 150 soaps will do it.
