It is cute, though.
Adorable if I were making soap for leprechauns!
Very pretty, Kiwi!
Lol or tiny hands.. Like mine lol
Seriously though... Have you measured how much total soap you'd need to make? If they're enough for a one lb test batch then all good, yes?
Or use it if you have a little bit left over from a batch. I often use smaller molds for the left overs; I've even had a couple of customers tell me they like the smaller bars better because they fit better in their hands.
@Misschief and @Dawni, the little flower patterns inside are adorable, but I'm not sure how they will come out, given the tiny size of the details. Each cavity is roughly 1"W x 1.75"L x .75"D - so maybe they could be guest soaps? The plan is to use left-over batter from another small batch. I'll post a pic when done.
Wife was out of shave soap, so made her 250 grams. Used "Water Orchid" scent (Crafters Choice from WSP). So also had to make a heavy (25% oils and butters) lotion in the same scent.
First time using BTMS-50. Seems to set up quicker than EWaxNF or BTMS-25.
They are cute molds and will be handy for over pours. Or if you want to make some sample soaps. If you do not want them pm me. I will take them off your hands.
I have a small mold that was just like what happened to you. I use it for the left over batter, and call them "Tastes". I sell them for $1.00 each and quite a few people bought them to try out the soap.
Inventory. I did my year end inventory this morning. I'm glad that's behind me. Now, I just need to input the rest of last year's invoices.
@Kiti Williams, great idea! I don't sell, but I'm considering whether family members who like my soap as gifts might want some guests soaps. I might like them myself for that purpose. If I don't, for sure I'll contact you, @cmzaha, to rehome them. I hate keeping something around that I don't use, and love giving it to someone who will.
My daughter is haveing baby number 3 and wants a gender reveal soap. It has to be done right now as its already too late to give it a long proper cure to actually give people to use. But i need to make atleast two batches and the designs i want to do are a little time intensive and to look right will take two days and four batches. I dont want to be that labor intensive however this design is really pretty and i have been dying to try it.
This is a link to a similar one i want to do.
I am offering to buy them, but you just might find them handy
The reality of consequence is its own harsh teacher, so if someone wont listen too well they still get the lesson sooner or later......
I can finally post on this thread after what seems like a long hiatus for me with Christmas and a moved up wedding I have been deprived of my obsession.. But tonight I finally made soap!
I used Friday Nights from Natures Fragrance and made a very dark blue with stars and white soap bits on top and of course, lots of White Diamond glitter... and now, I wait...
Sorry, quoted wrong post lol
Taking pics of soap to upload on IG.
Here's one.. I recently posted these here but this pic is of the tops.
I'm making a batch of Lemon Poppyseed soap today. After doing my inventory yesterday, I realized I sold an entire batch of it this past season. Time for more!
Last night, I made a batch of oatmeal-goat's-milk-honey with 500g of oil in order to try out my leprechaun-sized molds. I unmolded today, and was pleasantly surprised that the details came out pretty well for such a small mold. The picture shows the rest of the batch, as well, which I poured into more typical-sized cavity-mold bars for comparison.
That sounds delicious. do you use lemon verbana FO?
