Cut my Wizard of Oz Dorothy soap. Happy with it!!
So well done - just love these!!

I was thinking of using more mica. You think it’ll be the same? I also was going to add some of the gold glitter, to the gold mica. Maybe super sparkles to the silver mica?
Yes, sadly I think it won't help. It's really hard to get sparkly soap unless it is just the tops, mica lines, or M&P like @GemstonePony suggested. FWIW, I really like how the bars look as-is!

I've used Sterling Silver quite a bit in an attempt to have it look silver but alas it always just looks gray. So I've taken to do the mica in oil to drizzle on the top and as a mica line inside.

I made a new soap with the colours inspired by the yellow and blue tapestry... think that type of idea might better be pulled off using a slab mold where you have more control of the design. I'm not in love but I don't mind it. Think it needs more white. Unfortuantely the fragrance (Butt Naked) has vanillan in it which seems to have changed the yellow to more orangey but so far it hasn't affected the white?? Someone thought it was reminiscent of a Van Goh painting - Starry Night maybe - I sort of get it. I wanted to name it something like 'French Kiss' but not sure if people will get that? What do you think?

Looks amazing 😍 How can I make such picture? On a black ?
I recently discover an app called Photo Room. It can change the background of a picture. I use the free version so basically you can choose black or white. It works better if you take your picture against a black background. Then it just kind of darkens it and makes it look cleaner.

You can see the trio behind the yellow ones on the right side.. I'm just waiting on the handcrafted boxes then I'll be releasing them as a limited edition bundle. Excited for that!
Those are beautiful! I think you only use ‘natural’ colorants right? Can I ask you what you used? I’m trying to learn more about them. Thanks!!

@AliOop i get good sparkles w NS Super Sparkle, but metallic silver didn’t work. May try to combine the two.
@GemstonePony yeah, I may have to settle for sparkly grey.
A friend gave me a $ gift and asked that I get myself some art supplies.
I got these and they’re SUPER cool looking! Now I want to pipe all the things!!!
Anyone else ever used these tips with the balls on the end?

Let us know how it turns out! If you can figure out how to make a metallic CP soap (not just tops), you will rise to another level of soaping fame, even above the pull-through fame to which you have already attained. 😁
