Its is Valentine's Day and what else to do but come up with a Rocking, Pink, Romantic Soap. That is the vision...how it ended up in the end it's another story! :o)
I have been admiring all these soaps with delicate swirls. The soap base would be a solid white or cream color and there would be a couple of delicate swirls, dancing on the top. I can't seem to come close to that technique. I get carried away with my color and before you know it I have all these out of control swirls. I just need to figure out how to be a little conservative with my color! Especially with my reds and pinks!
I really like the play of the gold within the pink/red. I read in a blog that the soaper was really happy with the 14K Gold Mica that she purchased at TKB Trading, and I remembered that I had some in my color box!
Once again I tried to use embeds on the top. These are suppose to be "Hearts"...but according to my sister-in-law they look more like "Teeth Retainers" :o/...
Maybe next time I will try to position them differently.
If you are wondering which fragrance I used, I tried a new fragrance from Rustic Escentuals, Mediterranean Garden. It has a very nice light floral fragrance to it and it performed really well. I am glad I was able to pick up a good supply since I purchased it on Clearance and it looks like they are now discontinued.
I have a long holiday weekend coming up and I am hoping to do some more soaping!
Thanks for checking out my blog!
