Soaps on the curing rack

Soaps on the curing rack:

Bora Bora - I still don't have a cut picture of it, only this wet pic. The bottom is a bright magenta/violet and the scent is a complex tropical fruit/sweet floral (smells somewhat like Victoria's Secret Love Spell).

Mendhi - bottom is deep blue and the scent is Nag Champa (earthy, sweet resin, spicy incense, and sandalwood). I was going for a henna-inspired look on the top. I need to get cut pics of this one too... I'm good at getting wet pics, but I drop the ball when it comes to getting cut pics (until it's time for Etsy photos).

We went to MOMA this weekend! Very very inspirational! Esp. when it came to colour. I hope that we can kind of incorporate some of that into our soaps. :)

Those are amazing. As usual I am very impressed by your use of color and art in your soaps!

Sarah said...

Amazing as are such an artist. What kind of coloring do you use?

Sarah said...

Oh and if it is okay with you I would like to add you to my links on my blog.

Your soaps are a work of art.

I'm a long time lurker on Soapdish and always love to see your soaps, totally inspirational!
I even tried my version of your Pollock, didn't do it much justice :-(
One day, many years from now I'll make soap like you....perhaps!

Are these hot process or cold?

(pretty pretty)

Thanks, everyone!

We use oxides and micas (and for neon colours, we use neon oxides). And our soaps are cold process :)
