Here is a textured topped soap I made a few weeks ago. I didn't think I would have enough time to get another one out. But I did and the photos are below.
This week has been a week of catching up after my soaping holiday. Emails, egads what did we do without email? I'm choking here in a good way! So please if I owe you a response I'm getting there I promise!
I did work in a new to me peaked top soap, well fluffy anyway. It's curing and already named, a beer soap called "Dragon's Brew"! A pale Cerveza Especial Modela was used for this soap. After testing a few beer soaps from the HSMG Conference 2012 in Portland, I wanted more! The texture is so interesting to me and the bubbles, like a cowboy who sleeps on silk sheets! I was surprised at the color. The white was to be beer foam, but the body isn't as dark I was thinking it would be! It should darken as I used a Dragon Blood fragrance, and time will tell!
Surprise a beautiful soap waiting for me when l arrived home! A pretty soap sent by another soapmaker who is involved in the GreatCakesSoapWorksChallenge. This beautiful soap from the ITP Challenge intrigued me for it's lovely soft colors and the choice of colors inparticular. I studied the colors as it was such a nice combination my swap buddy sent it to me! Many thanks go out to Santa Barbara Soap whose shop is located here!! I promise to use it after I'd admire it a little bit more! LOL The fragrance is lovely and I cut a tad off the bottom to use. A lovely soap thank you Tracy!
