Artisan soaps made from luxurious oils and exotic butters with milks, creams and silk fibers; to the whimsy of glycerine soap creations. Full of fluffy bubbles and velvet lathers, once your skin it treated to handmade soap you will never go back. bytheSEAsoap was born out of the love of TSPink soap rocks some fifteen years ago. I found those soaps at a Nevada City Art Gallery and my obsession for beauty in a bar of soap began. I still have a small piece of that first soap! ~~Pam Mella~~

Gradient Layer Soap
Here is a first for me a gradient layerd soap.   In a luscious Tropical Mandarin fragrance and hot tropical colors this was so much fun.  For the 2013 Mandarin Harvest Festival in November.

Out door lighting makes such a difference!

This experiment in color gradation was so much fun and such a valuable lesson.  My take away from this session is that I need to study color a bit more, experiment more with leftovers like the leaves on the mandarin's above!  Going with the flow and trusting imagination.  I thoroughly enjoyed being part of your  SKYPE test.  Thank you Emily.  It was wonderful to experience your class and visit with other soap crazed peoples!

SweetCakes this is for you!  Lavender of course!  Shampoo bars!    An experimental recipe that I think will work out well.  I hope you will like these.

Now to dream up another color challenge!
