Festive Soapmaking, November 2007

A few pictures of the results of my soaping session this week! I haven’t got around to trimming and planing yet, so these are raw.

Cranberry Fig stars. I dusted the molds with gold mica before pouring the soap, and I did a red in-the-pot swirl.


Frankincense and Myrrh holly soap. Same mica-dusting technique. These are prettier in real life – mica never really does photograph well with my low-end equipment.


Pomegranate. Just a little pink mica added to the mix. These have a gorgeous glow to them!


Plumeria soap, pink and yellow swirl. Will look better once planed. And some more of the cranberry fig swirly soap.


Assorted semi-castile reptiles. The dragons have air bubbles because the soap traced very suddenly on me. I must remember that that particular mix of pomace olive with lashings of mango butter moves fast through trace!

  1. As usual, they look lovely. What’s the lad’s favourite?

  2. He’s finding it hard to choose between the dragons and the dinosaurs, but I think the dinosaurs are winning. And of the scents, he likes the cranberry fig and the pomegranate. Fruity scents all the way for him.

  3. Wow, those are beautiful! I especially like the dragon mold.

  4. Thanks annaham! Yes, I love all my dragons, too.
