Adopt a Critter (Soap)

I have two sets of critter molds and I'm trying to perfect the colouring for both. Since they are obviously aimed towards a younger set, I need to make them look more fun and inviting. These are two more that were made today.

I tried to swirl brown and white soap, but it didn't work as you can see. Next time, maybe it'll have a white ear and a white tip on the tail.

 This lion was made using a clear yellow soap and I tried to scratch out spots for the brown soap to show through. Again, not quite the results I wanted. I like the pads though and I think I'll have to do the same for his whiskered face so it stands out better.

Any thoughts or ideas are greatly appreciated.


  1. I think they're pretty perfect - so very adorable, and nice details!

  2. Thanks! I actually made another lion with the goat's milk instead of the clear, so I'll have to see what you all think of that. Stay tuned. :)

  3. I'm impressed! So much patience, time, and certainly talent goes into creating each and every one of these animal critters---so much fun! Children (and big children too) will LOVE them!

  4. Thank you! That is high praise indeed coming from a talented lady such as yourself.

  5. Please stock the little doggie at Christmas! Pleassssse!!!
