The other day, hubby needed gas for the car, and the border lineups weren't bad, so we decided to head across the border. Well going across to Bellingham naturally means a stop into Otion. This is what I picked up this time. I had to refrain from buying everything in the store. The dragon mold is what I wanted to order, so I was thrilled to see Otion now carries it.
Of course I had to try out the mold right away. I ended up playing with colour combinations trying to figure out what works and so these aren't full sized because it was all about the colours. I chose the gold colour because it's Chinese and we're known for our gold obsession. ;). I used sunshine yellow from Soapylove's jewel kit and added gold mica.
This next one obviously didn't turn out right, I ran out of soap and had to make some more quickly before it set. Yes I was being lazy, but it was also an experiment to see if would result in a graduated look.
Red and gold are traditional Chinese colours, so this was the result.
So honestly, which one do you like, if any? Oh, and they're scented creamsicle and kumquat.
I also decided to do a variation of the beach soap I did last time. (Thanks for the inspiration Cee.) This time I remembered the glitter.
p.s. If you ever go to Bellingham, I'd highly recommend stopping for a bite (and a beer) at The Copper Hog. I know there are lots of great places to eat in Bellingham, but I just can't stop going here. If you have any suggestions of other fantastic eateries in Bellingham, let me know!
