I found a cute mould at the thrift store while shopping with my sister (I think I mentioned that before, but I'm old and forgetful, so you'll have to bear with me) which I keep wanting to use as a wine bottle. My idea this time was to make champagne complete with bubbles and of course use the champagne FO. Oh such a great idea in my mind, the circles would be 3-D, they'd be floating in the background of the bottle like it'd been just popped. Cue to reality.
The "bubbles"were made using an ice cube mould and turned out bigger than I was hoping. No matter, they can still be bubbly. The bottle however, still looks like a freakin' milk bottle. I even added glittery mica to evoke a festive scene, but even glitter couldn't save this soap.
|But it smells darn good!|
So from now on, I think this mould will be saved for making soaps with goat's milk and maybe I'll learn to make some bath cookies to go with it.
On the bright side, a dear friend gave me three new moulds for my birthday, so I'll have some hopefully wonderful new soaps to show in the coming weeks.
Do you ever have ideas that just never turn out the way you think?
