I was inspired by Silvia's post for Father's Day to make blue soap. I used a Soapylove design of squares and two shades of blue to create a more masculine soap. I made 8 soaps in an 8 bar pan and not one of them turned out the way I wanted. Undaunted, I proceeded to make two more individual soaps and they still didn't turn out. Some days, you just need to back slowly away from the soaping table and wave the white flag. Which I did, until the following day.
This time, it turned out much better. Not completely square, but slightly off kilter, much like my personality. However, at least the embeds turned out and the blues are contrasted nicely by the brown.
I hope you all had a wonderful day celebrating with your dads/husbands/and whatever other men who are important in your life. Although it'll be a late gift, guess what my dad is getting for father's day? Yes, 8 bars of not so attractive soaps. :D But they smell amazing.
|Not sure how it happened really, but obviously the white seeped in under the embed. But it smells fantastic, scented with Beau Brummel.|
