Colors used in this project were Heavy Metal Gold Mica (coming soon to Bramble Berry), Canary Labcolor, Non-Bleeding Violet and Liquid Orange mixed with Heavy Metal Gold for the swirl. Click here for instructions on making this soap.
I fragranced the bar with Rhubarb al Fresco (yum) and it smells fresh, bright and sweet – just like the design.
Overall, the design came out crisp, clean and interesting looking. The heavy gold mica is the perfect foil for the bright and cheery colors of yellow and purple, giving the look a little edge.
My younger brother, Erik also is quite a soapmaster. Since he teaches classes at Otion, he’s a tough judge. He did the “Will this break in the shower” test to ensure that the layers were sticking.
I held my breath.
They stuck. Phew. Every time I do a soap that doesn’t turn out just perfect, he teases me mercilessly. The BB staff think those exchanges are hilarious.
