Johanna (Bramble Berry warehouse employee and one of the most creative soaping forces in North America) was inspired by by Soapylove’s most recent tutorial here.
Here’s what she came up with. We’re doing an old-fashioned faint over the realism she was able to pull off with some simple household items.
And, we’re floored by the crafty genius of this soap. In fact, just looking at this photo makes me cry with delight as I write. It is *such* a creative soap.
For this soap Johanna used our flexible Skull mold. The red scarf is made with red tissue paper (it’s taped onto the back of the soap to keep it in place) The eye patch is a piece of construction paper with a sewing thread strap. She used the Luster Black mica in the eye and nose to give a little depth and then the Heavy Metal Gold mica is what gives this salty dog his mischievous grin.
The above soap was used a temporary tattoo for the star in the eye socket (brilliance! This is pure soaping inspiration.)
Finally, Johanna used our Yellow Mica, Heavy Metal Gold Mica, and Luster Black Mica to get that incredibly gorgeous shading. Amazingly, the mica overlay is very easy to put on and forgiving to mistakes so let your inner Picasso go wild and make something amazing today.

Temporary tattoos? On soap? Who'd have thunk? What a great idea!

It’s a good thing my boys don’t have a credit card (or know my acct #) or they’d be buying all your pirate/scary molds.
Excellent creative output from your wonderful staff!
WOW! Those are great! I love the gold tooth- nice touch!
