At dinner the other night, my brother and husband got to talking about cool soap ideas. Since Erik works at Otion and my poor husband has lost his kitchen to soap, they’re both pretty savvy about soapmaking. Somehow, they started talking about how cool it would be to have a geometric soap with manly hard angles, rather than the floofy loopy stuff I’ve been doing of late. So, I set out to make them what they wanted.
Well, sort of … the batch is scented with Rhubarb al Fresco (discontinued) rather than something that screamed, “Man! Man! Man!” but really, it’s the thought that counts, right?
Then, I poured a slab of soap, being careful not to tipple topple the entire project.
After approximately 20 minutes, when the first layer was solid enough to hold another slab of soap but also stay put when slanted the opposite direction, I poured the second layer of soap. This project is done with our new Bulk Base and it soaps like a dream. It’s chock full of liquid glycerin so it cuts easily and melts down smoothly.
The top layer uses a contrasting purple color — Bramble Berry’s non-bleeding Liquid Violet.
I’ll post the Reveal Photos are later today or tomorrow.
