Isn’t this the cutest soap you’ve ever seen (wink, wink, nudge, nudge)? Okay. Okay…So I rushed this project a little bit. I admit it. It’s the soap only a mother could love, right? Well, here’s my story and I’m sticking to it…
I was in a hurry to showcase our new Aloha Molds, featured above, but my mind was on something else – our new Mineral Makeup Kits. In the last few weeks, I’ve made over 30 different eye shadows and I’m so excited we’ve launched a brand-spankin-new product line.
Back to our new molds, I’m betting that anyone could make a more attractive soap than I just did, especially using PJ’s Tool Kit and having a longer attention span than a 1st grader, unlike yours truly. Grin.
If you do make a better or more creative soap using ANY of the Aloha Molds and post to tell me about it in this thread, I’ll randomly pick a winner and send you five Aloha Molds for your creative genius.
I have made the aloha bamboo with white in the bamboo with yellow back gound successfully but still working on putting a contrasting stripe in the surfboards. Hoping PJ’s kit that I just ordered will do the trick!
Hi Armi –
If you email me the photo (brambleceo at qwest dot net) I’ll totally post it for you to the forum.
Let’s see, the photo on the top left …
It’s the Deep Purple (liquid) here:
It’s a bleeding fragrance so you don’t want to use it for major embedding projects.
Hi, Anne-Marie! Just read your post about wanting to see my plumeria soap – I haven’t quite figured out yet how to post pictures on the web eventhough you have mini-tutorials on the TeachSoap forum. When I do, I’ll try to post one on the forum eventhough I’m a little shy, you are all so talented & I’m just a newbie although I’ve learned so much from your blog & the forum.
Can you tell me if you used BB’s non-bleeding purple color for the soap in the top left-hand corner? I really like how it looks & want to do something similar. Thank you!
I do cp soap and love having subtle designs show up from my molds. These look great!
Wow, you guys have such awesome creativity! I LOVE your ideas …
I wisk I could have seen the Plumeria soap that Armi made and Carrie, I am so happy that your flip flops sound like they´re turning out great. =)
I like your soaps, Anne Marie! I agree with evermoresoap that they look like rocks or gemstones.
As for my experience with Aloha Molds, here goes.. Back in March when you did the flower cut-out soaps, I didn’t have any cookie cutters available & it was the middle of the night so I used my Aloha Mold mini hibiscus and plumeria molds for my flower embeds instead. I colored the hibiscus with yellow mica and used rose pearl and red micas for the plumeria for a deep pink color, then scented each with Tropical Vacation and Plumeria FOs. They came out great and the plumeria one is still one of my favorites to make until now. 🙂

Me! Me! Me! (And my 12 yodd) We’ve made the little flip flops in blue and pink and in aqua and green for her friends and some of mine! We used Tropical Vacation FO. They were easier to do once we got the hang of it and everyone thinks they are just darling. We’ve only made them for gifts, though…not for sell. I actually made some for my friend and me to use on our cruise to Cozumel last November, too!
We’d LOVE to try your new Aloha molds!!!!
I’m sorry to say I haven’t used any of the Aloha molds; but have thought about purchasing the flip-flops. I love the new Batik Dome mold and may have to purchase to do some creative experimenting.
I actually really, really like these! The coloring reminds me of rocks and gemstones.
Your soaps are absolutely beautiful!! Congratulations !!

“Soapstone”…that’s like a pun, too…LOL!
They reminded me of tie-dyed clothing. You should sell them at a New Age gathering!

The soaps actually remind me of carved marble or soapstone. I really like it.
I also think your soaps are beautiful. I always hated being told to stay in the lines as a young child. I still color outside the lines when I feel like it, lol. It’s the rebel in me 🙂

Okay Anne-Marie- this is the perfect challenge for me. I recently purchased the Aloha flip-flop mold for wedding soap favors. They are really some of the cutest molds I have used…And thank goodness through your posting about layering I was able to “tweak” the flower on the flip–or the flop of the mold 🙂
Here’s a tip for anyone trying to achieve layering…YES spritz with alcohol before layer…and YES (great tip from Anne-Marie), if a layer separates–it can easily be re-attached with a small layer of clear MP…this was a LIFE SAVER on some of my soaps…
I plan to post pics of the adorable wedding favors on my blog this weekend.
Thank you Anne-Marie—I would have never be able to achieve the look I wanted without learning some “tips of the trade” from your blog…
Ohhh….I love the new mold! Like I need more though! Lol.
Joanna Schmidt says
I love these! They are so pretty. No, sadly I don’t use soap molds, but I’d love to try and then show it off to you 😉 😉 (wink wink) Maybe you can enter me anyway and then create FOR you. 😀 Anything for you, Anne-Marie.
