Wow! These are absolutely intricate, amazing examples of what can be done with soap. Soap Carving used to be all the rage – and actually taught in schools in the ’50’s. I know, because I have textbooks on the subject from 1947.
I’ve tried soap carving. It’s not the most ideal medium but it definitely works. And, if you have an innate aptitude for carving or sculpting at all, soap is a fine medium.
In the meantime, marvel at the craftsman skills of a soap sculptor in Thailand.
