Lest you get discouraged in your crafting and think that my projects always turn out lovely, here are the first attempts at finding the perfect color for this project:
The two test videos above were made using Orange Mica and Black Oxide. Perhaps oil soluble black oxide wasn’t the best choice for this project. You’d think I would have remembered that after the ill-fated black cloud consumed my bathtub back in January.
In an attempt to get a very seasonally appropriate color theme, I tried a variety of Blacks (from mica to labcolors) and never quite got the color I wanted which is how we went from the garish colors on the left to the gloriously sweet colors on the right.
And we ended up giving them away but some of them were so sad that no one wanted them.
Dirty Business, Your comment made me almost spit my coffee out – you’re funny. =)
Scent Lady, That’s the joys of testing and formulating your own products – lots of opportunity to perfect recipes but they don’t normally start out perfect for me. I sure wish they did! =)

If you’re having problems with a project, then what chance does this mere mortal have? 🙂

I once made a soap that left me covered in a film of black oxide. It was hot.

Luckily, I’ve read enough inspirational quotes/stories to know that nobody is perfect on the first try (Einstein was a lousy student in grade school). But, I sure appreciate your testing things out and warning us about them! 🙂
Man, have I ever been there!
