Happy October, everyone! We’ve officially entered the season of pumpkin patches and trick-or-treaters, and we’ve been keeping warm by making batches and batches of soap. Earlier this week, we showed you a rustic Leopard Spot Melt & Pour project, discussed pesky (or awesome, depending on what you’re after!) vanilla discoloration in soaps, and capped off the week by introducing you to the Frog Foot Swirl.
We’ve been busy coming up with tutorials for the holiday season and we can’t wait to share more of them with you in the following weeks. Are you ready to see which soap inspired us this week?
Our Facebook Photo of the Week is a layered soap with a very artistic twist. Patricia, owner of Lathered Pony Soap Company, made a soap she said imitates the “…evening sky when the Montana mountain moon rises.” Using Bramble Berry’s Indian Sandalwood Fragrance Oil and vibrant, deep colors, she definitely pulled off the imagery she was going for. The soap almost looks like an oil painting! She has even made her own versions of the Peacock Swirl, Swirled Hearts and Leopard Spots (see below). Thank you so much for sharing your soapy creations with us, Patricia. Expect a lovely soapy package on your doorstep soon.
For the rest of our fellow soapers, we encourage you to keep posting and sharing your soapy creations with us on Bramble Berry’s Facebook page — we love seeing what you create!

So cool! Very pretty. 🙂 This soap is so artistic. I also like your birch wood and neopolitan heart. You have some great designs, Patricia.

AWESOME SOAP !! This is by far my favorite soap that has been posted on Soap Queen. Patricia is a very talented artist. It’s nice to see something new. If you check out her Facebook she has some equally nice soaps there.
After all how many different swirls can one make with different color combinations. Although many are pretty and interesting I’m ready for something new and learning how to make a soap with the different techniques that had to be used for this soap would be nice to learn.

Thanks Jolie for the very nice comments! “Moon Rising” is a two part project. I make the moon first using a 1″ (inside diameter) PVC pipe cut the length of my mold. I used a F.O. for the mountains (not the Sandalwood F.O.) that I knew accelerated, colored it dark gray and poured it in the mold. After a few minutes, I was able to form the mountains with a spoon. Then, it was just a matter of making the colors and layering them along with the “moon” to try to look like a night sky.
I just made a cucumber aloe soap two days ago using the moon for the cucumber. Will be posting photos of that soon!
The sunset landscape soap looks fantastic. Must have taken sometime to put together. It is really a piece of art

Thanks Lori…it is a two stage project. See below for how I did it.
