I had a rewarding evening last night. After work, I went to yoga. Afterwards, I felt strong and zenlike.
Since my dear husband was busy, I knew I could turn our kitchen into my private soapmaking studio. Bramble Berry is testing for some new non-bleeding colorants so I had plenty of stuff to play with.
Plus, we received some new adorable flexible soap moldsand they were calling out for some TLC playtime.
While testing out the new (hopefully non-bleeding colors), I built the simple layers for the owls and daisies. The detail work is nothing like Otion Soap Teacher PJ’s but since my attention span is on par with a toddler’s, I was happy that I managed to have different color eyes for my owl.
The daisies also came out cute though the yellow in the top right daisy? It speckled during testing so it won’t be added to our line up.
Out of all the colors I tested, there was a clear winner in the Non-Bleeding Red color so expect Bramble Berry to add it to our line up in the next few months.
Sometimes the speckling is from the color not blending in very well because you didn’t stir in well enough or because the color isn’t soluble in the medium you’re mixing it with.
Paula, I totally pulled out the tool kit last night and I’m just not nearly as talented as you but it did definitely help out with the detail work.
They are very very cute..I love owls..
Am I the only one who likes that speckling? I think it adds a little something to the back instead of just a plain color. But I am a painter and use to unique things paints/colorants can and will do on their own. I call it fate. That is how it is suppose to be…lol..:)
What makes the speckling? I sometimes get speckling and wonder why?
You are selling a mini-tool kit that would allow a 12 year old to get the kind of detail I get with my soaps –https://www.brambleberry.com/kits.html –it’s so versatile you can use it for almost any detailed project.
Use one yourself! Silly woman. hehehe
It must be so much fun to try new products! I love how detailed your soaps are = )

Very pretty! I love red, so that’s my favorite. I’m with you on the toddler’s attention span. I have a very hard time with M&P…almost to the point of being M&P impaired! I’ll stick to cp!
The owls look like chocolate! I love it, it’s so cute!!
Such cute molds! Your soaps came out really great!
I can’t wait to see the new colorants. You know I’m all about the non-bleeding action! 🙂

Those are really cute owls! I love that when you have time to yourself, you do soap projects. Same here. I will make stuff I can’t make at work, like lotion bars, fizzy bombs, soap….I’m all about getting into the creativity bug. Gotta work with it, not against it! Right?
Very cute!!! I can’t wait to see the new nonbleeding line up!!!
Well the turned out really great. The red and orange one in the top left pic is my favorite!
