Soap design inspiration can come from anywhere. From fragrances to color, places and people, inspiration can strike at any moment. This Sahara Sunset Cold Process was inspired by the iconic image of an African sunset. As the bright yellow sun sets over the landscape, the silhouettes of wildlife and flora come to life. The bright yellow sun is created with LCP (like cold process) melt and pour soap. LCP soap has little to no sweating, which makes it perfect for embeds.
Layers of red, orange and yellow cold process are then layered on top. This project is scented with a blend of Patchouli, Orange Peel Cybilla and Beau Brummel Cybilla Fragrance Oils, which results in a citrusy, spicy and complex scent. While this design looks complex, it is actually quite easy to achieve! This design relies on creating layers with medium to thick trace soap. The layers make it a great design choice for accelerating fragrance oils.
