Crafty inspiration can come from anywhere. For the past few weeks, we have been sharing projects inspired by lots of shimmer and shine, including the Romantic Rose Gold Melt & Pour Bars and Sparkling Champagne Cold Process Cupcakes on Soap Queen TV. When brainstorming sparkly cold process designs, I began to think about how “sparkle” is made in nature. This led me to thinking about mining for gold…and voilà! The design for this project came together. See? Inspiration can really come from anywhere. =)
For this Gold Mine Cold Process soap, layers of mica and melt and pour embeds create the look of gold specks within a mine. The top is embellished with King’s Gold Mica painting and more embeds. If you’d like to learn more about how to mica paint, check out this blog post. Love the gold shimmer against the stormy gray base? The Black, White and Gold All Over Cold Process Soap features a slightly different take on the mica painting technique. Scented with a combination of Pure Honey and Sensuous Sandalwood Fragrance Oils, this soap smells warm, sweet and alluring.
