I made this soap last year with a soapy friend to give as gifts to women he was working with as an art therapist. I completely forgot to blog about it! These women had gone through breast cancer so we wanted to make a super-pink and girly soap. This is what we came up with!
We did a simple plop swirl to get the design. You can find instructions here.
We wanted super bright pink colors, so we went with two cosmetic pigments from TKB Trading.
Cosmetic pigments do best when premixed with glycerin or a little oil. Otherwise, you might get speckled color in your soap. We premixed with some olive oil. To get more info on coloring cold process soap, check out our eBook How to Color Cold Process Soap!
Then we brought our soap to trace, divided it out and colored two of the bases pink. We thickened each color up using a stick blender. Once nice and thick, we plopped into the molds. Here are some pictures!
I think it came out great!
Lovely soap. What was substituted for the pumpkin puree in your sample? What part of the process did you incorporate the glitter? So pretty.
I recently did a similar one. I used pink, purple, dark grey and cream. When the soap was at a med/thick trace I put about a tablespoon worth of the cream randomly on the bottom of the mold, then did the same with each of the other colors. The layering of smaller amounts made the soap look really cool and has a definite camp look to it.
Hope that helps others out if they are trying for this look.
Love the colors – so pretty! Love your soaps.
It is beautiful. .. thanks for sharing
What soap recipe did you use. This looks awesome.
