Gratcakes February's soap challenge
I wanted to do a log cabin in the woods
Below is my sketch and I can't get it to turn the right way because I'm on a tablet
I was going to mold the cabin wall and the green bushes and snow and rolled tiny Snow flakes too.
Here are the colors I used
I used Sexy stranger on a train ( MO) for my brown, I used it again with some 24k gold mica (WSP) and TD (NS) for the beige. White was made with Super Sparkles mica ( NS) and TD, Green was made with Enchanted Forest (RE) and 3 olive martini (MO),Black was made with Black oyster(MO)
I used dividers to make the color steps ad some milk cartons for the black and white.
And the sky would be made with peacock (MO) and TD
Below are pics of it
The recipe for this I got free from another soaper who does nice little molded things on top of her soaps.
50% lard, 30% coconut oil, 20% soybean oil.
After squeezing this all into the mold and it was a pain in the butt!!!
I got to pour the snow in then stand it up and pour the sky and pit the snow flakes in too.
After the soap was done I realized that much "molding soap" was harsh and it was going threw the salad shooter quickly!
Start over with same idea but hand pouring!
Using two dividers and thick soap I was able to make the cabin wall and the bush. I still had molded snow flakes left so I used them.
The recipe I used was 25% coconut oil, 25% lard, 20% Olive oil, 15% castor oil and 7.5% Shea and mango butters
SL and Silk was used.
A mix of 3 fragrances
Because I was moving so fast because the soap was thickening up. I didn't take a pic of it till it was in the mold
Below is the top of the soap...I know, how exciting!!😯
And here is my entry pic!!
