Today was a very gray rainy day, so what better to do than make a batch of soap? Our latest Christmas Bar seemed to be pretty popular, so we went with a similar pattern, only tried to lighten up on the colors, which were too dark on the original loaf.
We had plenty of time, so I did a hanger swirl and she did the top, complete with a sprinkling of gold mica from Bramble Berry. She tried to dribble it on with a spoon, but it clumped, so we switched to a strainer and that worked. I see why the soapers on You Tube use the strainer. Makes a nice, fine mist.
The scent is a mixture of Glory Bee’s Christmas Day fragrance oil, spearmint and fir needle essential oils, which is a bit different than the original recipe.
It’s in the oven for the rest of the day/evening, so we’ll see what it looks like tomorrow.
