Winterland


Soap interpretation of the winter season with snowmen and snowflakes.
 
 
Oils used were Coconut, Palm, Olive, Rice Bran, Castor and Mango Butter.  The snowmen and snowflakes were made using melt and pour soap base.
 
 
White was achieved using titanium dioxide, green was a mixture of woodland green and green shimmer mica and the red was a hodgepodge of different reds I have including stained glass red, strawberry red and apple red with red glitter as well.
 
 
 A modified hanger swirl alternating red, green and white and trying to keep the colors in the middle of the mold.
 
 
Poured the rest of the white on top and ran the wire in the middle a few times for hanger swirl effect.
 
 
Textured and blend the colors on top using spoon.
 
 
Added the snowmen and snowflakes when the soap was hard enough for them to stay put.
 
 
Sprinkled the whole batch with iridescent glitter.
 
 
I waited 48 hours before unmolding the loaf.  It was still a little tacky but held its shape.
 
 
This batch was scented with Mistletoe and Ivy, described as a fragrance blend of cedar leaf, Siberian fir, English holly, holiday mistletoe, cooling camphor, trailing ivy, sandalwood, vetiver, and frosted musk.
 
 
Happy Soaping!
