Christmas Eve

I am naming these guys "Christmas Eve"
Ingedients used were Coconut Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Olive Oil, Palm Oil, Mango Butter, Castor Oil and Avocado Oil.
Colors were matte blue, strawberry red blended with stained glass red, titanium dioxide for white and a significant amount of activated charcoal for black.
Fragranced with "Mistletoe and Ivy" described as a sensual Christmas blends of cedar leaf, Siberian fir, English holly, holiday mistletoe, cooling camphor, trailing ivy, sandalwood, vetiver, and frosted musk.
I did an "in-the-pot" swirl of the white for snow, blue for the sky, red for holidays and black for the night.
Poured the swirled soap batter above into the mold.
Covered the top with white soap batter.
Drizzled the leftover blue and red for festive night scene.
Using the back of a spoon I textured the top.
Added the trees.
The stars and the trees were "melt and pour" soap.
 It was still a little on the soft side after 24 hours.
The whole soft soap loaf after 48 hours was finally hard enough to cut.

Hopefully the colors will stay as they cure.
Happy Soaping!
