I've been working on a little custom soap, custom as in a little something special-it will still have my label on it,so it's not really a "private label." I' ve been working on putting together all the components of color, scent and well a little something special with the stamp. Rounds are so very nice in terms of how they fit in the hand, but they present certain challenges. Rounds are not conducive to adding botanicals on top,too much color work-swirling layers, or texture etc. I had a ball thinking about how I could convey "rose" with this soap. The scent involves Geranium, so it has a "rose" like note. I really should have waited 24 hours or so before stamping, but this is a prototype and I wanted to see the look come together-I stamped a bit early. Overall, I think I'm very happy with the outcome-I hope my customer will be too!
For the colors I used clays and a bit of td-mostly because I was having trouble getting the white area to thicken up at the same rate as the pink part of my batch.
