I'm sure if there were any Trekkies (and heaven forbid Trekkers) reading this post, they'd be yelling "Alondra has no moon, and certainly nothing that looks like that!" Well excuse me while I take some wide artistic license to make my moonscape soap.
In cleaning up and getting ready for upcoming fairs, I decided I really didn't like some of my soaps I'd made. So I chopped up one that was made of goat's milk coloured in green, and clear soap coloured pink, separated them out and mixed up the pink with some leftover brown-y coloured soap. Should be a strange combination right? I wanted them to mix, but not mix, so I sort of followed the instructions for swirling on Soapqueen, but rather than pour the colours on top of each other, I poured them side by side.
After I did that I had no freakin' idea what to do with it. I thought I'd cut out embeds, which I did, but they don't show the full swirly effects of the soaps. So I used a circle cutter and made a crescent shape with some of the leftovers. Have I mentioned I'm a leftover fanatic? I love leftovers when it comes to food, but I don't like having a lot of leftover soaps. So I took some leftover blue for the sky, and then put the crescent shape over top for a moon and sprinkled the whole thing with gold glitter for a starry effect. Oh and it's scented with creamsicle cybilla, so guess what you're getting Teresa? ;)
Another project that I found during cleanup is what I call my happy accident. I made alphabet soaps a while back using goat's milk and some lab colours and some of the colours from Soapylove's jewel set. The soaps have developed glycerin dew, which will have to be cleaned up (that's not the happy part) but the colours also melded into each other, creating a much prettier palette than I had originally done.
Hope everyone's had a great week and a wonderful weekend.
