Here are a few pics of recent soaps. I have more curing, and on the sketchboard, but I wanted to share some of my favorite winter soaping. First, there’s Night Sky with Planets, a deep dark vetiver scented soap studded with moons and planets and sprinkled with sparkly mica stars and bits of the Milky Way. This is a bit different every time I make it; sometimes the moons are all crescents, and sometimes the planets have rings. The last batch had one planet that looked very much like our home world!
Next, there’s a batch of unscented, rich in cocoa butter, soap done as a special request. I laid in a marbled pattern done in bamboo charcoal on top as a differentiation from the unscented goatmilk bars and also for a visual treat.
Coming up soon: a Blood Orange binge soap, a mansoap with oakmoss, a salute to the Selkirks, and a Valentine’s soap.
