So, I am in the begining stages of developing my saponified tribute to punk pioneer, Joan Jett. As many of you know, Joan fronted the Blackhearts. Therefore, I've incorporated a black heart embed into the top of the design. I used a M & P soap base for this. Trust me, I really struggled with it. I've made little soap hearts with my homemade soap, but decided that the hassle factor would be too high for this one. It is clove-scented. When I think of Joan, I tend to imagine that she is a natural-type gal who enjoys the smell of fresh spices. Don't ask me why. She could be a citrus fan - I don't know her personally.
I am going with a light orange before the cook. After, I will separate about a third and intensify it with more red. This will be the top layer (going for fire, here, people). The black heart will be pressed into the top, but I am going to leave a bit sticking up (a) for interest and (b) to judge where to make cuts. I can generally make 6 1"thick slices from each of my molds.
Here is the general schematic:
