Soapcraft Sketch

I've just completed 1 sketch for the Bad Brains soap, however, I have some serious challenges ahead.

  1. Red is an extremely difficult color to achieve using Hot Process. Or Cold Process, for that matter. MP glycerin base yields fabulous results, but that isn't how I roll.
  2. The swirl. THE SWIRL. I have been able to create a swirl in the middle section of soap using a coat hanger. I think I can do this again, but the swirl might not be as "perfect" as it is pictured.

I went with African Rain as a scent. My supplier describes is as: The powerful aroma of a tropical rainforest – lush florals drenched in warm rain. Sounds yummy to me.

On a side note, the more I listen to Bad Brains, the more obvious it is to me that the Red Hot Chili Peppers ripped them off in a huge way and this bothers me.

Update: I am also going to be adding a Pixies Soap to the punk rock soap family. It will be called: Here Comes Your Soap. Kiwi Scent. Pixie dust on top. Color TBD.

LOVE The Pixies. Love.

How do you hot process...oven or crockpot?

Crockpot. And when Jere and I can finish the tutorial, you will see this in action.
