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