Take a pot of cold process soap.

Pour the bigger pot of soap into the mold.

Spread the smaller bowl of soap over the top.

Run a fork down through it a little bit to push some of the color down.

Ponder if this is going to turn out gross.

Interesting!

I like it!


What I was going for here was an effect reminiscent of an apple. The apple cider fragrance oil itself lends a yellowish color to the soap, and the soap coloring in the part spread on the top looks like the apple peel.

Note: I used the same recipe you can find here in my hot process tutorial, but I made it with the cold process method so I could play artsy with it a little more.

    Very pretty! I also like the peppermint soap you made recently. Have you though any more about maybe selling your soap online? Would love to try some!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either.
