Christmas is just around the corner and so I decided to make more of the gingerbread men. The mold held after being used a couple times.
I am also taking advantage of my friend D's molds that I still have with me. Will have to return them soon. I called the above soap "Winter scene". Original idea was from my supplier's website. I used the circle mold from D and added some shredded white soap base and two green tree soaps I made earlier to a red and white base and poured a clear soap base on top to keep everything in place. This was my first attempt and I am very happy with the result.
I also made a tiny snowman and placed them on top of the gingerbread men for the picture. I guess they would look better added to some colorful winter scene.
D also lend me some flower soap molds and I played with them by just pouring the colored soaps in the main flowers and poured a white soap base for the rest of the mold.
I also tried to embed a tree, the awareness ribbon and flowers into some of the regular soap molds. Although better than my previous attempt at embedding, I waited to cool the clear soap too long and they started to harden when I poured them and thus I got wrinkles and uneven clear top layer to the soaps.
Still needed a lot of practice but I am enjoying every creations so far.
