Blackberries & Cream

Apparently I wasn’t quite ready to let summer go yet, I had to squeeze in one more summer-inspired soap before I called it quits! All I had on hand was grape ice-cube molds but with a bit of convincing, I managed to get the embeds for the top looking like blackberries. This soap contains heavy cream added at trace, and I used green oxide and ultramarine purple mixed with a tiny bit of black oxide for the colors. I couldn’t decide whether I wanted to do swirls or layers, so I decided to just drop the colors in and see what happened:

  1. Looks great, cute tops! "Just dropping the colors in to see what happens" is by far my favorite design technique, hehe!

  2. Lovely colors! And the blackberries are so cute. But I have to say that the blue colors remind me more of snow and ice.

    1. Thanks Kirppu, I think maybe I need to ask for a better camera for Christmas...someone else said it looks light blue, which is weird, because I see purple and green...lol!

  5. This one had been published while I'd been away,but now I found it again,and stopped by just to say that is really beautiful. I like all your soaps, I need to stop saying they are great,I'm repeating myself.
    I love colours,I'm really suffering from not having all those pigments.
    And what I like most about your blog is that you always give us the details on technique and procedure!
