First I made some starfish embeds, here is my Vine video of the making of the starfish embeds:
Have you tried Vine yet? It's a really fun app that just lets you take quick 6-second videos. I'm a bit camera-shy, but these I can handle!
It's hard to see in the video, but I actually dip a dry paintbrush into my glitter and then tap the glitter off over the embed. On these starfish I used purple glitter first, then crystal glitter. I also sprayed the embeds first with rubbing alcohol to help the glitter stick.
Here are the embeds up close:
Next, I made some soap with seaweed swirls and bentonite clay:
Then, I embedded my starfish into the soap:
And close up:
