This month’s soap challenge, sponsored by Amy Warden of Great Cakes Soapworks, was just plain fun and really worth doing a few times. The color pairing is endless so I let my scent lead the inspiration for color on my first effort. The fragrance used was Peach Bellini from Wholesale Supplies Plus. I used a picture of bedding from an LL Bean catalog, to influence the colors I chose for this creamy goat’s milk soap. I used micas from the Conservatorie and combined them to replicate the pink, salmon, rust and off-white. For good measure, I threw a tiny bit of green for interest and contrast. The usual olive oil recipe worked well, but it thicken up a bit quicker than I would’ve liked. This is my first try and I named it Just Peachy. It smells amazing and I’m really happy with the technique. Wish I could hire someone to clean up the soap dishes though!
