Rose Soap

I made this soap for a wholesale customer. It's usually made with embeds, but I've run out and don't have time to make more, so I decided to try something new -- swirly roses. The inspiration for these comes from Bavarian glass painting. It's not quite the same, but it is similar.



Please pardon the messy molds. I tend to pour soap everywhere when trying to be creative. The fast-moving floral fragrance didn't help!

Thanks so much! I feel a little guilty because these are so easy to do. I'll try to get some decent photos and post a tutorial later.

Messy molds? Who's noticing the messy molds when the soap is so incredible?? And easy? That's hard for me to believe.

Wow, what a gorgeous soap. I can't wait to see your tutorial. Maybe we could have you guest blog on Soap Queen one of these days? This is an awesome looking batch of soap.

I could even send you our camera to take "decent" photos with?
