Score This Soap!


File this week's score under "Now why didn't I think of that?" I offer soap portraits, but this takes it to a completely different level. Creative Artworks is a relatively new shop on Art Fire, and the artist, Linda Lewis, actually, hand paints portraits onto bars of Jergens soap then seals the portrait with several coats of varnish (I assume it is skin safe) to help the portrait last through as many washings as possible. I am mucho impressed!

Linda currently offers several different designs, and they really look like ACEO paintings only the canvas is soap! How cool is that???

I think it's cute, just not my personal style. Never participated in a "score" before...Since I think that the look would appeal to a lot of people, I'd give it a "B." LOL, once a teacher, always a teacher. I still think in letter grades!

Love your cat by the way. I have two and they're...[I almost wrote "good people."]
