Oh about a month and a half ago, I made this soap that I called Indian Summer. It was okay, but as it cured, the beautiful jewel tones began to fade and ashen. I was not feeling it, but it was perfectly usable soap.
Before the makeover
Then a light bulb came on! Make a huge soap ball, but make it pretty. Let me tell you: I sliced this soap up with a potato peeler, then shaped it by hand to form the perfect orbs you see before you. After I let them set, I then dry-brushed them with various colors of mica to make them shine and glisten like aquamarines, citrines, and pink turquoise. Big difference huh?
