I love my 2 lb silicone molds that I got from Wholesale Supplies Plus, but I have to admit that I'm not crazy about how small the soaps are when I cut them. Yeah, yeah, I could just make more than one batch at a time, but I'm lazy and like to do everything in one swoop. So I've decided to use these strictly to test new fragrances to see how well they sell, and if they do great, then I'll upgrade them to my tried and true wooden slab molds that I buy from Candles and Woodcrafts.
With that being said, I've upgraded my old Deep-Seeded to a bigger and brighter version. It's scented in cucumber melon and the seeds are poppy seeds. I love poppy seeds-in and on soap. I don't like poppy seeds in my food though. Weird, huh? Anyway, I'm using my new oxides from TKB Trading Co-love these! They're so pigmented-a little goes a long way. I love how these turned out. The ends are a little crumbly from my cutting them to soon after un-molding them, but once you use it for the first time, it all comes back together.
Side Note: I know this is tacky, but....If you were one of the commenters who "won" one of my Neo Deo samples, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address so I can send your sample! Thanks:)
