I just wanted to show you the last of my Christmas themed soaps - well, actually they're more Autumn/Winter because I didn't want to do any Christmas specific soaps (the ones you might be left with once 25 December is history, you know what I mean?).
So here is Snow Angel ... she was a real pain to make to be honest. This fragrance acted up big time on me and riced and heated up so I managed to stick blend it into submission. I had plopped some into my pre mixed titanium dioxide so that ended up in it and I stick blended the life out of it (or into it, maybe?) and poured it quickly into my waiting mould.
For the first time, I put a soap into the freezer - I just knew the fridge wasn't going to be cold enough to cool it sufficiently to stop it gelling. I left it in the freezer for the full day, popped it into the fridge overnight and then left it out, demoulded for 24 hours before cutting.
She actually worked out really well and I love her! She's got a love dusting of icy glistening glitter and she smells just wonderful. The fragrance is is a warm Winters blend of Mistletoe, Pink Pepper, Cardamom, Frankincense, Clove, Patchouli & Amber - it's beautiful, simple and yet complex at the same time.
So, here is my Snow Angel .. enjoy!
Hope you enjoy the images - this will be online from mid November at http://www.iamhandmade.com/.
