All That Glitters...

May be soap!

For your aproval (somehow these just seem to need a formal introduction)… the first is “sun tea”. A black tea mix (earl grey, constant comment, and an English breakfast tea). I had some left over and happened to have the sun mold handy and poured it in. That was two weeks ago and they have been sitting around curing since.. I didn’t like them and was thinking about tossing them when I happened to see the gold mica sitting there… so I did what anyone else would… I burnished the soap.

The second picture is my foray into chocolate. The bars are “cherry cordial”. The red balls are cherry (and cherry FO is yucky I have discovered, I will never do this again) and the brown is, of course, chocolate. Colored with cocoa and scented with some chocolate FO I picked a sample of up. Sorry, scents just aren’t all that important to me.. I can go get the bottle and tell you what it is if anyone really cares. The roses and medallions are a repeat of the sun tea.

The third is my first attempt at black tea. I used a Ceylon black tea but didn’t like it after a week. It didn’t smell or look like what I wanted… ergo the sun tea. Now I like the way the Ceylon tea smells best, but I still don’t like how it looks.

The last is the “biker bar”. It’s a repeat of the batch I screwed up last week… only done right except I did decide to leave the coffee grounds out. It’s a very hard, very sudsy bar. As soon as they get back from bike week I’ll have him test it on bike grease and see if it does the job.

Oo, Cheryl, what a great idea to gild them - they look so upscale! :thumbsup: The third one looks like dark leopard jasper.

I'm so with you on cherry fo - I once got a bottle of "Cherry Blossom" or some such, and it smelled exactly like vomited-up children's cough syrup. (Unfortunately, I know whereof I speak.)

Heehee- "biker bar." :cheesy2:

Thank you all… I have to admit I rather like this bunch of soaps. I happened to have the gold mica for a project for hubby (he loves gold… such a typical Italian! LOL) but I’m going to order some silver for the moons. It will be a pain to do but I think the sun and moon medallions will make cute gifts. I would like to find the same mold done in silicone if anyone knows of a source?

(reminds self to STOP lookin at Grandma's soaps - getting a major inferiority complex)

HAHAHA... I've seen you soaps so stop it! I admit I like my soaps... they are different... unique... but that's only cuz I have poor impulse control. I could start posting pictures of my many failures to make you feel better... but naw... I prefer the compliments! :naughty:
