I've been trying to get away from having too many dupes in my shop and becoming more creative with original blends. Black Raspberry Vanilla, however, is one that I don't think I'll ever stop making. It's not a best seller or anything, but I just love the scent.
Not too sweet with just the perfect amount of tartness. Love it.
So, I mentioned in my last post that I'd found away to anchor my neon pigments better in my soap. For this batch, I started with my neon purple, then added Ultramarine Violet and a bit of activated charcoal. Instead of a super bright neon purple this gave me a beautiful, solid purple. That's all I ever wanted, lol. A solid purple in CP soap. Now, if only I could get a red...
Normally, I really plan out the look of a soap right down to the swirls. All I cared about this time was the color. I just poured the colors in at random and pulled a wire hanger through in no particular pattern. Believe me when I tell you, that's a BIG deal for me! I like plan and control the outcome of my swirls. It was a little (just a little) nice to just let go a bit this time.
