Firstly, this is a picture heavy post!
Secondly, this soap is not what I had planned to post on at this moment, but I like so much how it turned out, that it won't wait for its turn to make its appearance :-) ! This is what I call 'soap protectionism', lol!
I was aiming to different effect than I got, but overall, I'm thrilled with it. However, I'm going to do another batch, or two, to achieve what I had wanted to.
And now,..... presenting.... the 'Moonstone'!
Here it is a picture of the wet soap
This soap is scented in Rice flower, which is gorgeous, feminine and luxury-smell fragrance. I simply adore it.
It's perfume like and I wished for a moment to make a ton of soap and all possible toiletries scented with it. It contains silk as an ultimate luxury touch.
A short ago, I made Lemon Verbena soap and I totally misunderstood the fragrance name. In fact, I thought it was Lemon + Verbena, I never knew there was a plant with the name Lemon Verbena. So, since the verbena is a type of flower, I thought it would be convenient to follow the colorite of the flowers. Of course, I was completely wrong, Lemon verbena is a plant with so small, white or yellow flowers, totally different than I chose for my soap.
So, this time I did a little google prep, to find out what Rice flower looks like. And this is what I found:

That's where I started from. So, the colours were chosen. OK, the sky is not part of the plant, but it makes such a harmony with it, so I kept it. Additionally, I added black for the dramatic, striking effect and I'm glad I did.
I have taken soooo many photos of this soap, so excuse my showing off.
Then, I had no idea what name would be descriptive enough for this soap.
Here it is why it got this one:

This is the semi precious stone and I like to think it my soap resembles it.
What did I do? I poured the white at once and then poured the blue portion. I let it break through the white and then made a 'hanger swirl'. I did the same with all colours, making sure that my hanger goes shallower with every new pouring.
What did I want? I wanted thinner, fine lines (but I knew they wouldn't be, as I had taken out too much of the batter for colour portions), going deeper through the soap. Maybe next time I get closer to that look.
If you're still reading - thank you for staying with me till the end!
Have a wonderful weekend!
