Green Clover & Aloe and Iced Tea Twist

Here are another two soaps from last week. I didn't video the making of these as I was jamming out to holiday music and just having some 'me' time. :-D

The first soap I made was Green Clover & Aloe. The scent is described as a cool, fresh, green scent, and very spa-like. I really like it. At first the green was very mossy but it has lightened up to a really lovely mint color.




This soap is called Iced Tea Twist. The scent it very lemony and fresh. It is described as bright orange and lemon, intertwined with fresh tea leaves, and sugar. I am really loving this one. I did a solid blue layer and then a double pour with a little mantra swirl action going on at the top.




As much as I love using a white background, it's getting harder and harder to get a decent picture of the lighter soaps. For now, this wood background works nicely. I find it is always harder to get good light this time of year. I think the wood background is a soothing color and easy on the eyes.

What to make next...hmmmm.... :-)

It's really neat how the clover soap color mellowed out to the perfect shade of soft mint green. Really pretty. And the twist, wow that blue is amazing.
