This soap is actually a combination of 3 soaping techniques; CP, HP & MP. The soap itself is cold process, the snowman is hot process and his carrot nose is made from melt and pour soap. I made the snowman using the same technique as the Polar Bear Soap. I don't know how well the noses are going to stick to the soap, I may have to 'glue' them on using a pipette and a bit of melt and pour soap. I brushed a little bit of cotton candy mica onto his cheeks to give him that rosy glow!
When I was making this, I had in mind that I wanted to get a Tiffany blue, but I gave up because I just couldn't seem to get the right color. When I put it in the mold last night the blue was this color:
I was pleasantly surprised when I unmolded the soap this morning and saw that the blue had turned closer to a Tiffany blue, probably from the discoloration of the fragrance oil....lucky break!
I hope everyone is having a nice, relaxing weekend....thanks for reading!
