Sparkling Green Tea Soap

It's one of those fragrances that are yummy out of the bottle but then turn blah in soap. At least that my impression...but boy does it sell well! For this round I've done an in-the-pot swirl, with a lovely Celine top. I didn't want muted colors so I combined my hydrated chromium green with neon green, and my pearl yellow with neon yellow - the result was fantastic! A lovely forest green and bright yellow, just what I wanted!

Before Celine Top

To top it off, GLITTER!!!! It is sparkling green tea after all :)

After Celine top and glitter
Right after I took that last photo I dropped my phone in the lye water of the second batch!! DUH!! Happy to report that it survived...hopefully no internal damage :(

Thanks to all my lovely customers, I've had to double my production, so instead of making one batch at a time, I have to do two just to keep my inventory levels at a decent rate. And with Christmas season coming, I might have to do three at a time. I've resorted to CPOP to cut on the curing time, but still keep the artistic part of making soap - so far with excellent results! Hope to pick up production quite a lot so I can go to all the markets and fairs scheduled this season.

How's your Holiday season production coming along?
