Let’s face it, soaps don’t always turn out how we plan them. It might be that the colors don’t look right together, or the scent is too weak or too strong (or just unpleasant).

It’s so fun when a fashion trend translates perfectly into glycerin soap crafting! Like the “ombre” effect, which is a pretty color fade that is being used in everything from dip dyed shorts to hair color effects. Getting a perfect fade in soap might seem tricky, but with a simple technique you’ll get gorgeous results every time. I see these soaps as a very elegant wedding or bridal shower favor, or a pretty way to add color to enhance your fragrance choice.

Free Tutorial: Snowflake Melt & Pour Soap

by Debbie Chialtas

 

One reason I love shredded glitter is because I rarely see it used in soap projects, and I think it’s so special! This project uses that icy look to full advantage, with layers of translucent pastel snowflakes that sparkle with shredded glitter, lying on a bed of shimmering snow white. Making them in the beveled tray mold makes cutting a snap, plus they look so professional!
