I’ve been lusting after all the pictures of ebru painted soap lately and after seeing it on a fellow soaper’s blog I knew I had to try it! With the long weekend and the torrential rains we had soap experimentation was definitely in the plans!
The first batch I did on Friday and I chose very vivid colors. Loved the design until I looked in my cups of colored soap and realized I had a ton of left overs! I immediately thought “I can make this work” and started adding to the mold. Next thing I knew I had covered my entire design with blobs of colored soap! I took my handy dandy chop stick and started swirling so I wouldn’t be totally outdone!
Batch 2 I scented with Sage & Citrus so I chose my colors to reflect such. Not as ebru as batch 1, before I covered with blobs of soap, but I kind of like the delicate lines. If I had to do over I would have colored the back ground soap to make the designs stand out better.
Sunday I unmolded both and I have to say I like both! Are there changes I would have made if I had to do over? Probably, but I call it a very successful experimentation for a rainy 4th of July weekend!
What fun things did you do over the weekend?
