It's done!

Ok, I dashed home from work, threw off my coat and unmolded the soap. It's all I could think about all day.



I *think* it's ok. It wasn't jelly, or full of bubbles or anything.



I'll need to work on soap photography a bit. I totally meant to take a picture of the soap before I cut it but I was way too anxious for that!

Now I just have to wait three weeks *ahhh!* for it to cure before I can use it.

Oh its fabulous Karyn! I love those curves at the top from the beveled edges of the mold. Three weeks before testing it? Torture :)

Your soap looks great! Chocolate mint! I can almost smell it...yum! I can't believe you have to wait 3-4 weeks!! That seems like such a dreadfully long and painful time to wait!!! Hope it goes by quickly.

Oh and the wood soap mold!! It's gorgeous! I could think of a million things to put in a pretty box like that. Your husband did a great job!

Sheila said...

Your soap looks so great I can nearly smell the wonderful scent. And the mold is beautiful. I think your husband needs to be making more of them and selling too. I would not mind being your customer for a mold, but I do want to make the soap myself.
