New skull-shaped soap molds

I made some new soap molds today, taking casts in silicone off some real and replica skulls I have here. I quickly cast some goat’s milk soap in them, scented with a mix of ylang-ylang, patchouli, frankincense, salvia sclarea (ie. clary, not the psychedelic drug), orange, and thyme (Caitlin’s favorite combination) and tinted with a tiny bit of black mica (other than the white one, which is just the soap base). These are the very first soaps cast from these molds and I haven’t taken any time to clean them up or correct imperfections. Here you go:

You can continue after the break for close up pictures of everything.

This one is a cast of a puppy’s skull.

And this one is a cat’s skull (a cat with minor tooth disease, as a point of trivia).

This little one, which was pretty hard to get a decent photo of, is the skull of a slow lori.

This is a twenty-something week old human fetal skull. It’s a little big for soap I suppose. I will most likely take another cast of this to make a candle mold (and may do the same for others but I haven’t decided yet). I have another human skull that I made a mold of today, a teenage Asian female, but I haven’t made anything with it yet so I don’t have a picture of that.

Finally, this is the scale model skull with my tattoo on it that a friend of Blair’s made for me.

    Love your skull soaps and candles, they’re turning out better and better. As an aside, I saw this on The Awesomer today and thought of you.

    If there’s any chance you end up making a candle mold out of the replica skull with your tattoo design on it, do please put it in the etsy shop…
