New Soap Molds (Skull Soap + Zentastic Soap)

I spent the afternoon getting tattooed, completely going over the big Schutzstaffel zombie (inspired by one of the characters in Dead Snow, although Shane has given him a new face). If you look at Shane Faulkner’s facebook page in the next day or two he took some nice pictures of it when we finished the session, and I’ll post some as well when I’ve unwrapped it and it looks nice again. I don’t think I got enough sleep last night so it hurt a lot, but nonetheless, I really do love everything about tattooing, including the experience.

Before leaving though I poured some quick soap in the new molds I cured last night — a skull soap, and a Zentastic promo soap. I will put some of these in the shop in the next couple days ($5 seems to be the going rate for hobby soap, so I guess that seems like a reasonable place to price it, although it might end up being less), but I think I’m going to put them into orders by regular customers and large orders for free as a thank-you gift. Here are the two bars that I made, cast in a goats milk soap with slight peppermint scent.

In addition to the goats milk, I also cast them in a clear soap (also peppermint):

Per Caitlin’s suggestion I’ll do some experiments with speckling in red blood in various ways. We’re debating whether it’s better to drip the “blood” (which will just be a deep red tinted soap) when it’s all liquid (Caitlin’s thought), or to splatter it into the mold first (my thought), then let it harden (maybe even freeze it to make it resilient) and then pour the bone colour on second. Both will be tried.

Other than that we have temporarily adopted a sparrow that broke its wing. We’re not sure if it’s beyond saving but we are doing our best. Assuming the horrible cat does not figure out a way to eat it in the night I will report more tomorrow on our little friend.

I realize that with the opening and closing teasers, it is apparent to everyone that I have posted pictures of the least interesting part of my day. I’m sorry, but for now it’s the only part that I’ve photographed. I will amend it tomorrow. Tomorrow will not be an entry containing only a picture of me going to the post office, even though I am planning the ammunition for that.
