Karma Soap

     Last month was my birthday and my mother got me a big Bramble Berry box filled with goodies! included in the box was a 9 bar unfinished birchwood mold and tons of new FO's including karma (type). Of course the first thing I wanted to do with my new slab mold was the Peacock swirl using Karma. I was so excited I even had plans for my first tutorial but alas it wasn't meant to be, Karma moves FAST!(as you can see in Westminster and Karma Soap Preview)

    Now onto the the soap. After scenting my 2 pound batch with 1oz of Karma I split it into 4 equal batches(this is the point I realized the peacock swirl was not happening). I colored these containers with the following colorants going clockwise starting with the orange;

  •  1/4 tsp of mango madness neon orange + 5 drops of premixed ultramarine blue(to darken the neon orange)
  • 1/4 tsp of hydrated green oxide
  • 1/8 tsp of brown oxide
  • 1/8 tsp of yellow oxide
(all mixed with 2 teaspoons of sweet almond oil)





Instead of the peacock swirl I did a simple layers with gold pencil line in between. I actually really like how it turned out!  It kind of reminds me of a sunset over the ocean! What does it reming you of? Comment below. 


Thanks for stopping by and happy Valentines Day!!!

  2. Happy birthday! Sounds like you got some great gifts! Your soap is very pretty. It also makes me think of a sunset over the ocean or maybe the desert. The pencil lines are a nice touch!
