In anticipation of upcoming craft fairs, I am working on re-designing some soaps. Heart shaped is a year round favourite, although it is especially popular around Valentine’s or Mother’s Day. I didn’t want to do the usual red heart, but keeping in the same colour scheme, I went purple instead.
The first one I did was way too purple, in fact, it looked black. I remelted it, added more clear and made two hearts out of the one. This helps the purple show up better. To offset the dark colour, I went with a light scent called Energy: citrus with hints of fresh cucumber and jasmine, and a touch of pineapple, blackberry and champagne.
I liked the way the gem in the middle stands out too, with the sparkly mica catching the light and helping the details shine through.
I will have to do a black heart one of these days, because some of us are just dark that way. 😉
