You have read this before from me that I seldom repeat my design, even if it's the same fragrance. But there are a couple I do every year that I consider worth keeping and repeat. However, the big concept might have stayed the same, it's the small detail changes that make each batch unique. This is a story about how Mojito Soap evolved over the years.
Original inspiration back in July 2012 is a photo of a beach resort I got online:
This is the very first Mojito Soap combining 3 different techniques: soap embed with outline, pencil line, and M&P soap on top of CP:
This design was a big hit, even got some soapers copying through out the years. The video of making is uploaded on my Youtube channel, just search for Shieh Design Studio if you are interested. This design requires a lot of planning and preparation, definitely not a mess produce effective design. Then the next 2 generation:
I feel like it is losing it's fame, time for a little reinventing! I went back to my original Mojito and really feel like I need to bring back some of the elements. I like the irregular rocks from the first generation rather than those later round balls. But instead of remaking the exact duplicate of first generation I want something else to catch people's attention again. Thanks to all that responded on my Facebook page and gave me some inspirations! I'm rather excited about this new Mojito Soap, still made with coconut water and essential oil blend (instead of artificial fragrance), but a fresh look!
