Reinventing Old Technique

After 270 blog posts later, I find myself having a blogger's block, sort of like a writer's block.  Gosh, what else can I write?  My mission for this blog is alway to put out there in public something informative, never just about pretty pictures or what I have been doing lately.  I want my followers to learn something from reading each post I write.
You can always write to me any suggestion you have, I love to hear your ideas.  But please, please only after you've seen all my post and if you still can't find what you are looking for, I just might take up the challenge!
Now back to this post.  I was chatting with one of my online soapy friends one day and she told me to revisit my old posts and maybe just maybe I'll think differently towards an old idea or technique and reinvent myself.  This is about me reinventing, sort of.  There was a period of time when I was obsessed about combining melt and pour soap base and cold process soap.  I was interested in that contrast between solid (the cold process) and the transparent (melt & Pour).  Since then other techniques took my attentions away and I have not made one for a long time.  This one is called Wild Honey Soap.  I used the clear melt & pour soap base and colored it deep gold which is perfect to represent the wild flower honey.  Well, swirling in hot melt & pour soap is nothing new, so where is the reinventing part?
Do you see the honey comb crunch pieces on the soap top?  I used a sheet of bubble wrap as mold and poured melt & pour soap directly on the bubble side then peeled off into small pieces when it's completely solid.
 This soap is made with coconut water and of course local unrefined wildflower honey.  It's scented with a fragrance blend of sweet honey and wildflower.


  1. Looking beautiful, just as always! :)

  2. It looks really cool! I love the fact that so many soapers are willing to share techniques. As a newbie, I say, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

  3. It is such a pretty soap, but all of your soaps are. Nice reinvention!

  4. Love it Emily so beautiful! Like minds! LOL I just did a similar OHM which needed some reinvention after my 40 other batches. Great idea to go back and re invent, a fashion soap make over so to speak!

  5. OMG gorgeous and the honeycomb topper is inventive!! Thank you for sharing!

  6. I agree with LC, it's just stunning Emily!
