Fruitarama


This week's effort is a fruity little number - smells of all sorts of tropical fruit. I stuck to a fairly basic recipe for this one - just olive, coconut, avocado & cocoa butter. But, true to form, when I mixed the 3 colours one of them was actually turquoise (well, for a while anyway) until I turned round and it had gone - surprise surprise - brown. So, my pattern (inspired by the amazing soaps at Alkali Soap Studio) is no longer red, orange & turquoise. Who knows what'll happen when it's finished gelling etc. Your guess is as good as mine!

Wow! A lovely fruity jammy swirly soap. Good effort (for a croaper!)
Bet you are secretly very smug with this one ;-)
You are definately getting better at this soaping lark when I see your older ones. Keep on soapin'JoJo x

Ta ladies.
No surprise though, it's morphed overnight and the colours are NOTHING like they were yesterday! If it'll come out of the mould I'll take more pics.

I was only marginally smug Corrie - I knew it wouldn't stay as it was :-(
