Melt & Pour Soap Making: Hand Carved Gem Stone Soaps

Woo Hoo...look at these little gems. Hand carved from blocks of colored soap. Our Sophie Soap Chick does it again. She took an idea and ran with it! Antique copper and turquoise liquid gel colors were used for these soaps. I'll have more details next week on the "how to" part. Soaps averaged between 1.7 to 2.2 ounces.

Our silicone or Mold Market square loaf was used to pour the big block for the carved soaps. The big block was then cut into smaller blocks to carve. Make sure you save all the extra soap scraps left from carving. You can use them for other soaping projects.
