So, here we have it! My Graffiti soap.
Bit of a nightmare actually, and not exactly what I had in mind.
In mind beforehand was a fuchsia pink base, the black line, a purple layer & black line, lime green layer & black line, and brilliant blue top.
What I got after using lab colours was: An insipid pale pink, a blue purple, lime (ok, I'm loving the lime) and a blue top with silver glitter.
It smells sweet. A combo of freshly baked bread & lemons....so like lemon bread, whatever that is.
I'm so not sure about this. Matt loved it. I'm a bit miffed that I didn't get the colours out of the lab colours. When I mixed the pink, the batter was BRIGHT PINK but this must've reacted during the insulation period and turned back to almost natural soap. The pink was on the very base still but that's all.
I keep picking a chunk up and looking at it with a quizzical grin. Hmmm, I'm not sure. Don't think I like it but that acid lime green kicks ass.
I need a name. A good name. I've been looking through some of our books at home. We have 'Subway Art', Banksy flip books, 'Spraycan Art'....I shall trawl through and find something apt.
I've been a lover of this 'criminal' art for years and years, so what better way than to put it into soap.
I leave it to you to decide what you think. Feel free to be frank in your comments.
This soap shall be on sale in my Etsy in about a month. I shall update you. It will be cheap!
