I have a Vintage Fair to attend, which is hosted by the WAVEteam - a bunch of fashionista's from Worcester (Worcester Arts & Vintage Events).
It's not easy to 'get into' these events so imagine how thrilled I was at being accepted.
I had written to the girls to apply and had given some ideas I had rolling around my head for some 40's inspired soaps for the days event. The fair is a tribute to the 1940's and will include tunes from the war years, along with homemade lemonade and cupcakes as well as vintage clothing stands.
So anyway, about 2 weeks later I got an email saying my application was successful.
Today I set to work on my first creation.
I already had the name and the stylin' of the soap all sorted.
It came together in a flash.
I wanted the styling of a Lancaster bomber with a deep but fresh scent - one a little like the smell of old army & navy (and I guess RAF) clothes!
I have used Sweet Orange, Spike Lavender with black Patchouli.
It smells exactly as I wanted it to.
As you can see I have used the funnel technique....something I've not done for about 3 years.
I get scared! You know how thin a trace you need to achieve this right?
Well...I chose oils I know don't accelerate and reached a thin trace and started the pour.
Happy...yes I am! Though..it does look a little like the rings of Saturn!
Cut picks shall be coming up tomorrow.
