New techniques on some old favourites.

My favourite time is Making time!!
Today I decided I wanted to play a bit...must have been the sun going to my head...Soooo, on the cards were new re-makes of Lavender and Clary Sage and Buttered Rose. I tried a new pouring technique with Buttered Rose...a Ying Yang swirl. Sounds exotic doesn't it?!!

Basically each colour is mixed individually and poured simultaneously into the mold then swirled together...all before it starts to set up...this can be very quickly, especially with the lashings of beautiful floral essential oils, used in making 'Buttered Rose'.

 I think I made it...what do you think? I added dried rosebuds for extra prettiness <3 <3 <3

Buttered Rose and a Ying Yang swirl.

Lots of re-makes to do in the next few weeks so I'll try to keep you updated...these will be listed on the website in around 5 weeks, once they have cured...don't forget to pop back.
