Soap Making Instructional Video: Melt & Pour Autumn Leaf Soaps - Part 1


Autumn Maple Leaf Soaps

The wonderous smells of Fall evoke a host of childhood memories. These soaps were made in an Apple Autumn scent (a specialty blend of GoPlanetEarth). The day after these soaps were made, my staff came into work and wanted to know what that "awesome" smell was in the work room. It was the Apple Autumn fragrance.

As much as we hate to see summer end, we Michiganers also look forward to the glorious Indian Summers that Michigan is known for. We have a put together a pictorial video of how to make our Autumn soaps. You will want to snatch up a Mold Market Maple Leaf mold for this project. It has fabulous depth for the various color pours.

We were going for that earthy Autumn look so we used "earthy" pigments such as red, yellow, kelly green and orange oxide, plus a small amount of gold mica powder for shimmer.
