Sometimes I wish I could put bags over their heads
....then people couldn't judge them by the way they look.
SO - I've had this little dilema (quite minor in the grand scheme of things really). But, you all know how I verge on being anal about my soap turning out "attractive" shall we say.
WELL - recently I made this batch of soap. Once I was done pouring it into the mold, I was so happy and excited because it smelled really delightful and I had made beautiful purple, red and green swirlies with gold dust sprinkled in with the red parts. It was to be a girly girl's soap and would invoke the feeling of giddy happiness.
Well, can I tell you that those grandiose visions were soon killed off as I watched my beautiful batch cure over the next few weeks. It went from a lovely creamy white to caramel and then onto the ugly doo-doo brown you see in the picture. Quite disgusted, I decided that the entire batch was destined for nowhere further than down the hallway to my own bathroom (once again)!! What a bloody waste!
Long story short - I was in the Etsy forums today griping about this ugly soap and a fellow Etsian kathijane suggested that I call this batch "Butt Ugly Soap" for Butt Ugly Skin! What a genius! I think I'll do just that :)
