I’m indulging in yet another new hobby: I decided to make some custom soaps for my sister’s business. This is her logo. There are two ways to make an impression in soap: mold it or stamp it.
The soap is homemade, from olive oil and coconut oil (my very first batch, so please be gentle, I know I made mistakes). I cut the silicone pieces from 1.2mm thick silicone mat, then placed them face down in the silicone cylinder mold. Then poured the soap batch on top while it was still liquid. Some of the mold cells were left plain so I could try the stamping. I made the stamp from 1/4” and 1/8” acrylic.

As you can see, the soap is still way too soft to stamp, so I’ll have to dry the rest of the soaps a while longer before trying again.
