When good soap goes bad

I saw these cute easter soaps at Dean & Deluca and just had to find a way to make them for a lot less money ($50 for 16). The Mr even agreed to help me in my endeavor. Somewhere along the line, though, things got a little out of hand. Let's examine shall we?

I found the right size eggs 2 packs for $1 at Michael's. The Mr helped by cutting off one end of the eggs with the drimmel. (and he wore some styling safety glasses while he did it)
I melted down some goat's milk soap base and added color and scent. It poured into the molds without any leaking.

I tried to smooth out the mold lines, but then they just looked like giant suppositories. Yikes! src= No way could these be teacher gifts! And so, a quick trip to Michael's and a 50% off coupon later, and my melted down porno eggs were made much more presentable :)

Oh my goodness! Thanks for the laugh! The final eggs look fantastic!

(You have great timing on Spring Fling prize, I've been out of town for two weeks and will be flying home tomorrow night.)

LOL! I thought soap was for getting clean... not getting dirty! ;-)

Good job! I actually like the cute pastel ones better anyway!

Well written.
That soap was so bad it wasn't good enough to be Naughty.
Your final project is great.

Bahahaha, love the flesh colored ones. I so would have kept those around just for shock value. The finished ones look great!
