Camo Soap

EB7B0ADA-E083-4C35-BF53-5401742B48CBI had a request from a friend to make a soap that looked like green camouflage. I decided to make two soaps – one green and one pink. This is my first time making a soap like this, so I decided to make a video, too. :)

Thank you so much for reading my post!

In case you’re interested, I have an affiliate store where I’ve listed all of the soap making supplies and materials that I purchase on Amazon: http://amzn.to/2DZmGfJ

If you use those links to buy anything, it won’t cost you anything extra, but I will receive a very small percentage of the sale.  Every little bit helps, though, so thank you very much if you do! :)
