As 2019 is The Year of The Pig I have made a couple of soaps featuring a cute little pig.
With the aim of creating unique soaps that you can give as gifts, I tried to make some tongue in cheek designs.
In New Orleans there is an artist of international fame, George Rodrigue, sadly he died in 2013.
He is known for his iconic Blue Dog paintings.
I absolutely love them, they are quirky, fun and so New Orleans.
Unfortunately, way out of my price range.
I made this soap to emulate his painting “Going Out to Party”. If you Google it you will see the similarity.
Smells like roasted chestnuts warmed with spiced berry, nutmeg, clove and warm vanilla sugar. Delicious.

Due to the glycerin naturally produced in soap, it draws moisture to itself, AKA a humectant. This means that you need to make sure that your soap has the chance to dry out when not in use. Please do not leave it sitting in a puddle of water when you have finished your bath or shower, because it will turn to mush and you will have wasted your money, and no one wants to do that.
To get that extra mile, I have found that rubbing the soap onto a wash cloth makes it last a lot longer, which took a bit of training as I used to lather the soap directly on my skin.
