Oh hai! Did I mention that one of my favorite things about making bath stuff is I get to be a one part mad scientist, and one part designer? Oui dahling! Let me talk to you about chemical reactions while we discuss which shade of blue is going to make this soap look fab! Ok, well maybe not like that. But there is something extremely happy-making about satisfying the science nerd and artiste within me at the same time!
But back to the the main reason of today's post! Today was a busy day, as my time was split between running errands, filing more paperwork and writing down all my recipes. But somewhere in the midst of all of this happy chaos, I had a little time to sit down and work on a new product. That's right, I made a new product today.
Looking at them, there are already a few things I want to change, mainly making a smaller sized one. I can forsee these being slightly problematic in the sense of how does one get more than one use out of them. If I understand correctly, one company does sell bombs this size and it's not been a super issue for the consumer. But like I said, it's something for me to consider. Luckily my batch made 3.5 of these guys, so I've got three to play around with before I start making tweeks. The little half one one, went into the tub immediately to check the color fastness of my chosen pigment.It turned the water a pretty pastel blue, like I was hoping it would, but I wanted to double check. We wouldn't want a colored ring around the tub, now would we? I wasn't too happy with the fizzing action from my tester, but it could also be because it hasn't dried out enough yet. Who knows!?
Anyway, thanks for tuning in today and stay tuned for tomorrow. Test results will be in.
