Hand Painted Wolf Soap

Well I am still snowed in here in No. Idaho, but I keep reminding myself that spring is just around the corner and soon flowers will be in full bloom. Thank God for my Etsy stores and the craft projects! It helped keep me sane for the 3 months that I have been socked in.

The Twisted Whiskers site has really taken off since I introduced the soy candles, melts, tart warmers, and Puppy Poppers. Ready to take on a new project, I bought a melt and pour soap kit from Ebay with the original idea that I would make some soap on a rope and got some wolf and husky soap molds. Once I got the molds, although gorgeous, they were really too small for that plan, but I decided to go ahead and make some soaps out of them anyway just to see what they looked like. When I removed them from the molds I was amazed at the incredible detail.

I decided I wanted to try to paint them. I was pleased with the way they turned out and for my first attempt, they looked pretty good. I decided to list them at my Etsy store and sell them as a gift set. What a unique gift they would make and certainly a great conversation piece!
