GARAGE SALE FIND + ANTIQUE SHOW FIND = THIS!

This pound of Melt and Pour soap was at a garage sale for .25 cents....................
I put it into an old sauce pan to melt.......................
Poured it into this AWESOME OLD ROOSTER MOLD ( holds 10!) I found at an antique show...$20.00. My friend Lisa told me to spray it lightly first with Pam >>>>>(great hint Lisa....thanks!!) After it sets take the end of a butter knife to pop them out. OH>>>>> his agent requires that I mention that Mr. OTM was the hand model for this photo shoot....LOL!

AND HERE THEY ARE!!! They were VERY EASY to do but kind of a pain because you have to keep re-melting the soap in order to be able to pour it. The directions instruct you to do this with a microwave but ours is on the fritz so I did it on the stove top. Anyway, I love how they turned out and can't wait to try it again once we get a new micro!! (hint hint Mr. OTM...with the royalties from this photo shoot he should have plenty to get me a new micro....don't you think??......lol!)


SO.......... I have $20.25 invested in to this project . My plan is that after I make and sell a few of these I will come out ahead. Sounds good right?? I plan on doing some cinnamon wax bowl fillers and stuff too so I think it should work out. (I just have to keep telling myself this becasue I wanted the rooster mold so bad and in case Mr. OTM reads this I have a legit business plan in effect!! LOL!) Have a great day!!!

That soap is adorable. Those roosters would also be cute with a tiny ripped strip tied around the neck! You won't have any problem selling them. Have fun playing with your new goodies. Dawn

Your rooster mold is definately worth the $20 you paid for it!
Those soaps turned out amazing!
And what a great bargain on the soap...You practically stole it!

These are really cute. One word of caution though. I made white soap Santa's one year using a candy mold. Most people thought they were white chocolate. Be sure to label them well! Soap won't hurt anyone who bites into it, but they might not be too happy about it.
