Soap Dish!

This is the first soap dish I made. Then I realized I had to do mold making. I had never done mold making, and I found out that it is a lot more complex than I thought it would be. It certainly requires craftsmanship of mold making kind. I've probably made about 7 soap dishes so far. It is a lot of fun but it is a lot of work because unlike making fine art pieces, not only it has to hold a soap, I have to make it in a way that can sit on a flat surface without rattleing. And the soap has to sit on some sort of drainage. So far my resin soap dishes are demanded by local hand made soap artisans. Yes, there are rice, beans, sesame, and sparkles in it.
