Sculpted Soaps

Not a painting this time, but sculpted soaps!
I made these while I was doing my military service in 2010, to pass away the tedious time(and I tell you, it was a perfect time killer).
I had no sculpting tools with me, so I sharpened a wooden chopstick and used it instead.

These soaps are truly amazing! As if your paintwork wasn't awe inspiring enough, you are a highly skilled sculptor too evidently!

The amount of detail shown throughout both pieces is incredible, as well as the level of depth you have shown. The fact that you used a sharpened wooden chopstick as your tool was a clever idea, and this again shows your skills very well <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>
I honestly cant say anything that I can see to improve upon, as is the case from when I look at most of your other works ^^'

Keep up the amazing work, I'm sure I and everyone else would love to see more of these in the future! <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" title=":D (Big Grin)"/>

I'm not a professional sculptor nor have i sculpted anything- besides with playdough- I could assure you that this quite an amazing work. Even someone who works at as a garbage man would know that this is an impressive job.

Soap is very slippery , and to imagine snickering, pealing and cutting off a peck of soap at a time, is very hard and patient work. If you look the the dimensions of the man's beard and the scales of the dragon, you would realize how much time it would have taken ( a-lot ).

It is truly an amazing work and I applaud you for having this much of precision and patients. So, I give you a perfect 5 on the "Technique" part. For everything else, I'm assuming, Just --assuming!- that you have used a reference picture?.. Not too sure but you could correct me on that- I took off half a star on the originality and the rest, as it correlates to each other. If you haven't used a reference picture let's just say i gave you a 5/5 on everything because that is just pure awesomeness.

*just an extra* And also- I came here from reading one of your journals, not to see if what you say is true, to admire this amazing piece once more, as i have this added to my favorites already.

Awesome, Treasures from Toiletries! :D

It'd be cool if you did a short tutorial on your obviously simply method of soap sculpting, since you only used a sharpened piece of hardwood. :la:

great work considering you lack of tools even more so

When I was little, I went to a tea party at a "etiquette restaurant". They gave us all tea, and a plate with a small colorful pink, blue, or yellow rabbit or duck shaped "cookie" . Everyone ate them. :| They were soap bars they told us at the end. Really, they put colorful soap next to tea, and watched the kids eat them. :| They weren't open for long.

I love the dragon soap.

These are pretty impressive. It makes me want to try making one myself, but I am sure my sculptures will suck big time :) Congrats, really digging these.

;A; I tried soap sculptures in sculpture class...they sucked....horribly...(I do not use that phrase lightly, I am NOT a sculpture) I envy your talents....

Reminds me times when I was younger and while preparing soups, I sculpted in some vegetables. It was fun to look at people finding different stuff in their bowls.
