Kamal ka fool is a complex artisan soap combining several techniques of making and designing soap. The soap features an orange lotus in red stained muck on top of a base of different shades of blue creating a stained glass like effect to signify the pond. And the scent. Lotus, of course. Serene and bright at the same time.
The base of the soap – without the lotus is also available for those who would prefer the soap for a lesser cost or don’t like orange lotuses in red stained muck. More photos soon.
Any metaphors suggested by the design are probably the artist’s intention.
Techniques: Accelerated cold process for base, soap clay for the lotuses and leaves.
Ingredients: Coconut oil, palm oil, castor oil, sunflower oil, almond oil, sodium hydroxide, sodium lactate, mica colorants, lotus fragrance oil. *Transparent melt and pour soap used as a finishing touch.
