Always with the “Coming Soon”…

I thought I would update you all on some of the other stuff I’ve been working on that may, or may not, end up in the webstore soon.

If you follow my youtube channel you will know that I played around with a cookie cutter rocket bath bomb quite some time ago. I have been searching for a cheap rocket mould since then but, as some of you probably know, it’s not always easy to find cheap supplies and tools that will allow you to achieve the results you want soooo I settled on some slightly more expensive moulds to do the job. I’ve been trying to sort these out for a while so I hope they end up working well in the tub otherwise I might just throw in the towel. Especially now that Lush are apparently releasing a rocket of their own. Always the way, lol.

I made a few fizznuts to use up the remainder of the batch and then proceeded to spill water over half of them. As you do.

 

I’ve also been working on some metallic bath bombs that are kind of funky. Check out that water. It looks like liquid metal. I could make it look even groovier but the more I add of the mica, the more likely you are to get out of the tub with a slightly alienesque sheen to your skin.

How would you feel about bathing in something like this? The only downside thus far is that you have to swish some water down the drain after emptying the tub just to get rid of the excess sparkle. Other than that they are easy peasy. Just toss them in, they fizz away, colour the water and add a gorgeous sparkling metallic-looking shimmer.

The other thing I’ve been working on – and I am really excited about these ones – is my scientific type bath blitzer.

I haven’t thought of a name for them yet. Rest assured they will not be called “scientific bath bombs” hahah. Anyhoo, these are kinda fun. My kids enjoy watching the foam ooze out, emptying them and refilling with water to watch it ooze all over again. You can also just throw them in and watch them float around as the foam and colour shoots out.

I have a few plans for these that are going to be a lot of fun, I’m just looking into packaging options before I can add those extra options.

In other news, I’ve been trying to source some eco-friendly packaging options for my standard bath blitzers. Ideally I would like to remove as much plastic from my packaging as possible but it’s proving to be quite difficult to find packaging in standard sizes that would suit my products. Of course if I had the money I could have some custom ones manufactured but, alas, I do not… and if I did I would probably be more inclined to restock my dyes first, lol.
That being said, I have found a couple of options that might work, I just have to order some and see how they go. Fingers crossed!!

  1. Thanks for the post Irene. So good to see what you’ve been up to and the amazing creations you’ve been working on. I love all of them, especially the liquid metal one. That baby is definitely my thing. Keep up the good work and look forward to seeing what you come up with next 🙂 xx.

    1. Thanks Laura 😀 xx
      I have some more things in the works but I will post those when they are out of the prototype phase. I’ll probably throw these rockets up on the site for an introductory price because I forgot to time how long they took. I also need more moulds so I can make more in the one go (they need to rest in the moulds to dry or they flatten in this ridiculously humid weather we are having at the moment!
      I’m looking forward to deciding what colours to do the metallic ones in. I’m thinking a black with silvery metal, a red one, dark purple is always good… hell, maybe all the colours lol.
