Pirate Soap

We have a pirate themed bathroom in the house (yes, it’s awesome), and I believe in taking themes to the extreme. Thus, the skull and crossbones soap was born.

You will need:  a bar of soap, and rather dull, small knife, and a bucket to catch the soap carvings.

You can scrape off the company logo if you want, or just use the back side of the soap for carving. The first thing I did was sketch the initial outline into the soap with the tip of the knife. I got a little over-excited and dug the eyes and nose out first, but it came out okay in the end. Other than this step, I basically just carved away the extra soap from my design.

This is it, the finished product. I used a wet q-tip to smooth out the insides of the eyes, and around the edges. Fun times! *Pirate Voice* “Yaaarrr, there be a treasure of cleanliness to be had!”
