Calacatta Gold | White and gold marble | TINO Natural Stone

Calacatta Gold is a white calcite marble with a timeless aesthetic. It exhibits a sublime off-white base with outlined golden and grey streaks

I used a ten inch loaf mold for these and cut horizontally through a mica layer to get the marbling. The gray and light gold marbling was an in the pot swirl. I wanted the first layer thick to be able to have lots of bumps and get a really uneven mica layer to cut through.  I used Sweet Rain FO from Mile High Soap specifically because it was labeled as greatly increasing acceleration. It definitely did! It also riced a bit on the first half and resulted in a few bubbles/cavities. Cavities, Bubbles, Challenge, Rain, Soap, Natural, Sweet, Rain Fall, Candy

These were made with my three year old. We grated part of three previously made soaps, sprayed with water, and swished together. Easy and fun! I would chop the white bits next time as they were grated thicker. The two browns were grated with a micro plane so very thin.

These are inspired by Colorado River rocks and Red Rocks Amphitheater. I made 4 different colors, all very close, and used an in the pot swirl into a rock mold. Scented with Oduh Wood from Nurture Soap. I did no cleaning up or shining on these to keep the natural look.

My initial idea for the marble was to make turquoise until it was determined that it had to be naturally occurring marble. I was so excited that I could do it when the snazzy rock category was introduced! I used a similar technique to the marble with an accelerating fragrance and mica between 4 layers. I tried to make little mountains to get the round gold deposits like in my inspiration soap. Gold Deposit, Natural Stones, Initials, Decorative Boxes, Marble, Layers, Fragrance, Challenge, Soap
