Con or Bust Dragons

26 01 2014

These are my submission for the Con Or Bust 2014 auction. Here is a link to Con Or Bust, and here is a link to my submission in particular. Bidding doesn’t start until February 10th and there’s just a few things up right now but there will be more and it will be worth checking out.

 
The white dragon is my personal recipe with no added colors or scents.
The red dragon is peppermint.
The orange dragon is grapefruit.
The yellow dragon is honeysuckle.
The green dragon is green clover and aloe.
The blue dragon is ocean rain.
The purple dragon is lavender.

The two top bidders will win. Each will get one of each dragon. The other seven dragons will be divided between them. Each will rank all seven dragons in order of preference. The top winner will get an extra of his/her first ranked dragon. The second winner will get his first ranked or second if it is taken. The top winner will then get his second or third and so on until all seven extras are distributed. The first winner will at worst get extras of the 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 7th choice and the second winner will at worst get the 2nd, 4th, and 6th choice.

Make sure to go to Con Or Bust and do your bidding there. If you try to bid here, it won’t count. I’ll remind you again on the 10th.

26 Jan 2014: These are ready now.

30 Dec 2013: The plumberry dragons have improved somewhat. They aren’t nearly so grey. Nevertheless, I have these ready to be the purple for Con Or Bust. I’ve never had any trouble with lavender and it is a popular scent.

The grapefruit soap has been popular. There’s always a bit of shrinkage when the soap is curing as it’s never completely even. In this case, most of the bars are noticeably non-circular. I could water discount. That would reduce the shrinkage but I use 3″ PVC pipe lined with freezer paper as the mold for these and it’s not always easy to get the soap out undamaged. These of course, just popped right out. Anyway, they smell just as good.

I’m afraid no more soap will be ready in time for Christmas this year but I’m starting to get ready for the Con Or Bust auction which should start at the beginning of February. There were some dragons in this batch as well but they’re reserved for Con Or Bust.

7 Jan 2013: These are ready now. I just took some down to The Old House.
