My son, at one point after a summer camp session, kept bugging me for a bar of soap to carve. I didn’t want him to waste any soap but he eventually found a bar to play with and he didn’t get very far.
This bar was one of those hotel soaps, but when I used it, it was too harsh on my skin and made me itch. So before I chuck it, I thought I’d try my hand at carving it. It was brittle and the deeper I went to carve, the more chunks of it would break off so I stopped.
Bar of soap, carved.
