Hot Air Balloon Melt and Pour

I always loved seeing the pictures on tv about the hot balloon festival somewhere in Arizona. I think they may have hot balloon rides over the Napa Valley. I have been interested in taking a ride in one but I have some slight fear about doing so.  But I found this melt and pour soap tutorial from The Soap Queen called Hot Air Balloon.  Since I am on the fence on taking a hot balloon right at this moment, I think this bar of soap will suit the bull.
