Soap Challenge 1

Our first Soap Challenge with Amy of Great Cake Soapworks was to create a soap using the 'in the pot swirl' technique.    We've swirled with 15 colours before but that was another technique. You can see the 15 swirl one here.   We can't remember how many swirls we have done before for the in the pot so stuck with 3 colours.


Here's some photos of how we did (don't ask why there wasn't a video:)


Thank you Amy, we're looking forward to weekly challenges (just in time for our market season!)




Even though it got a bit thick:), the finished bar is sublime:

Citron Vegan Luxury Soap with shea butter .  Contact us for pre-orders, this soap will be available May 2nd.

Yes, this looks like a lemony soap just in time for these warm days. Very nice!

The perfect warm weather soap. Looks so light it could float away and 15 layers you said you've done before??? I must see THAT video. Going to watch it now

Becky,

Yes, I did use TD in part of the soap.

Alegria,

Thank you :)

Tina,

Thanks, yes we were thinking it would be great for warm weather.

Donna,

Thanks, no I didn't do a video of the 15 swirl one so I just have the pictures. It took a long time to make that one.
