I have admired all the beautiful soaps that have the most awesome
swirls ever since I began soaping. Well yesterday I decided to try my hand at it. I have seen all the pretty soaps that were entered into the Mantra Swirl contest (given by Great Cakes Soapworks) on utube and thought I can do this....LOL! After cutting out the dividers for my mold and preparing my soap dividing it into 4 different colors I poured. DISASTER!!!
My card board dividers collapsed and I had one big mess!! I left it all in the mold and gelled overnite for rebatching.
Not one to give up today I decided to try the linear Swirl from Soap Queen in my 9 bar slab mold. I used a recipe with a lot of olive oil which usually moves very slow for me but used a fragrance oil called Beach Baby that I bought from Nature's Garden but has since been discontinued and I didn't have any info on how it soaped. You can guess what happened ..... it riced on me and by the time I blended it out and added the colors I could barely scoop it into the mold!
Tried to make it look like waves LOL!
On a positive note it does smell good!
Have A Blessed Day!
