It’s been a while since my last soap challenge so I’m happy to join you for this months’s challenge. We are making the sceret feather swirl, and as usual I look forward to see a lot of beautiful soaps from you guys. Big thx to Amy Warden at Great Cake Soapwork for another fun challenge.
So, I ended up making three soaps, and the learning was good during the whole process – learning by doing, no exceptions! The picturetaking was a bit difficult. The colors did not come out as they really are. I just can’t get the beautiful green colors to come throug in the pictures….
I had problems with ash inside my soapbars (for the first two batches) so I raised the temperature of my oils/lyewater for this soap, I also warmed my mold to keep my soap from cooling down when pouring. It seemed like a good idea 😉
I didn’t use any dividers – see pics on how I solved it
Soaping at 39 degrees celcius with my std recipe:
30% Coconut oil
50% Olive oil
Fragrance: Rosemery EO
This is my entry for this month:
Pouring technique: In order to «hold the soapline together» I poured the soap sideways using a squeeze nozzel bottle. I also used the SN bottle ( light green ) along the sides to help the line to stay in place.
Colors and tools: Lettuce Entertain & Tahitian Teal from Mad Oils. Squeeze nozzle bottle. The hanger is…. a hanger, with a drinking straw.
