Here are some pictures of the making of the soap.
Soap base is made, colors are on stand-by, now I just need to separate, color and fragrance this batch
Color complete!! This is not a black but a very dark purple. I love it!
Raspberry color as a base
Add some purple
Then white... rinse and repeat.
Before I turned a spoon through it
Tried not to muddy it up, so I only put a teaspoon through this once.
Pour it all in. I'll admit, at this stage it looks like a muddy mess to me.
Scrape out all the jugs on top. Looks pretty!
Spoon the rest of the white on top and plop some M&P Blackberries on top.
Glitter and done. Gorgeous dahlink. We shall see what it looks like when it's cut!
Ready to find out?
Here we go!
I'm actually quite thrilled with how it turned out. What I thought was going to be a disastrous mess ended up being quite a pretty swirl. I will definitely try this again. I've learned something from this go-round with the ITP swirl.. thicker trace is much better than thin trace. =)
Thanks for reading this post and best of luck to all entrants. Thanks to Amy for this opportunity to show off our masterpieces (for we all are winners in the soapy books) and for the chance to try out new design techniques and/or try again with ones that are outside our comfort zones.
Until next time!
