Amy Warden's Soap Challenge - Week 2



1. Challenge description:

The Elemental Swirl. Amy's instructions say  "If this technique seems overwhelming to you, try dividing your soap into just 4 pots – 2 colored, 2 uncolored. Swirl one colored pot and one uncolored pot together for each layer and do the pencil line in-between." So, I wimped out and just did 2 colors instead of 3! I wasn't afraid to do three, I just wanted my colors to be very bold and very contrasting!

2. Scent description and color choices

The scent I decided to use was a dupe of Bath and Body Works Black Raspberry Vanilla. This fragrance is easy easy easy to work with in cold process soap. I've never had any problems with particular oil so I thought it would be a great thing to use!For my colors I used a titanium dioxide, blue oxide, black oxide, hot pink mica, and purple oxide. Plus, I also used purple jojoba beads for my line instead of mica line.


3. Any problems I might have faced in the process

I didn't really have a problem this round! Woop woop! The soap had a teeny tiny bit of separation  but not even enough to mention . I do think I should've waited another day or two to cut it, but as we have already established, I'm an anxious soaper!

So how do think I did? Week 2 is finished!

  7. Gorgeous! I read your about me and I think that it is just wonderful that you took such initiative to begin a business at such a young age. I also like the fact that you let the Lord use this.
