I am so happy to be able to take part in this challenge organized by Amy. Last year was really interesting and fun, so when Amy let us know the challenge would be organized again this year, I was really excited.
For the 1st week, we had to make a Tiger Stripe soap. Nice challenge, as I have never tried it before. But… I didn’t choose the right colors, and for this challenge the colors are essential. The black obtained through the black clay was not as dark as I wanted, or maybe I should have put some more clay. For the orange I used annatto powder. I saw this as a soap for men so I scented it with Vetiver and Cedarwood essential oils .
Thanks Amy for organizing this, I will certainly give another try to this technique with some other colors.

There is nothing wrong with the colors. And you got the most perfect stripes! Before reading your post I actually said to my husband that he should come and see how beautiful colors Natalia´s soap has 🙂 And I still love that fact that you use all natural ingredients.
Ohh, thanks Marika, your words count for me , you know…
I am happy you like it (more than I do) 🙂
Your 2 tiger soaps are so pretty, congratulations!
This is definitely a beautiful soap, Natalia! I love the more natural look and the scent choice is perfect!
Pretty! Looks like marble.
I love how natural it looks~ and that fragrance blend sounds amazing!
Superbe la régularité des stripes. J’adore le rendu des colorants naturels dans les savons.
Merci Swanee! Je suis impatiente de voir ton savon!
I think it looks great..love the natural look! The layers and stripes are so perfect..you must have a very steady hand. Great job! 🙂

ha génial, je le trouve hyper originale, bravo
Love the natural colors, Natalia! Looks lovely, and wonderfully thin and even striping, too!
Lovely! Really reminds me of a tiger!!
Vai, ce frumos a iesit, culoarea gri se armonizeaza tare bine cu portocaliu si bineinteles imi place ca sunt culori naturale !
It is the perfect combination.
Even if it’s not a huge contrast in colours, there’s still enough to see how wonderfully steady your hand must be to create such even lines between the layers. And the toy tiger is so cute!
Natalia, superbe réussite ! Bravo !
Tes savons sont merveilleux et très belle rėgularité du marbrage. Chapeau bas !
Les couleurs sont très belles et evoquent bien le tigre. J’adore !

I really like this, the colours look so earthy. And what a steady hand you have!
I think your scent choice works wonderfully with the natural colors!
What a perfect concentric circles! The most precise soap I’ve seen so far!
And the colours are great, they are so tiger alike
Your stripes are absolutely perfect! I love the subtlety of this one, truly, truly beautiful!
Very nice soap. You have the tiger stripes just perfect, and I love the colours, beeautifuly 🙂 Linda
I think your colors are great! I love your use of natural colors-great job!
wow your swirls are just perfect Natalia and the fragrance sounds great, I love the way Vetiver smells in soap, awful in the bottle but fantasic in a soap bar, lovely work!
Un sapun foarte reusit! Perfect! Felicitari!
Natalia, I love your natural colors! And I’m in awe of the precision of your stripes! Great job! 🙂
This is really gorgeous! So precise but still rustic – one of the most beautiful soap I’ve seen lately! Grate job Nat!
Great tiger stripes. Love the natural look of this soap.
The consistently of your soap must have been perfect- your lines look great! I really love how this turned out for you. Cedar wood is the best smell for a man, reminds of a handsome lumberjack!
Imi plac mult culorile si perfectiunea dungilor. esti foarte priceputa Natalia! Oricum, eu cel mai plin si desavarsit negru l-am obtinut pana acum cu cacao (de fapt un maro foarte inchis)
Such even, thin layers – really gorgeous. I love your use of natural colorants… the blue-gray look of the black clay is quite lovely! Unique EO blend as well.
