This month’s challenge from Amy Warden, of Great Cakes Soapworks is the Dandelion Zebra Swirl.
This dandelion zebra swirl was originally discovered by Vinvela Ebony from Dandelion SeiFee. It’s always nice to find out new creative soapers and it’s especially nice to see what the participants joining this challenge from all the corners of the world come with. It amazes me how every soaper interpretes the challenge differently and how original our attempts are.I really admire Amy for organizing these challenges and providing a step by step video and tutorial. I have already seen some soaps presenting this swirl and I was so curious to see the ‘how to’ video as I have never tried this technique before.
I have made a white and a black soap, so curious to see how this ”dandelion zembra” would look like. For the white soap I used as natural colorants: Australian Rose clay, indigo, yellow ochre, while for the black soap I used: Australian Black clay, Spiruline, Australian Rose clay, zinc oxide.Soaps made of: coconut oil, olive oil, cacao butter, sunflower oil, palm oil, Niaouli essential oi, Lavender essential oil.

Both of them looks beautiful. Good job.
They both look great, Natalia!! Are those juniper berries on top of the white one? Love your photos too.
Thanks Amy! No, those are indigo soap pearls 😉
Your soaps are lovely!!
Thanks Anna! Your blog is gorgeous: thanks for all the info you shared there!
Both soaps are stunning, Natalia! The white soap is so beautiful, and the black soap is lovely and dramatic.
Thank you , Jenny! I will have to try some more this technique!
They both look excellent, Nat! I don’t know why you made the second one,but that one is soooo striking! Your colours are wonderful! As usual, great job with taking pics! Keeping my fingers crossed!
Thank you, Maja!
Very lovely ! My best is the black one !
Beautiful! I love that your colourants are all natural.
Beautiful soaps…..the white one is so striking. 🙂
Thanks Diane! So kind of you!
You did it again Natalia. Just lovely stripes. The white one is very classic, but the black soap is the one that made me look twice and it really caught my attention.
Thanks Marika! I am glad you liked the black one too!
Both are beautiful, Natalia! I think it is much more challenging to get a colorful soap with all natural ingredients but you manage so well!
Thanks Silvia! I think the same about natural colorants!
Doua sapunuri minunate, cel alb imi place in mod deosebit, pupici !
Multumesc Geta! Te pupic!
Woow prachtig! groetjes,
Bedankt Marga! Groetjes!
Beautiful soaps! I love that you used natural colorants as well.
I really love the Black background soap! It’s vivid and stands out as not the same. Great combination and fantastic photos
Thanks Mayren! I wanted a darker black color which was not the case using the black clay. Maybe I should have put more of it, of I should have combine it with some activated charcoal… maybe next time 🙂
Both of them are so effective! I am also really impressed about white soap color you achieved in first soap.
Thanks Gordana! It’s because I used less olive oil than usually(+ in the fridge).
Gorgeous once again! Love the black one especially.
Thanks Vicki! I am glad you like it too, I wasn’t sure if I should post it though 😉
Amazing! How’d you do that?
Thanks Denise! I put the link to the inspiration blog. Hope it helps 🙂
J’aime les 2 savons : les ingrédients, la réalisation de la technique, la photo waou …total chic les billes de savon indigo …
Merci Swanee, c’est gentil!
Natalia, these are both so beautiful! I’m very impressed with how well your stripes turned out, and with the beautiful use of natural colorants (especially indigo, which gives me a lot of trouble). Excellent work! 🙂
Thank you so much!
I agree with you – we all have such a variation on our interpretations and I love seeing all the soaps. Love them both, and those pearls on the top.
Nice swirls! ❤
Your soaps came out gorgeous!!
Firstly, can I just say how gorgeous your pictures are?! Just stunning! The soaps are both amazing (you are a master of those natural colorants!) and I love the soap pearls on the top of the first soap…so cute!
Oh, Cee, thank you! In the meantime, my daughter found those soaps and she took all the pearls …;)
Amazing, love both of them! Great photos as well.
