Elemental Swirl

Never before thought of trying this challenging swirl, but with this week 2 we had this lovely occasion to give it a try. Elemental swirl is basically two in-the-pot swirls divided by a pencil line. It sounds gorgeous, I know, but at the first sight it sounded kind of difficult to me, because of the…

Tiger Stripe Soap Challenge

I am so happy ย to be able to take part in this challenge organized by Amy. ย 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. ย Nice challenge,…

Green & white clay soap

This is one of my favourite soaps as it contains besides vegetable oils ( coconut oil, palm oil, olive oil, grapeseeds oil, safflower oil) green and white clay.

Graduate Colours Soaps

I believe this is my favourite challenge…because of its simplicity. I found the blue soap made by Amy so lovely that I couldn’t wait trying my own gradure colours soap. As for the previous technique I had to use colorants, this time I was content to use only natural ingredients. My first experience: red clay…

Faux funnel swirl

As I have never tried this technique before, I was really excited about it. I have watched some videos about this and according to me, the more colours you use, the nicer the result. Initially I was thinking about using carrotjuice with red clay and cacao but these would have accelerated the trace. So I…
