Hi there....it's is time again for a new Soap Challenge from Amy warden at Greatcakes Soapworks. This month, the technique is the Drop Swirl. I had done a few drop swirls before the challenge, but it was good to see a new video, and take on how to do it. This challenge has renewed my love of the Drop swirl....you get so many cool designs from it. I did quite a few drop swirls in the lead up to reveal day, and here are the two that I had the most trouble choosing between! Will let you know at the end of the post which one I have chosen to enter!
First one I did was with the fragrance Sweet Orange and Chili Pepper. Oh how I love this fragrance, and it plays quite nicely too. I chose Red, Orange, Yellow and White as my colours. I used micas to achieve the colours. Here it is. I got a lot of comments about this soap on my facebook page...people saw something in the soap...can you see it? :)
Next I decided to do a rainbow drop swirl. I regularly make a Rainbow Soap using the tiger stripe method, which I sell as fundraiser soap for Autism awareness. So I decided to change the design for a one off time, and do it Drop Swirl style. I am pretty stoked with how it turned out, and I think it will be a bit of a winner with my regular customers.
Even writing this post I was still undecided as to which one to enter! Wish I could do both!! Anyway, I flipped a coin and the rainbow soap won, so I guess that one is my entry! Hope you all like it! Can't wait to see what everyone else has come up with. I love these Challenges, and can't wait for the next one :)
