Haven't been able to do a challenge for a while, and this month the Greatcakes Soapworks challenge was In the Pot Swirl. I decided to do this challenge, a) because I haven't done one for a while, and b) I am crap at in the pot swirls!......so I was hoping that I would learn how to do it properly.
I decided to just jump in and try a 6 colour rainbow swirl....why not, hey?
So my colours for the challenge were:
* Ruby Red Mica - Red
* Peach Sunset Mica - Orange
* Lemon Mica - Yellow
* Golden Green Mica - Green
* Blue Kamikaze Mica - Blue
* Cosmo Martini Mica - Purple
and a white base with Rutile Sheen Mica.
I guess everything went according to plan except the taking of photos during the process....I always forget to do this. I scented with a mix of Kumquat and Energy Fragrance oils. Here is the top:
And here is the finished soap.....please forgive all the air bubbles....my old trusty stick blender died and I had to use another one that puts a lot of bubble into the mix! I'm not convinced about the ITP swirl being easy....I just can't seem to get a handle on it! A couple of bars don't look too bad, but I think I will stick to other swirling techniques!!
So that is the ITP rainbow swirl.....until next time
Bye for now
