I’m a little late posting for the Great Cakes Soapworks challenge this week, but we a break this week anyway so I made my soap last night and cut it this morning. It was still a bit soft, but I think it came out looking great. This week’s challenge was the mica swirl.
Here’s my lovely soap!
I just received an order of fragrances from Brambleberry and had a hard time deciding which to use, but settled on the Grapefruit Lily because I think it’s my fave out of the ones I ordered.
I wanted to put some kind of swirl in the middle and did a modified hanger swirl using ultramarine violet and electric bubblegum pink pigment. For the top of my soap I chose Violaceous Violet and Copper Sparkle Mica with a hint of Merlot Red which blended in with the purple and didn’t show up too much. For the main part of the base of the soap, I added some titanium dioxide but it’s still a bit creamier than I would like. It may brighten as it cures so I’ll have to wait and see I guess!
Here are some more pics of my soap:
