I was happy that this month’s challenge is the Taiwan Swirl because I had seen a number of soaps with this design but I have never attempted it before (perhaps because I was not sure how it was accomplished). As usual Amy provided a video explaining how to do the swirl and I was surprised that such pretty soap was relatively easy. The trick is in cutting the bars.
For this challenge I decided to use four colors because I had a set of dividers that would work perfectly to assist me with pouring even rows. I choose White Tea & Ginger for the fragrance since I knew it would give me time to work and used sparkle gold mica, titanium dioxide, cosmos martini purple and a mix of greens.
Here are some photos of making the soap – sorry they are not the best since I used my phone to take the pics.
I was thrilled to see that the swirl went all the way through the soap and the bottom looked a lot like the top.
I really like how this turned out.
Thanks Amy for another fun challenge. This is a design that will be making again soon.
