Tall and skinny shimmy – soap challenge

This is going to be a very short post because well I don’t have time for a long one.

My first attempt:

Colors mixed – this is the order I wanted to pour my soaps

I got confused and all the teals ended up on one side and the tans on the other

The contrast in the bottom two teals was not enough in my opinion.  Plus the middle pieces did not look as good.  Although I was pleased my first attempt yielded several pieces with a good “shimmy”.

For the second attempt I decided to use seven entirely different colors.  I recently purchased the “pearl” collection from TKB and loved it.  The colors just make me happy so the choice in fragrance was Happy.

The end result

I am very happy with this one – all the pieces turned out with a nice shimmy and as I said these colors make me happy.  Only problem is now that it is done, it reminds me of Easter and I feel like I need to put it away until then – perhaps I’ll name it Bunny Trail.

This was really fun.  I so appreciate the tutorial on how to do this by Tatiana Serko – I have been admiring her soaps for some time and could not quite figure out how it was done.  As always, thank you Amy for all your work in putting these challenges together.
