The challenge for May is to design a soap with a mica swirl. The mica is to be dispersed in either glycerin or oil (or a combination of the two). My inspiration was a post on the Etsy Blog that was a tutorial on making a marbled scarf using the same technique as marbling paper. The complete post may be found at: https://blog.etsy.com/en/2013/how-to-marbled-scarf/?ref=fp_blog_title. But here is the picture that captured my attention:
We have been very busy recently and I did not start my soap for the challenge until I saw the email from Amy saying the link up to post our pictures was open. So I quickly assembled my supplies and got to work on the my soap.
I have a show on both Saturday and Sunday this week and need to package more soap and make some scrubs today. So I will not have time to post a picture of the soap out of the mold before the link up closes. I will post one on our Facebook page (www.Facebook.com/TheVillageSoapsmith) when I free the soap from the mold. Thank you for understanding.
Once again Amy has provided a fun challenge – thank you Amy for all your work in coordinating the Soap Challenge Club.
