It has been a while since I participated in a soap challenge but when I saw the challenge I knew I just had to give it a try. I had been admiring some beautiful soaps using this technique but I couldn’t quite figure out how it was done. One of those soaps was created by Tatsiana Serko that I saw on her blog. And surprise, Amy and Tatiana both offered tutorials of the technique.
The swirl requires a very fluid soap and squeeze bottles. It took me three tries – the first was a total failure because I didn’t mix my soap batter long enough. The second try my beautiful pink morphed to white – the soap looks okay but is not what I intended. For my third try I decided to go with simple blue and white to compliment the Fresh Rain fragrance used.
No photos of the first try but here is my second soap:
And here is the blue and white soap. I think I will call it Dancing in the Rain.
This technique is much more difficult than it looks And did I mention time consuming. While I will not be adding this swirl to my regular line up I will be making it again. I am not going to give up on getting the crisp lines with highly contrasting colors.
Thank you Amy and Tatsiana for sharing your tutorials with us.
