Moya from m. alán came over today to soap! We had a blast. I hadn’t soaped in about a month so it felt good!
We started off with a spoon type of swirl in a slab mold. We divided the base four ways and colored using Chameleon Red Mica from Suppliesbystar.com, chromium hydroxide teal green and ultramarine violet (both from Star).
It turned out great! Since it was so thick we had to bang it on the floor and then Moya swirled the top. I can’t wait to see how it looks out of the mold.
Next I wanted to try out a new slab mold that I made out of silicone. I also wanted to do a fall themed soap for a swap. So we did a colum swirl using black charcoal and Pumpkin mica from TKB. We scented it using an EO blend of anise, peppermint and grapefruit.
Me and Moya!
Have a great weekend!
Great design! I love the creativity. Maybe I will try these swirl techniques next time I soap. I am interested in trying out silicone mold/liners. Where did you get the silicone liner and mold?
Moya brought her 6 bar mold. I can’t remember where she said it was from. I think it might be a TOG mold.
This looks fantastic. Seems you guys did have a blast. Next time!!!!!
I had so much fun. Thanks again Amanda!!! I will upload the photos of the soap tomorrow, and let the bars sit for a week so I can mail your bar!! I have to keep that scent/color scheme for my line. 🙂 that swirl looks great, and people will love the e/o blend!!!
Love the column swirl thingy. Gotta give it a try. I’m scared but I’m willing. LOVE your big soaping table !
How fun to soap with a buddy!!! Now there’s an anise blend I hadn’t thought of – you know I’m in search of a good blend… I think I’ll go see the cut pics now – nothing like instant gratification! 🙂
Love it , soapy saturday !! 😉
