A couple of weeks ago I made a soap using the drop swirl. And guess what! After the February’s soap challenge (sponsored by Amy Warden at http://greatcakessoapworks.com/) was over I got that feeling that March’s challenge would be something about drops in the soap 🙂 I will have to make another soap using the same technique with different colors this time and I am still looking for inspiration.
However, here is the soap which I cannot enter in this month’s challenge 🙂
The drops do not look exactly as drops, do the? To get the white color of the base I used white kaolin and did not let the soap tho gel. Also, as olive oil sometimes gives greenish hues, I used high oleic sunflower instead. The drops were made with red kaolin. No palm oil but coconut, mango and shea butter. However, one of my friends who used it said that the lather was low so next time I should use more coconut oil – 18% do not give that fluffy lather which many people expect to get.
I have to think about what I really want to achieve (designwise) with the next soap I am going to make using the drop swirl.
Guess will dream about it some and then decide what it will be 🙂
I wish you a successful week.
