My entry for this month’s Soap Challenge hosted by Amy Warden at Great Cakes Soapworks is in light autumn colors, highlighted with gold and copper sparkle micas and scented with vanilla and orange. I used three different golds and some copper sparkle mica to color the raw soap and to swirl the top.
As it happens, every time I make soap cakes I find it difficult to stick to one design for all the cakes. This time, I got four different patters. My two favourite ones are quite different from each other. I also used a different mold for one of them so it is just a little bit larger than the rest. I took the pictures on the day after I made the soaps so they are still in their molds. The base of each soap is marbled.
I chose the vanilla and orange EO combination because it reminds me of the coming holiday season. Smells heavenly and I expect the base soap to darken to brown because of the vanilla, which will make the top pattern stand out even better.
For one of the soaps though, I used blue pearl mica and to preserve the color, used patchouli EO instead of vanilla. The scent is still great though not so “edible.”

Plus the one in the makeshift mold.
Thank you Amy for another fun challenge! I wish I could have some more free time to try other patterns 🙂
Love all the soaps made for this challenge so far!
I hope everibody has a warm and sunny weekend.
