After asking my Facebook fans for some inspiration, I decided to go with Sharun Fetzer’s suggestion to make a soap with the “elemental” swirl. So called, I believe because the end result is somewhat like fire and water with its vibrant shades of orange and blue. The basic premise is to make two different in-the-pot swirls with a mica line in-between the two layers. I chose to use micas from The Conservatorie, plus a neon orange colorant from Brambleberry.
The scent is Caribbean Diva – my own blend of a super sweet fruity-floral fragrance mixed with creamy coconut. So perfect for this brightly colored soap! Here it is in the mold:
And the exciting reveal:
This fabulous soap will be available at Greatcakessoapworks.com on March 8th!
