Do you enjoy a challenge? For the Soap Challenge Club this month, we are doing in-the-pot swirls! I was challenged to make a NINE color swirl for the tutorial, so that's what I did for the soap you see in the photo. Participants can swirl just one color into another if they wish. This is a great technique for beginners and advanced soapmakers alike!
This membership will grant you access to a private instructional video and written instructions during the month of the challenge, demonstrating how I made the soap in the photo with plenty of helpful tips and ideas on how to make your own. (Please note that the Soap Challenge Club is open to any soapmaker who chooses to join. Members will be expected to have a basic knowledge of how to make cold-processed soap.)
In addition, members will be able to submit their own soaps made with in-the-pot swirls, and vote for the ones that demonstrate the most creativity or best design. The grand prize winner will receive a $50 gift certificate from Nature's Garden, PLUS a $25 coupon code good for anything in the makermolds etsy store by Nicci Yeo!
Second & third place winners will receive free registration for next month's Soap Challenge Club! Only members of the Club will be able to vote for the winners. In order to enter your soap in the challenge, it must be made after you register for the Club.
Materials needed: Basic soapmaking supplies, including at least 3 different colorants. You can use either a log mold or a slab mold for this technique, but the swirls tend to look best in a log mold.
