Do you enjoy a challenge? For the Soap Challenge Club this month, the technique is called "Negative Space Embedding". This involves pouring a main soap base which is then cut or divided so that new soap can be poured into the spaces. It's the opposite of embedding solid pieces of soap into new soap!
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 the negative space embedding technique, and vote for the ones that demonstrate the most creativity or best design. The grand prize winner will receive a $50 gift certificate from Brambleberry, PLUS a Custom Soap Stamp from Alex Kelly!
Second & third place winners in each category 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, plus some sort of cutting tool (could be a round pipe, or similar object - the shape of the holes is up to you!). You can use either a log mold or a slab mold for this technique.
