This month we had a guest speaker, Tatsiana Serko of Creative Soap by Steso. The basic idea for this soap is to create circles of soap inside an outline of a contrasting color. This one is done in a slab mold. A smaller slab mold would have helped me out a bit to have less space to fill up. In all I had three tries at this challenge. I found my results interesting if not as clearly defined as the sample soaps in the tutorial.
Once the oils and lye were mixed I divided the soap into a 1:4 ratio. The smaller number being the outline color and the larger number for the inside of the circles.
Now to wait another day or two to cut the bars, pick which one will by my entry for this challenge and upload the photo....
And the soap is cut. I did bevel the edges and plane the tops, These are now on the curing racks.
I ended up with the last batch, Morningside Lane. I love the bright look and the uplifting blend of peppermint and eucalyptus. This soap will be prefect for those mornings when you need a quick wake-up call in the shower to get your day going!
Thank you again to Amy for your wonderful soap challenges!
