Spinning Swirl Challenge!

i took the challenge!  Well sorta, lol. I didn’t officially enter the official challenge but I was so fascinated by everyone’s submissions I had to try it myself!!!

I have a small slab mold that I haven’t used in ages. I made a small batch of my usual goats milk soap recipe and divided it into 4 containers. Each container had a different mica infused oil: pink, yellow, blue and one was left natural.  I poured each color alternately until I used all my batter and then started spinning. It’s really not so much the spinning that does the swirl but the stopping!

After 24 hours of dying to unmold the time finally arrived last night!

They are much smaller than my normal bars (3-4 oz bars) but I’m overjoyed at how they look!  Such a fun challenge!!!


About soapsnstilettos

I started on this adventure in soap making as a way to become involved in my daughter's life. She had started her little goat farm and I had found goats milk soap on a trip I went on with my best friend Michele. I thought, "Hey! I've got goats, they've got milk, I could do this!" Well it wasn't exactly that easy but now I'm addicted! I formulate all of my soaps with my friends and family in mind and once you get a bar of my soap you are instantly my friend! Come follow all the craziness in my life and learn about my soaps too!
