Soap Challenge--faux funnel swirl

I've been hoarding a little bottle of one of the most delish scents ever, Ginger Lime.  This week seemed the perfect time to break it out.  And yay, my faux funnel swirl did justice to it!



I used turmeric for the yellow, cocoa for the brown, and chromium oxide for the green swirls.  These earth tones are so "me" and I am one happy girl.  Beg and plead all you want, but I won't be parting with several bars of this batch...
Want to see some more awesome faux funnel swirls?  Take a peek here.

  15. Thanks for all your nice compliments! Ginger Lime is a must for all you who haven't tried it and then you'll be a big fan, too! I've started playing around with natural colorants now that I'm low on many of my other ones. But it's been a good "challenge" for me--I've been really pleased with many that I've tried!
