Oh, happy day! I found out last night that I won the Dandelion Zebra swirl's soap challenge on the Great Cakes Soapworks blog. I'm thrilled! This was my entry.
Thanks heaps, Amy! And Bramble Berry for sponsoring! Christmas craft shows and experimenting for a new retail location won't allow me time to enter this coming month's challenge, but I look forward to rejoining the fun soon! If you have never joined a challenge, I highly recommend it.
Just in case anyone thinks I'm some kind of pro now; here are the pictures of my first attempt at this technique, as I promised.
It was a mess of a batch, albeit salvageable, because a lot of soap oozed out of the freezer paper liner and the texture is odd and spongy. I still like the colors I chose and it had a lot of potential to be gorgeous, but all that aside...there is nothing Dandelion-esque about the swirl! So I'm glad I gave it another try.
However, it is hardening and doesn't zap. So heads-up everyone--there will be a little family over on 10th Ave. smelling of Fruit Loops for a long time to come!
