Soap Challenge #9: Peaked Tops

I’m back.  Yes I sat out last week.  I’ve made salt bars before and I’m just not a fan of them so I spent the week working on restocks I need of other soaps.

Now on to this week’s challenge!  Oh my word!  May I just say my soap was being difficult this week.  Every batch I made refused to get thick.  I finally got my Black-Raspberry & Vanilla batch to get thick enough for me to do some small peaked tops (note key word is “small” here).

The soap just wasn’t thick enough for it to hold the peaks.

I still like how this soap came out, even if the peaks aren’t prominent.

Probably one of the best bars of the entire batch (peak wise).

As you can see in the pictures I also layered this soap and embedded hearts in the top later…that made doing the peaks a bit more difficult too.  Overall I think it’s a cute soap and I’ll definitely keep the technique in mind for future batches.

Black Raspberry Vanilla :)

    I just love the little hearts !!! I’ve never tried Black Raspberry Vanilla, but it seems to be a favorite of a lot of people, so I’ll add it to the wish list. Your purple is just beautiful, Jennifer!

    Great job, Jennifer! The tops turned out great, and I really like the embeds. Your colors and swirls are just beautiful! This is one of my favorite scents, too. How did you get those wave-like swirls in each layer? Do you mind sharing your technique? I totally want to try this! :)

  12. Jennifer Marie Hofmann says:

    Thank you everyone! Katy, I pour the first layer (purple) then I pour the second layer (white). I take a dowel (you can use different sizes) and pull the stick down and up moving through the the batch. Then I pour the third layer and do the same technique.
