Experimenting with Gradient Soaps

I was first introduce to this soap in Challenge #7 from Amy’s challenges over on Great Cake Soapworks.  You can find my post with pictures here: GREEN GRADIENT

I love the green so much I decided to try it with other colors.  Some were successes, some not as much, but overall I learned a lot and LOVE the technique.

Pink (very very pink)

I LOVE pink. Especially BB’s Bubblegum pink…but even this bar is a bit too much pink for me :D The gradient did work well though.


Purples always worry me. Too often they look muted and I was afraid adding white to my purple would just make it look muted and not good. So I decided to just do part of the batch in gradient and then take a white and deep purple and kind of layer/swirl it for the top portion. I think it made this bar work. If I’d done a gradient all the way I really think it would have been too muted for my liking.


The gray overtook the periwinkle here. Next time I’ll make the periwinkle the more dominate color.


Again the red got a little lost in the orange but I still like this soap.


Overall it worked. I can’t say it’s my favorite of all the ones I tried, but it still looks cool.


This is too muted for me. I wish it was brighter, but it worked really well as a gradient :)

And there you have it.  My experiments doing gradient with different colors.  Now the next challenge is to try a gradient with 3 colors!
