Soap Challenge #1: Zebra Swirl

It’s time for another 4 weeks of challenged from Great Cakes Soapworks!  The first week’s challenge was: Zebra Stripes!  I’ve tried this a couple times before and was never really thrilled with the results I got.  This time was by far the best of the three though I still had some issues especially with the early pouring.  I think my mix was a little too liquid.

Fragrance: Rosemary & Mint

  7. You got the same kind of swirls/valleys that Amy from Great Cakes got–I don’t know if it was the way the soap began to thicken or what, but I love it!

    A lot of the comments I’ve been seeing about the initial pour being too liquidy, don’t worry about it! Just keep going. 🙂 The compression from the additional layers/stripes smooth it out!

    Love this one!
