I saw this challenge and instantly knew I wanted to do a gray/black/white them and a bright shades of pink theme. The problem was I couldn’t come up with a fragrance that seem to meet the color scheme and wouldn’t 1) discolor my white and 2) move to fast for me to work with. I ended up using Green Tea and Cucumber. I didn’t really need MORE bars of this soap (since I just made a batch, but it’s a pretty popular fragrance so I figured I’d be able to sell them). This turned out to be a good soap to work with. It did thicken up the soap a little, but not enough to make it too hard to swirl. And it made it easy to pour a second layer without breaking through the first since it was pretty firm by the time I was ready to pour the second layer!
1) I MADE A MESS making this soap :) eight different colors and pots gets very crowded on the workspace! I broke down and used my dishwasher to clean everything (I NEVER do that!)
2) I am in LOVE with the color scheme I went with. I didn’t leave the base color uncolored. I added some TD to it. I wanted a crisper white than I would have gotten if I hadn’t used color. I’m glad I added the white, makes for a good contrast.
3) It’s this a gorgeous top??? I think it is, but I have a slight obsession with pink! :)
4) Final results: (Warning: Many many many pictures to come was unable to narrow down to one!)
I used Black, White, Dark Gray and Light Gray for the top layer. The two darks and two lights were very similar in color but they came out and if you know what to look for you can see all four colors. I used two bright pinks, a light pink, and white for the bottom. The colors for them stayed pretty distinct too. I’m really happy with it.
