Holly Swirl Challenge

So this month’s attempt turned out much better than last months…but it still had it’s problems.  Mainly me not thinking :-P.  I wanted to swirl blue and yellow…the problem with that was when you mix blue and yellow you get green!  So the color theme didn’t quite end up how I wanted.  That said I still think it’s a pretty neat looking soap.

I also tried a modified version of the challenge.  I embedded a heart on the bottom and then poured a swirled soap into that (and didn’t do a top layer).  I really liked that soap.

Two new soaps!  It was fun and I’ll use this technique again for sure!

    The embed + swirl makes a really cool effect. How did you get that blue-green, if you don’t mind me asking?

    Bramble Berry’s Aqua CP Lab Color or TKB Trading Coral Reef Blue will give you the teal color.
