This month we are participating in The Great Cakes Soapworks Soap Challenge Club (say that 5 times fast!) you might remember we’ve done this before several years ago. We are ready to get more creative with our soaps and learn new techniques. The Soap Challenge Club is a fun way to do it!

This months challenge is the Fluid Acrylic Pour technique 

This is what the final bar looks like: 


The soap bar is colored with kaolin clay, yellow Brazilian clay and activated charcoal. It is scented with lemon, lavender and rosemary essential oils

This was a new technique and we had some fun with it!

We started with a gray base layer and added circles of the three colors



Using a straw we blew air over the circles to move the colors across the gray layer 

The gray layer set up quicker than we wanted but it added interesting layers to the final cut soap


This is how the soap looked when it was still wet

    Wow, your soap must have stayed really fluid! It looks like it was manipulated with gravity more than air for the top layer. You achieved some really interesting designs in your soap. Love the natural color palette!

    It’s really mysterious looking, like spirits in your soap! Nice job!

    Your natural color scheme looks so inviting and works perfectly with your EO blend. Lovely swirls!

    I had thought about putting in clay but was afraid that it would accelerate the soap. I really like this. Beautiful!
