I tend to get stuck on one color for soaps. For a while there I was using a lot of green, and then I gravitated to pink, and now I am seeing Blue!
This first soap I used very little Omega Blue. I did not want a deep blue, but I also did not want the grey, pastel blue that I get from the blue mica that I have on hand. I used Nature’s Garden “Clean Type” soap, which is a really nice delicate fresh scent.
For the swirl I decided just to drop the soap randomly through out and then used a spoon for the swirl. It turn out really nice.
Now, this is the one that I am really in love with. I think I am going to call it “Deep Blue Sea”. I love the blue. I used Ultramarine and it’s just gorgeous!
At first I was thinking of doing a mantra swirl for this. I even set the mold and poured the soap. But once I removed the dividers I decided to try something different. I took a combination of a small spoon and chopstick to swirl the soap. I think the results are pretty cool!
I am doing a happy dance!
I used Lunar Eclipse fragrance oil which has notes of:
Mid: Carnation, Tuberose, Orchids, Hydrangea, Calla lily
Base: Vanilla, Oak Moss, Tonka Bean
I hope to update you on my recent experience with my flower piping. I recently unmolded and cut my first soap batch and will post the pictures soon.
