New Technique Results

I’ve been in my soap room working on a new technique I’ve recently learned about.  I wanted to share the photos of my results with everyone.

My first batch was scented with Bubble Gum Phthalate Free fragrance oil.  It’s still a little soft…. but I couldn’t WAIT to cut it!

Artisan Soap with Swirls

The swirls came out pretty nicely considering it was my first go around.  I’m used to cold process where the swirling is a little easier.

 And with these test batches I’ll be able to use up some fragrance oils I’ve got floating around!  Create some more space  so I can fill them up with …. more oils, of course!  😉

My recipe used a good amount of Olive oil.  That would explain the green tint to my bar.  I didn’t have any titanium dioxide mixed and ready so I left that portion alone, but I did want to incorporate a red for the “bubble gum”.    Specifically,   I wanted to test my coloring and swirling technique.  I’m pretty happy with the outcome.  However, I know that I can do better with a little practice.  Now,  I wonder what I’m going to try with my second batch.  Hmm…
