The Great Cakes Soapworks May Challenge is a teardrop soap. Intriguing, yes?
I used a Bastille recipe that I know traces slowly as the success of this look depends on the batter being fluid through the pour. I didn’t get any photos during the pouring since I was pouring and didn’t stop to snap pics. I poured about a third of the plain soap, then poured s l o w l y, tiny little strips of color layered over each other. After the colors are layered, you simultaneously and s l o w l y pour the rest of the plain batter down each side. With luck, you’ll get a raindrop or teardrop in the middle of the soap.
I used Mad Oils Maniacal Pea green mica, Vibrance Teal and Purple from Nuture Soap. The white batter is the natural color from the oils. Scented with Energy from Majestic Mountain Sage. Three of my favorite suppliers! The soap is made with olive oil, coconut oil and castor oil…simple and awesome.
This looks like a raindrop to me, so Alaska Raindrop it is.
