Custom Craft Tools recently sent me an acrylic mold to try out and review. I decided to make a soap with a single layer on bottom and an in-the-pot swirl on top. I really enjoyed using this well-built mold. I especially liked being able to see the swirl as I poured the soap. :)
Thank you for reading my post & watching the video!
This video shows how I made my brush embroidery soap entry for the Soap Challenge Club this month. Thank you so much for watching! :)
I made this soap as the base for my attempts at the Soap Challenge Club‘s brush embroidery technique. Because this video contains all of the information on how I made a woad oil infusion and how I used the woad oil to make the soap, I thought I would break up the process into 2 videos. My brush embroidery video will be posted in the next couple of days. :)
The brush embroidery technique was the focus of this month’s Soap Challenge Club. Brush embroidery is actually a cake decorating technique that has been adapted for soap making. I watched a lot of videos by cookie and cake decorators. It’s amazing what they can do with icing. After finding some inspiration, I decided that I really wanted to use 2 colors to decorate the soap like a cake – on 5 sides – allowing my design to flow around the soap. Well, I didn’t quite get all 5 sides done, but I was able to do at least 3 sides and managed 4 sides on one soap. I colored the soap using an oil replacement of woad infused olive oil and used titanium dioxide and indigo root for my two brush embroidery colors. :)
This is my latest YouTube video on how I created my entry for the Soap Challenge Club Pointy Layers Technique. Thanks again to Teri of Tree Marie Soapworks for teaching us how to make the pointy layers and to Amy Warden for another fun soap challenge!
