2nd Attempt at Drop Swirl


Anybody wants to have a yummy chocolatey bath/shower?

 
Made this yesterday for my second attempt at "drop swirling" for the soap challenge by Amy Warden of Great Cakes Soapworks.  I used my usual basic recipe from Everything Soapmaking Book using Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Palm Oil and Castor Oil.

 
I used  "rich chocolate" fragrance oil for the brown batter and "lemon cake" fragrance oil for the white batter.  I am quite pleased with the result, you can see the brown drop swirling into the yellow base but the white swirl with the brown and yellow is not a very impressive color combination.


Pictures below were taken yesterday after I put the batter in the mold:



I still need a little more practice being a little louder and less mumbling while the video is on.  The videos were taken as I was working on the soap and since I don't do a lot of planning for long beforehand, there's a lot of talking to myself.  Please mute and fast forward as you please.
 
ENJOY!

    1. Thank you Taylor. It felt so much better when the batter really did what was expected. Excited about Majestic Mountain Sage being the sponsor for this challenge. I still have to try your projects.

    1. They do smell very good Cee. The hubby came home and said it smells great. The brown is getting darker as well which is what I was hoping for.
