The Peacock Swirl

For the first month of Amy Warden's "Soap Challenge Club" (SCC) we were tasked with trying the peacock swirl.  I'd wanted to try this technique for a while and just hadn't gotten around to it, so I was pretty happy for it to be the challenge!

I've also wanted to make some "soap porn" (a video of me making soap) for quite a while too... so I knocked out both birds with one stone, so to speak.  

Below is a link to my first video!  I'm sorry about the photo quality of cut bars, its been stormy here and it was simply too dark and gloomy to get better pictures!  And video was out of the question!  I really need to get a better video camera if I decide to keep making soap porn!  You may need to turn your volume up some, the mic on our camera isn't the best, but I assure you that there IS commentary!


Next up: tropical HP, and some fresh and summery CP!

Where oh where have I been?

Well, mostly working!  Either at my job, or around the house.  And at the end of the day I've just been too tired to make soap =(  But I HAVE started to pull together some time for soaping!  I made two batches last week, and will post pictures this week (probably Wednesday).  I've also joined Amy Warden's [Great Cakes Soapworks] soap challenge club (SCC)!  So there will be some neat new techniques popping up every month as well!

Off to work for me now, but looking forward to my 3 days off (Weds-Fri)!  There shall be soap!

Soo... next up: HP citrus bars and the first SCC soap: the peacock swirl!  Look for them later this week... plus pics of "Romancing the Rose" and laundry soap!
