Tropical Dreams; a hanger swirl soap!

This months' "Soap Challenge Club" [with Amy Warden of Great Cakes Soapworks] challenge was to make a soap using the hanger swirl technique.  We were free to do any sort of hanger swirl; "traditional" with layers and a chevron appearance, drop swirls with a wispy and light appearance, or any sort of shiny new hanger swirl.

I opted for the traditional.  I love the appearance of this technique!  I went for nice bright colours (aren't you surprised?) and a fun fruity-tropical scent.

I used the following colourants: fizzy lemonade, electric bubblegum, and super pearly white all from Brambleberry, neon green from TKB and orange heaven mica from the Conservatorie.  

The fragrance of this batch is Island Nectar from Wholesale Supplies Plus.

Kind of loving the added texture from the glycerin rivers (the "crackled" appearance).  I definitely call this soap a win!
