Well, here it is everyone! GROOOVY is cut and curing :) If you wanted to see the making of Grooovy, check it out HERE. Elemental Swirling is an "In The Pot swirl" within an "In The Pot swirl" (like a dream within a dream?). I'm really happy with the way it turned out, as I had never done this swirl before, and rather than do the basics of the challenge, I just HAD to push myself even further with 3 layers! I also "dropped" the layers to break the line definition between them to get a more interesting pattern. As you can see, there is a circular "plop" in the pink layer where I dropped my second layer and I think it looks pretty cool. Other soaps had a more fluid look to them....
See how neat that turned out? The third layer on this soap almost touched the bottom! (the green and purple). Anyway, I've already had a preorder on this one before I even listed it. I scented it with a fragrance called "God's Love", which at first smelled a lot like Twizzlers. Now that it's mellowing, it's more of a baby soft fragrance with a hint of fruitiness. I used a high olive recipe so that I would have plenty of time to play around and mix my individual colors.
So, for the third challenge, it will be mica swirl tops, which will be exciting because I love that look! Check out the Great Cakes Soapworks challenge blog to see everyone's fantastic work!
