Twinkle Soap

I have practiced making soap using a new pouring technique.  It is called a tall skinny shimmy method.  Basically the soap batter is divided into 6 different containers and colored 6 different colors.  One by one, the soap is poured into a tall/skinny mold, along the long side of the mold while the mold is tilted.  The mold is moved and tilted the opposite direction with each pour.  The complete amount of each color is used when it is poured.  With this technique you get a bar of soap which is 6 different colors.  This technique is the November soap challenge for Great Cakes Soap Works Challenge.  My soap batter was a little too thick to do this method well, but the soap came out interesting.  I used mica to color the batter.  A light pink mica, a dark pink mica, a combination of both pink micas, a light green mica, a dark blue mica, and a combination of the green and the blue micas in the last one.  I also added jojoba beads in the pink colors. I swirled all of the 6 batters for some interest.  I found the green and the blue micas were not stable in cold process soap.  They came out gold colored.  Even though the colors morphed, the soap came out pretty.

 What have you been working on lately?
