Leopard Spots Soap

Leopard Spotted SoapThis fourth week was the most challenging for me: really impressed by the leopard spotted soap done by Cee and so happy when Amy announced this technique,  I didn’t expect this week to be so difficult. I tried three times: for the first soap I didn’t calculate well the quantity of the main pot soap, for the second one I was sure I was doing  well until I cut my soap and I realized  that the spots are really too thin.  So yesterday evening I made the third soap  and it was worth it, I would say.Leopard Spot Soap

Made of coconut oil, sesame oil, palm oil, calendula oil (infused in corn oil), olive oil, coconut butter, indigo and annatto powders,  I wanted this soap to be a spring one so I scented it with rosemary and lemon essential oils .Leopard Spotted Soap

I would like to thank Amy for putting all these challenges together and please make sure to visit her Greatcakes Soapworks Blog  and see all the beautiful soaps artisans made during this challenge!

  1. The blue and yellow/orange spots are just perfect. I would like to see the two other soaps also. Can I ask what you used to get the darker part on the top of the soap?

  2. Good for you for sticking with it Nat…it really is a challenge to get the soap thickness just right for these spots. I love the way you reversed some of the spot colors, that’s a really neat effect…great job!!!

  3. I love it Nat,it certainly was worth of keeping trying on this! I wish you added pictures of your first (two) attempts, but this one is enough to sigh here.

  4. They look beautiful Natalia,I love the yellow and blue together and you did so well to get all those spots in, I found it really hard just trying to get a couple in lol.

  5. Wow, these are beautiful. I have never made soap before and would really like to learn how, but I am a bit afraid of the lye. Perhaps I should just leave it to the experts such as you! Thanks

  6. I’m so late in responding, but you did SUCH a great job, Natalia!! Took me 3 tries as well, but I believe it’s worth it too!! So many fun ways to make this design!
