Peacock Swirl Using Natural Colorants

Who doesn’t like challenges? Even if they take time and energy, challenges are something I do with pleasure: there is always something to learn and you can never get bored of them.

When Amy announced her new idea of having each month a challenge, I was really content. The bad part was that I will not be here for the first challenge as we are leaving on holiday (which means no pc, no soap etc). But still I wanted to make this peacock soap as I have never had the time nor the chance to try it. So instead of preparing my luggage I made my peacock soap. The only problem was that I had no special bottles home for this challenge nor that cardboard  but with some imagination, I quickly found the replacements. So instead of those bottles, I used bags ( as used for the leopard spotted soap) and instead of the cardboard with pix, I used a comb which I use when I cut my husband’s hair🙂.

For the colors I used: pink Australian clay, spirulina, yellow ochre and black Australian clay. I was so surprised by this blue shade given by the black clay.
The photo is not the best, I know, but this soap was made in the evening so I had no natural light.
