Défi des Bulles

I have joined another challenge ! Isabelle from ‘Elle bulle’ announced some weeks ago the beginning of a new soap challenge. I love them and I hope I can make the time for all of them.
The 1st challenge was ‘inclusion soap’, using spirulina as natural color and urucum and cacao powder( insclusions).

Savons avec inclusionsThere are so many beautiful soaps on her blog, it’s worth visiting and having a look at all of them.
The 2nd week the challenge was tunnel, a technique I discovered last year during Amy’s challenges. This year I wanted to use a triangle to make my swirl and the problem is that I couldn’t find anything home which I could use. On the last moment, I decided to cut a laundry soap with a triangle shape🙂. This is a lovely challenge as long as your soap has the right trace. In my case, because I used natural colourants, I had some problems with the yellow clay and I had to stop at a certain moment, so my soap is kind of thin. As a whole, I think it’s not too bad.Column swirl

As colourants I used: indigo, Australian red clay, yellow clay, zinc oxide.

I want to thank Isabelle for her input into this challenge.

  1. They are gorgeous, Nat! Splendid! The column technique is on my to-do-list, as soon as I find a convenient mould (better say a container). Bravo, girl, colours are amazing and I love the spirulina green! I admire your talent for taking pictures,too!

    • Can’t wait to see your soap, Maja! You know, I am glad I joined this chalenge, otherwise I woudn’t have tried this technique😉

  2. I am always amazed how you’re very creative with natural colorants. I love the color combination of both soaps! Now I want some of that indigo…🙂

    • Oh, I am glad you like this spirulina soap, Jenny! But I will have to try this type of soap again, as my soap is far from the results I was hoping🙂.

  3. Fantastic colours again Natalia – I particularly like the inclusion soap. I know I keep saying it but your use of natural colours really is inspirational.
