Tall and Skinny Shimmy Soap Technique

After a busy week spent with the grandmother, yesterday, finally, I had this beautiful idea of trying this month technique. I usually do several tries, and I am very engaged but yesterday evening , after making my 1st batch of soap, I just couldn’t do any more. The news that broke through was terrible. Terrible was also…

Alternative Liquid Soaps

It’s been a long time since I last made a challenge soap but when I saw that Amy is organizing a challenge concerning natural colorants, I immediately thought that this would be interesting to participate. The theme was something I love: alternative liquids. So bye-bye water and think of something different to make your soap….

Squeeze Bottle Technique

This months challenge was Squeeze Bottle Designs,  a technique I had never heard about before. I like finding out about new techniques, especially when I have to put them in practice. As for Amy, the technique was first demonstrated on Sirona Springs blog by Ruth Esteves. So this month’s challenge is to make a design…

Holly Swirl …Again

 This is my 2nd soap made for The Holly Swirl Challenge. I was in the mood for flowers, so I added some rosebuds on top: beautiful in every way, roses are the perfect flowers. I don’t know if it is due to the new mold I use (Coprah mold from Saponine), but lately I really…

Holly Swirl

Since I received the Saponine mold, making soaps is more than a simple pleasure. I can’t wait making my mantra swirl soap using this mold, but in the meantime, I subscribed to the Amy’s monthly challenge. This month’s soap challenge at Great Cakes Soapworks was the Holly Swirl, a modified in-the-pot swirl method and so…

Mantra Swirl

I decided to take part in Amy’s Great Cakes Soapworks Mantra Swirl Challenge. For those who are not familiar with this challenge club: each month Amy organizes a new challenge where we try a different soap technique. Interesting, as we get to improve our soapmaking skills. What is different from the other challenges Amy already…
