Clyde Slide – Soap Challenge

How exciting! This is my first blog post and first Great Cakes Soapworks – Soap Challenge Club entry as well! Β  πŸ˜€ Someday, I’ll try to make this blog a little prettier but just getting started and needed a place to enter the challenge.

I tried 4 times to get feathering in my Clyde Slide soap-challenge-club-logo230soap.

Here is the one that gave me the most feathers!

Attempt # 1 - I like the pattern but no feathering

Attempt # 2 – I got some feathering in this one but the soap was crumbly and chalky

Attempt # 3 – I poured in 3 spots in the bowl before pouring this soap, looks pretty cool but still no wispy feathers…
Finally, the feathering I was looking for!

I used You’re Turning Violet Violet, Lounge Lizard, and Pot O’ Gold Micas along with Black Raspberry Vanilla fragrance oil in the final soap.

  1. April, You did Fantastic My Soapy Friend!! What are you talking about? ALL Your Soap in my book look amazing and I would of been proud to of entered any of them. Ya, you did good. Its too bad that I was one minute late with my submission, so I will look forward to next time.
