I've done the tiger stripe before and loved it so I attempted it again using a black raspberry vanilla fragrance. The batter was a bit too fluid to do my fluffy tops so I just swirled it a little.
I used my favorite color combination and I'm so happy with how these turned out. There may be some vanilla in the fragrance oil because my beautiful white is slowly turning to a cream color. It may eventually go darker. The tops ended up being very sticky so I had to trim them off. I kind of like rectangular bars. Sometimes it's nice not to go fluffy.
My next one was going to be a spoon swirl. I had some champagne sugar fragrance oil to try and a new palm free recipe too. I can't wait for it to cure. I thought I would go pastel with this one and bling it up with some glitter. What a fun technique! The soap recipe behaved perfectly too. I used olive, coconut, avocado, castor, and cocoa butter. Gotta have the castor oil in this one! I also used 2% sodium lactate to harden it up and it was a breeze to unmold 12 hours later.
Last, but not least I attempted a tilted tiger stripe. I soaped a little warm and my batter got thick so I had to change up the game plan a little and had to throw in a spoon swirl at the top. I think it turned out great! I picked my color scheme first and then chose aloe vera and cucumber as my fragrance. This would be perfect as a peppermint scented soap too. I could really go for some mint chocolate chip ice cream right now!
I had so much fun making these and have more ideas in my head! No videos for these as I really had no time to talk and made a good mess each time.
