Welcome back to week 2 of Great Cakes Soapworks Soap Challenge. This week the challenge was to do an Elemental Swirl. This challenge made me nervous and excited at the same time. Nervous because I have never attempted anything like this before and the fact that timing is everything. I certainly didn’t have time to procrastinate. I was worried that my soap batter was going to thicken way too quickly and that it wouldn’t work out. I used a fragrance oil that I had never soaped with before (which really isn’t a good idea when trying something new – especially with swirls). It worked in my favour, to my relief! I had to pre-plan everything out. It took me awhile to decide on which colours to use. Excited because I have seen this technique before and wanted to try it but too nervous too! LOL. So it is a good thing for this challenge, as I probably wouldn’t have attempted this on my own.
