Rainbow Sherbert Peacock was born! This soap is scented with Rainbow Sherbert fragrance oil from Nature's Garden, and it smells good enough to eat!
Okay, now the process....
First, I had to get all of my supplies together:
I used micas and titanium dioxide from The Conservatorie to color my soap. The marbling rake was made using curler picks and a piece of cardboard. I liked the look of a tightly swirled peacock swirl, so I spaced mine closer together. :)
I mixed up a slow-moving soap recipe to give myself time to work with the swirl, lined a pizza box (I wanted a lot of room to work), and then got all of my colors into my squeeze bottles. Poured the majority of my soap batter (colored with TD) into the box, and then took a deep breath...
It was time to start squeezing and marbling. I went crazy with the colors, but also squirted some white to help define the swirls.
Above is a picture before using the rake and doing the "S" swirls...
And now (above) here is the photo AFTER swirling. I am now SUCH a fan of this technique and really can't wait to try it again!
After a day of drying, it was ready to cut and shoot.
