Soap Challenge Club- Taiwan Swirl

I love soap challenges! Anything that gives me an excuse to break out with my soaping oils and spatulas is a GOOD thing. That's why, I was super excited to hear that the new Great Cakes Soapworks Soap Challenge Club's challenge was the…

 *DRUM ROLL*

 TAIWAN SWIRL!!!!

      Never heard of the Taiwan Swirl? You will LOVE it. It's easy to do, yet makes a remarkable bar of soap that looks like it took ages to create.

      For my SCC (That's "Soap Club Challenge") soap, I went with a CK-One dupe fragrance oil. It had great reviews, reminded me of being a preteen, and was a slow-moving fragrance. All of these great attributes made it the PERFECT fragrance oil for what I was trying to do. I figured that a clean, refreshing palette of crisp white, bright blue, and black would do this unisex fragrance justice. I love the results.
Want to see how I did it? No worries! I made a video! ;)

    1. Thank you, Sophia's Naturals! I was hoping to keep the colors as "unisex" as possible. Figured blue was good for everyone. :D

    1. Perfectly beautiful!!! After watching a lot of Taiwan swirl videos, the most difficult part looks like getting the dividers. Some use cardboard or plexiglass but all have a hard time keeping dividers in place. Any help on this?

  16. You did a fantastic job. My husband was walking by and saw your soap on the computer and said he wanted me to try that technique. (He usually ignores all of my soaping) It is soooo beautiful! Did you make the inserts? I don't know if I could figure that part out. Can I buy them somewhere?
