That's a bit how I was feeling when I read the email announcing Amy's latest challenge - the Colour Challenge. I haven't been able to take part in many of Amy's challenges in the past year, but here was the perfect opportunity for me to truly engage in the Simple Pleasure of making handmade soap again- just for the fun of it. And the best part was that I finally had the chance to use my new soap mold, purchased for me by my wonderful siblings who wanted to help me celebrate my 'big' milestone birthday (another 2014 event) - Essential Depot's Silicone soap mold with stainless steal stackable basket. Oh how i love this mold!!
Anyway, the Challenge - to create a soap using at least 3 colours from a chosen palette from Design Seeds using either synthetic or all natural colourants.
I started with the 'summer setting' palette:
And this is what I came up with:
|Summer Setting Colour Challenge using micas and oxides|
|Fork Swirled first layer|
|Ready to be sprayed and swaddled|
|Freshly cut soap|
I'm totally ready for the next challenge! Thanks once again, Amy, for the inspiration!
