Great Cakes Soapworks - Soap Challenge Club: MULTI-COLOURED GRADIENT SOAP


I've been wanting to take part in the Soap Challenge Club challenges organised by Amy Warden of Great Cakes Soapworks ever since they began sometime around May but there have been constant obstacles every time I wanted to and  I simply couldn't participate. Luckily for me, I managed to register for the September challenge and was sure I'd have enough time to 'practise until perfect' and then present the results of my very best attempt .... BUT as luck would have it, tons of things got in the way again and I only managed to make my soap last night!!
 Which is why it is still soooo soft and 'mushy' looking in the pics. It was bit of a challenge for me - I can't say it was easy, but I'm pretty happy with the whole 'gradient' effect and the way it's turned out.





The tutorial was very helpful! I chose a green-yellow-orange gradient, but because my green started out really dark, it needed A LOT of yellow and I ran out before I could get the 'right' shade! Oh well, here's hoping for the best - I certainly would love to win the Nature's Garden $50 gift certificate and FINALLY get to buy some of thier products, but then again, who wouldn't? I've had a look at the other fabulous gradient soaps .... the competition is going to be tough :) !


Good luck to ALL fellow participants - may the best soaper/soap win :).





P.S. It's been raining cats and dogs in my part of Poland and with the dark cloudy weather outside the colours all seem to have come out a little dull. Or perhaps I'm just a poor photographer ;).
