SAVONS FAIT MAIN PAR PROCEDE A FROID *** HANDMADE COLD PROCESS SOAP *** REGLEMENTATION


"Il y a beaucoup à dire à propos du savon. Exactement tout ce qu'il raconte de lui-même jusqu'à la disparition complète, épuisement du sujet. Voilà l'objet même qui me convient. * Le savon a beaucoup à dire. Qu'il le dise avec volubilité, enthousiasme. Quand il a fini de le dire, il n'existe plus."

( Francis Ponge 1967 Le Savon).

SOAP CHALLENGE CLUB : COLUMN POUR SWIRL

Colum Pour swirl  is the study of  the month at the  soap challenge club hosting by Amy and also at LE DEFI DES BULLES2  hosting  by Isabelle in France.  

This technique is about  pouring  the soap over a block to achieve a fun pattern. 


My formula : 

50% Olive oil,   30% Coconut 20% Shea Butter
Water Lye Ratio  2:1
SF 8%
INS 153
Clays : green, yellow, red, pink
Raw cocoa powder.
fragrance : pomme vanille coco

Few pics of the process











after few swirls with a stick ...perhaps I have done too much swirls ...






The soap is still in the mold. Don't know yet how I will cut it tomorrow.
Thanks Amy for the soap challenge.

Update as of today :

O...


Cutted in 3 parts and cleaned ... Marbles 





 close up...




 On the other side ...


Later on , I will cut each soap in 2.

Here is soaps  made by soap blogers in France with this technique at LE DEFI DES BULLES 2 hosting by Isabelle

  1. I love how you offset the blocks! Great idea! I have no idea how you are going to cut it either, but it's a fun heart-shaped mold! :)

    1. Thanks Amy. I think I will cut it in 3 part, then perhaps in 2 for 6 small soaps. It is a silicone mold for cakes that I have never used to bake with.

  2. I love the double blocks idea and how it made a different pattern in your soap. I'm going to have to try that idea. Beautiful!

    (Sorry if this is a repeat comment- I don't think blogger comments work well with Wordpress)
