Gradient Soap Challenge

This month I joined the soap challenge from Great Cakes Soapworks. This months challenge was to make a gradient soap using 3 colors. This was my first time entering the soap challenge and my first time making a gradient soap! It actually went really well. The fragrance is Cedarwood Sage. I planned everything out, printed out the instructions. I even wrote down on paper my layers so I wouldn't get things mixed up. For the soap I used green, yellow and orange for a fall color theme. I also used just a sprinkle of glitter on the top of the soap. Here are some pictures I put into a collage. This is the beginning stages of the soap, from mixing colors to layering, to the plops on top! I did leave out some of the layering pics but you get the point.

This next set of pictures are when the soap has hardened, before I cut the soap in it's loaf form and then the cut bars. For this gradient soap I used colorants from TKB, all my other supplies used are from Bramble Berry, Wholesale Supplies Plus & Natures Garden.

And here is the final product! All in all I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I wish that the layers were just a tad more pronounced but I'm pretty proud of it!
