This time, it is the ‘Holly’ swirl, based on the wonderful technique shared by Holly Bailey of Missouri River Soap Co. To put it simply, the design consists of a swirl within a swirl.
My first attempt at this Challenge gave rise to my ‘Lavender Storm’, swirled with muted black, grey, white and lavender. While very pleased with it, I decided to have another go with brighter colours and a clearer pencil line. This time I chose contrasting red and white, swirled together and poured into a yellow base, topped off with a mica pencil line and a layer of contrasting white (and, of course, much fun to be had in the swirl on the top!). The colours seemed to call out for a citrus-type blend, but with a little extra as well.
I love this silicone mould – I am a total convert to the tall slim soap – so simple to use with excellent results; many thanks to Missy at The Moulds Shop!
Many thanks as well to Amy for the Challenge and to Holly for the inspiration — in Stonesfield.
