Checkered Soapsicles - by Soapylove!
I have made a single colored of a soap pop. How would you like to step it up an notch and create these Checkered Soapsicles by Soapylove. The instructions for this advanced technique appears on Aussie Soap Supplies. I have to admit this reminds me of the floor of a 50's diner such as Johnny Rockets or Taxi's. Or even a checkered flag from Nascar race. If you love this look, then you should take a look at this unique soap. What really interests me about this project is how the author has made the white opaque soap base black. Normally when adding a colorant to white opaque base it would make the soap base into a pastel color or in this case - gray. I took Debbie's class at The Nova Studio and found out that she uses clear soap base and uses black pigment to color her soaps. That makes total sense to me. Really did not even think about it.
