Circle Swirled Soap in Column Mold
Brambleberry is launching their latest mold (drum roll), the Heavy Duty Column mold! To celebrate it’s debut, The Soap Queens has a fun and fabulous tutorial that is a twist on the Faux Funnel Pour technique called Circle Swirled Soap. Anne-Marie says this is a great recipe for an alternative to Olive Oil, for those late night soaping adventures where you realize you’re just short of an ingredient and it’s too late to hit up the store. Using contrasting colors in unexpected hues and a bright and fresh fragrance oil blend, Anne-Marie is hoping you like this recipe as much as she does. Just to let you know that this is a project for an intermediate cold process soap maker which should take 45 minutes to make and result in giving you about 12 bars of soap.
I have a B.A. in Mass Communication and took my first melt and pour soapmaking class in 2002. Since then I got hooked making my own bath and products. I have taken various courses in Soapmaking (Melt & Pour, Cold Process, Hot Process), lotion making (lotions, creams, lotion sticks), bath products (bath salts, body scrubs), body products (lip balm, body butters, body balms, whipped butters) and more. Most of all of my classes were taught by Lori Nova of The Nova Studio in Point Richmond, Ca. I have taught courses since 2004 at various locations. I have worked as an Event Coordinator at Michaels Redwood City.
