I just cut this neon swirl soap today and I am so pleased with how it came out!
I used the hanger swirl technique which is also this month’s soap challenge technique. I have been off-line lately (busy with school, travel and family issues) and I was looking to get back into experimenting with soap design. I was also excited to play with my new hanger tool from Michelle at the Great Soap Shop on Etsy.
I used a Bastille recipe (80% olive oil and 20% coconut oil) with 4 different neon pigments. The soap was scented with a sweet orange fragrance.
I did another hanger swirl soap before this one but was underwhelmed with the results. This time, I tried a different variation – I pulled the hanger vertically up and down the soap after pouring the 4 colors. I then did a Taiwan swirl on the top. Here is the soap after it was just poured into the mold.
Here is the soap after it was cut. I love how each bar has a different design. Some soaps are more yellow and while others are more magenta or blue.
Thanks Amy for another fun challenge! I look forward to seeing the other hanger swirl designs. 🙂
