Week 3 of Amy's Soap Challenge - Mica Swirled Tops

Well it's now week 3 of Amy's Soap Challenge, this week we have Mica Swirled Tops,I love all these lovely new techniques Amy has found for us.  

This is another new technique for me and I really love the look the Mica gives on top of the soap, it's just so pretty.

I fragranced this soap with Sandalwood and Lavender essential oils, so I wanted it to look rich and luxurious.

For my colors I used New Gold Mica, I'm really happy with how it turned out on top of the soap, but not so happy with the color it gave in the centre, it looks like a pale yellow and I was really hoping the gold would show up more.

The darker color is Umber Mica and this came out really well, it doesn't show so much here, but you can see a bit of sparkle in this darker soap layer.  OK ladies, I can't wait to see all the beautiful goodies you have made this week:)  Thank you Amy for another great challenge.

  23. Thanks so much Amy:) I was lucky that the swirls came out, because my soap was setting up way too quickly, I'll have to be a lot faster next time LOL.
