This is for a soap challenge I got myself into. The mission is to incorporate 3 ingredients into our soap plus one assigned tool to create the look. In this specific challenge we had to use egg, milk and sugar in making our soap. That's not hard at all, I've used all 3 so many different times. The hard part is the tool I was assigned to create my look. I got a rolling pin... This is the soap I created with all the circumstances:
I had 7 days to complete my look. I don't know why on earth I had to make it so complicated. This took me 9 days! I didn't make my deadline… sigh.
This was a 3 stage process. The first pour was to make 3 different color soap. Then I take them out to roll with THE assigned rolling pin when they are only 24 hours fresh.
I had to use lots of saran wrap to prevent fresh soap from sticking to my wooden rolling pin. A lot of people thought I made the soap roll with melt & pour soap. But I think fresh cold process soap is actually easier to manipulate, I can mold it to anything I like until I'm satisfied with it. and yes, I got a little OCD, took me the whole night to roll out 3 identical sheets of soap...
Stage 2 is to insert this rolled soap into a vertical column mold then pour the second batch of soap.
Final stage is to take the soap roll out when it's hard enough (the next day) and whip up a small batch to drizzle on top then sprinkle some sugar pearl together with glitter.My hard work paid off! These are literally hand cut, with a kitchen knife because of its round shape and all that random drizzle. You should see the last piece, so slanted, LOL
They are so totally adorable! But, I swear, I will never ever do this again! Forget it! This really pushed my patience to the tipping point. Remember my Rainbow Cake Soap from last year? I don't know which one is worse. If you wonder what rainbow soap I was talking about see this post: Rainbow Cake Soap Fun
