Tiger Stripe Soaps

Some time ago I made 2 batches of cold-process soap using a tiger stripe technique. I believe sometimes it's called zebras stripes.

The first one is my Ocean soap, with blue and white stripes. I'm pretty happy how it turned out:
soap technique - Tiger Stripes

soap technique - zebra Stripes


The next soap is multi-colored and it's scented with Pomegranate and black currant from Brambleberry. It looks a bit different but it was made using the same technique.

    1. Thank you very much, Madame Propre! For each stripe I measured and poured equal amounts of colored soap.

  3. Your blue colours are beautifully matched too. I lobe blue, but I find it hard to l
    Mix them together. This is a great success !

  4. How did your pour the soap into the mould for the second set of bars if you don't mind sharing please? I love the feathery effect you have achieved.

    1. Claire, I poured it exactly the same way as the blue soap. The only difference is that each line is so thin that they create this feathery effect.

    1. Thank you, Mark! The soap was made in a log mold and then cut vertically, as usual.

  10. lovely -- just wondering did you pour from the center of your log mold, or did you pour from just one corner? or from both corners at the same time? do you mind sharing?
