    When experimentation pays off

    Same technique as the Scooby Doo soap but on purpose this time. It's a bit short but that's because I am losing too much soap in the squirt bottles. I don't have enough piping bags for all the colors. Still, it gives a good effect!

    Scooby Doo soap

    I had to keep my head because my soap had thickened up so much I couldn't use it for what I had planned, so I forged on and got this. I like it! The colors remind me of the Mystery Machine- dating myself, no doubt.

    Hello hello! Welcome to the February Challenge. I do apologize for so dropping the ball last month. I have not been able to get video, which I discovered the night before I was leaving for a long trip because I procrastinated putting the challenge up until the 30th and I left early on the 31st...

    SMF Challenges are currently under construction

    Hello all, We lost half our challenge mods in the last few weeks and we are currently re-tooling. We will have a new panel of hosts and as we get ourselves together, we should be able to have a more set schedule, possibly more notice of the topics but more importantly, fewer disruptions to the...

    Challenge schedule question

    Do people like the monthly schedule of the challenges or do you think that a challenge every other month would be more attractive? Would you be more likely to participate if it were every other month than every month? It has been suggested to run the challenge over two months but we have agreed...

    Using soap dough like polymer clay

    I tried again to use soap like polymer clay. There is a lot of overlap, although I don't think they will ever be completely alike. It takes a long time to do but it's fun to have something new to try. No, this is not what the February Challenge will be. You could use this for the challenge...

    I botched on the September Cahllenge

    Sorry sorry sorry. I was in line to do the September challenge but for some reason I thought I was October. Since it's so late in the month, we will skip the challenge and let everyone rest from furious soap-making, and we will return to our regularly scheduled programming in October. I do...

    Feedback please for a challenge idea

    I am trying to plan my next challenge. I was considering doing a challenge for soaping with thin batter, just past emulsion, which would include both a technique and design, as participants would have to figure out how they want to swirl. Not certain if there is good interest in that or if...
