thank youThat’s awesome. Go to post #75 in this thread ( I think that was the last entry) copy and paste and add your name to the bottom of the list.
ThxI think the term “blob” just refers to the shape you get with each pour.
Beautiful' love the colors too.
I attempted @ Tall & Skinny Shimmy today the loaf is getting happy lol im excited to see if its worthy of entry' if not I try again.Ive decided to use the corrugated plastic mold Ive already used in my other post. Its easier then trying to make a new mold.
I too wish I could layer like that. And brilliant job on the color combo!!I throw my hands up in defeat! The soap I made yesterday has no shimmy Nice layers, but no shimmy. I think I could do it if I had a helper whose job would be to turn the mold.
How do you spell that again?I use for Ione swirls
Thats BeautifulSoooo....I think I’m gonna try one more time. This is my second try. The first one I had a mold fail. I used the tall skinny wood mold from NS. I thought I had bought the silicon liner with it but I hadn’t so it’s 2.5 inches wide which I think makes a difference in the amount of shimmy. Then, as to not waste materials I had the brilliant idea to make the mold shorter so I made a cardboard divider and inserted it to make it 7 inches long. Well, all went well until the very last pour when the divider gave way and everything gushed underneath it. Second attempt, pictured here I shored up the divider with some clamps. This time it held, but quite a bit of batter Still leaked underneath. Ugh! So I’m gonna try one more time and maybe do as @sunnysuds did with some cardboard along the sides of the mold to make it skinnier. This is a difficult technique. A lot to take into consideration and prep but I love the challenge so maybe third time will be the charm!
Very PrettyOk. Not a good shimmy, but definitely not a soapy fail. It looks way better in person lol. It hardened up a bit after it cooled down lol. I still couldnt wait to see it, so i cut a few bars.its clean up-able lol.
its a keeper, just not for the challenge
Oh no, earlene! I'm bummed with you. Maybe you could do volume measurements just for the challenge (I think I read where you've done this before...)? bummmmmmmmmed.As it turns out, my travel scale wasn't working, so I checked the batteries. They had leaked inside, so I cleaned that up as best as I could, but had to shop for replacement batteries, which I was too tired to do the days of long driving. When I finally got the new batteries I was raring to go, but it still didn't work. I tried cleaning it again to no avail. Guess that scale is ruined. Ah well. I went on a search for a decent scale to take it's place, but with so little time and so few options in the stores I went to, I gave up. There just wasn't enough time to find a replacement scale and make this soap while still on the road. I am bummed!
I am loving the entries so far, though. Beautiful, linne1gi, dibbles & Jersey Girl.
OMG Bummed my soap turned out Dry & Crumbly' it was hard to cut too, maybe I didn't SB good enough cause the soap looked oily in the cups after I separated & add'ed color, also on my SB the batter was separating. I'll try again, hopefully I can come up w/ a half decent shimmy design.I attempted @ Tall & Skinny Shimmy today the loaf is getting happy lol im excited to see if its worthy of entry' if not I try again.
