|Family favorite but batter too thick and|
colors are not well mixed.
|Batter too thick but it was an interesting idea|
|First attempt. I love the colors but only|
bar has any shimmy
|Fifth attempt, all bars shimmy but the|
pour is sloppy in places
|Second attempt. One bar has a good|
shimmy but not consistant throughout.
I will come back and insert my sixth attempt later if I don't ruin it by cutting it too soon.
Here is the mold I used for most of my attempts. I really like this mold. I got it from one of our past sponsors, Winding Creek Soap and Supply, for the brush embroidery challenge. I had to modify it with inserts to make it skinny enough to work for this technique.
Here are some pictures from my various attempts:
For my sixth and unfinished attempt, I used a popsicle box for a mold and let my daughter choose the colors. The colors were inspired by the ocean and coral.
Here is the 6th attmpt. Cut a little too soon.
Popsicle box mold bows out quite a lot on
the sides so I end up wasting a lot of soap
trimming the edges straight. I really like these
All batches were hand stired while watching episodes of Perry Mason. I am really curious about that strange art piece on his wall. I think I want that in my kitchen.
I definitely had fun with this technique and I think I am getting the hang of it better. I can't wait to see how that last batch came out! I have decided to submit my purple shimmy. I like it because it has a skinny look that I like and the shimmy is consistant through out the whole loaf.
