Erik and Kat Get Swirly!
Kat did back-to-back sessions demonstrating in-the-pot and linear swirling techniques to eager soapers. Erik was her right-hand man.
Kat explains how to get nice swirls while Erik assists. Tip: Use a spatula to pull colors in opposite directions and make sure the spatula is touching the bottom of the mold. For a more detailed swirl, use a reed or skewer to pull the colors in a figure-eight or circular pattern.
First, the in-the-pot swirl in a Log Mold. This soap features 4 colors plus the natural soap for a total of 5 colors.
Then, linear swirling in an 18 Bar Birch Mold. It’s 3 colors plus the natural soap for a total of 4 colors.
If you’ve ever taken a class from Kat, you know she’s a natural at teaching. The sessions were really well done.
Great job, Erik and Kat!
