In the video above, you can see the initial rolling process. Notice that the soap is malleable and though it is quite thick, it rolls with a minimal amount of effort. Unfortunately, this four layer pour is too thick. The thickness is the reason that the soap looks more like an oval, rather than a cute little round.
After the video cuts off, I spent a minute or so massaging the rolled soap into more of a tight, oval shape.
The final soaps are different and unique but the oval shape is not quite what I wanted. Check back tomorrow for photos of the final soap. Plus, we’ll have photos of the same recipe with thinner layers and a clear concise recipe so you can make perfect jelly rolls at home – every time.
