Experimenting with color is one of my favorite aspects of making soap. The possibilities for color variations and combinations are endless. Starting this Monday, June 27th, I will be celebrating all things color with a “Soap the Rainbow” series on the blog and Instagram. The series also includes two awesome contests!
Each week (Monday through Sunday) will represent a color in the rainbow. “Red week” starts this coming Monday, June 27th, followed by orange, yellow, green, blue and purple week. Each Thursday, I will share a tutorial for the color of the week. Some of my favorite soapy bloggers will also be sharing a tutorial on their blog or YouTube channel each Wednesday. I can’t wait to see their amazing projects.
That’s where the contest comes in! Post a soapy photo that features the color of the week with the hashtag #SoaptheRainbow on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. You can post as many photos as you like each week. I will share several of my favorite photos that feature the color of the week on the Bramble Berry Instagram account. The featured soapers will win a $10 Bramble Berry Gift Certificate. That’s more than 20 gift certificates up for grabs, so it’s time to start snapping and sharing photos of your soap! I urge you to post photos that correspond with the color that week to increase your chance of winning. =)

- The winner will be contacted via email. If the winner does not respond within 48 hours, a new winner will be chosen.
