Remember when the movie Frozen was everywhere? If you have young children, it still may be a huge part of your life! =) These Sparkling Snowdrop Soaps remind me of an ice princess, à la Elsa from Frozen. They are made in the Tall Narrow Wood Loaf Mold to create the skinny shape. The design is created with a mixture of the drop swirl technique and the butterfly swirl made popular by Zahida from Handmade in Florida and Soaps From Home. The top is sprinkled with Snowflake Sparkle Mica and melt and pour embeds for an icy look.
This project does involve advanced techniques and a keen understanding of trace. If the trace is too thin, the colors will muddle together. If the trace is too thick, the white and blue will not swirl properly. The new Sparkling Snowdrop Fragrance Oil does accelerate soap slightly. Add it to the batter at the very last second to avoid a trace that’s too thick. If you’d like to learn more about trace and how to manipulate it, click here.
