How to scare your neighbours - a soap tutorial. Mantra swirl

Mantra 0713 soap club-012  Mantra 0713 soap club-013  Mantra 0713 soap club-018

I that time again - you guessed it, soap club challenge. This month Any from Great Cakes soapworks decided we would learn the Mantra Swirl technique. I have done this before but not with any great success.  You can see my attempts here, here and here.

I guess with anything you do often enough you will become better at it. This doesn't seem to be the case with me and Mantra. I love the look and the idea so I will keep trying but I think my colour choice is a problem. I also think that I need to take a risk and pour the soap mix when it is a little runnier.

See the video on YouTube here.
