For those of you who haven’t already guessed, I am really into my soapmaking! I have been a member of an american online soapmaking forum for several years and for the last year or so I have been helping to host soap challenges for the other members. A few times a year I make a challenge video demonstrating a technique for the other users to try. This month I have chosen peacock swirls and you can see my tutorial in the video below.
I chose to make a beer soap using Tribute ale from the local brewery at St Austell and matched my swirl colours with the branding on the beer bottle.
If you are ever down in Cornwall I would recommend a visit to the brewery, it was a really nice day out and our guide was really friendly.
Nicely done!! I joined the forum aaaaages ago but haven’t been on there in a long while. Thanks for reminding me about it – will see you over there 🙂
Looking forward to seeing you over there 🙂
Fantastic! I really like learning new pours! I shall give this peacock swirl a go as soon as everything is settled. Thanks for the tutorial!
Let me know how it works out for you 🙂
Beautiful work with the peacock swirl, love the color combinations.
Does the beer make the soap more sudsy or creamy?
Thanks Judy, I appreciate your lovely comments. The sugar in the beer soap makes the soap a little softer, this makes the bar feel like it bubbles and feels creamier than if it was made without the beer. 🙂
