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.
