Brush Embroidery Soap Making my entry for the Soap Challenge Club recipe, timeline, and links listed below video do not forget to protect your skin and eyes when making cold process soap if you like this video or find it helpful, please Like and Subscribe
(and thank you if you do!) -Holly I made the woad blue base soap for this project in a previous video
Link is in the description box below making a small batch
300g total base oils adding the lye to the base oils just blending to a light trace
(so the soap slowly thickens and gives me time to work later) indigo root powder mixed in sunflower oil
1/2 teaspoon per cup of soap activated charcoal mixed in sunflower oil
just a few drops to help darken the blue titanium dioxide in distilled water
1/4 teaspoon per cup of soap I let the soap sit for about an hour to thicken, stirring occasionally. The blue was almost too thick for this technique (I stirred it too much, I think).
The white was the perfect consistency (does not need to be as thick as regular piping soap) wilton piping bags (small, 12 inch) drawing an outline for the leaves first trying a nail art brush which ended up being my favorite
all brush details listed below I have a bowl of water nearby to help keep the brush clean and wet as I go, I am wiping the brush on a towel to remove excess soap the piped soap did have ash the next day. however, it was easily removed with steam after steaming

    I'd give anything to just sit quietly in the room with you when you make soap. A serious bucket list entry.

    Hi Holly, I forgot to ask, would spraying the soap with alcohol before covering & gelling have kept it from getting soda ash? I don't have a steamer so I'm looking for a way to avoid it altogether. If so does it have to be 91-99%? THANKS!
