Drop Swirl Technique, Cold Process Soap Making, Jan. 2019 Saponification Nation/Soap Challenge, #2





This video shows my technique for making Drop Swirl cold process soap. This is also my entry in the Challenge Club/Saponification Nation Drop Swirl Challenge January 2019. Stick around for the soap cutting. Please turn the volume down and bear with me while I learn to video editing.

Music will be addressed in future videos. No need to comment on that.

This is an advanced soap making technique. If you have never made cold process soap, please research the basics of soap making, especially lye safely. Here is some a video about lye safety. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yR6ttCSrLJI&t=30s
