Sakura Bloom Handmade Soap - Tiger Stripe Pour

Short & Sweet - Since I posted about the tiger stripe pour in my last post, it seemed that I should go ahead and share Sakura Bloom next.  This time, I did actually use the traditional back and forth pour lengthwise from one end of the mold to the other.
Japanese Cherry Blossom, Mimosa Petals, Oriental Woods, warm Vanilla, Tonka Bean and Musk
The pink portion was achieved by mixing neon pink with TD.  For the brown, I simply used my favorite brown colorant: Hershey's cocoa powder.

AvoFresh Handmade Soap - Tiger Stripe

This is such a delightful scent.  The technique I decided to use was a tiger stripe.  However, instead of using the usual back and forth pour down the length of the mold, I poured on just one end of the mold using sort of a modified funnel pour alternating colors with each pour.

The results look quite similar to the tiger strip except that the color pattern in each bar looks completely different from each other where with the tiger stripe, the patterns in each bar tend to be more similar in appearance. 

I suppose that you can also pour directly in the center of the mold to achieve this as well.  The bar in the front was one of the end bars.  It has a very interesting pattern that doesn't quite fit with the other bars. 

Scent: an invigorating blend of Bergamot, Lemongrass and citrus oils
You can't really tell from these pictures, but the white portion has a really nice shimmer!  It was achieved using Snowflake Sparkle mica from NSS.
