Clyde Slide Attempt

My First Clyde Slide Attempt

One of my all time favorite soap makers, would have to be Clyde Yosheda !
I love his style, how he goes over his color pallets and his unique soaping methods and etc. Yes, I watch all of his videos on YOU TUBE !!!
I have always wanted to try his Clyde slide so I thought I would give it a whirl.

Here it is.....

 Below: Picture of soap top with a little bit of Gold Sparkle Mica.

I used recipe/formula consisting of:
Olive Oil, Palm Oil, Coconut Oil, and Sweet Almond Oil.

When my oils were emulsified, I divided my batter into containers to be colored.

My main pot was my White soap base.
Contrasting colors were:
color #1 - Forest green mica with just a touch of  titanium dioxide
color #2 - Purple mica with titanium dioxide
color #2 - Dark Purple created by mixing Purple mica with just the smallest touch of Blue ultramarine colorant.

Scent: I added Blackberry Sage from Brambleberry, which is an Awesome scent!
By this point my soap batter had thickened a little much (medium trace).
So, I had to pour my contrasting colors in layers into the main pot quickly but I really like the affect it gave.
I will be trying this one again in the near future, with a light trace.

Have you made the Clyde Slide before, If so I would love to hear your experiences if you would like to share.
