How to make Kabuki Mask


I made this soap for the December 2019 Soap Challenge.  The criteria was to make a soap using only white and black and one accent color.  I chose red.  The technique I used is described in the attached file.  This method was developed by Etsuko Watanabe and I slightly modified her method.  As most soapers know when doing swirl designs there is a quite a bit of luck involved.  That was the case here.  Let me know if you have any questions.










  • Very fine swirl, seems you had the perfect consistency. Beautiful soap, Jerry!

  • Gorgeous! Thank you so much for your detailed explanation of how you created this stunning design, too. These are so well done and incredibly beautiful!
