Current Challenge

Registration is NOW CLOSED.  It will re-open for the June challenge on June 5th.  Sign up to be notified as soon as it does.

NEW for April, May and June:

These three challenges will be divided into two brand new categories: JURIED and VOTED.  Winners in the voted category will be chosen by the votes of the members of the Club that month.  Winners in the juried category will be chosen by a panel of five jury members, one of whom will be the sponsor of that category.  The other four jury members will be Tatiana Serko of Creative Soap by Steso, Jelena Vasiljeva of Soap Techniques, Kenna Cote of Modern Soapmaking, and myself.

June Challenge – Ombre Soap – Difficulty Level Moderate/Advanced

Ombre soap by Amy Warden

The ombre soap challenge will include any technique you wish to accomplish with the ombre pattern of dark to light or light to dark.  I will demonstrate how I made the above soap in the video tutorial and give lots of tips and ideas on how to create your own. This challenge is open to any soapmaker who wishes to join.  There is no special equipment or ingredients required.

Sponsor for Juried Category: Elements Bath & Body, Sponsor for Voted Category: Mad Micas

Prizes for both categories:

Grand prize: $100 gift certificate
Second place: $75 gift certificate
Third place: $50 gift certificate
Sponsor’s Choice: $25 gift certificate

UPDATED Deadlines: Registration Jun 5-12, blind link-up* Jun 12-21, visual link-up** Jun 21-24, voting Jun 25-28, winners announced Jun 29

Even if you don’t end up participating, you will still receive the tutorials – and you still get to vote in the voted category!

**visual link-up = the entries will be visible in the order they were submitted, and you will be able to see your entry as soon as you submit it.
