February – Collaborator Challenge – Difficulty: Beginner!
In February, I am bringing back the Collaborator Challenge! This is a super fun time where members get to teach a family member or friend who has never made soap before to create their entry (age 18 and up)! My friend Rebble has agreed to do this with me for the tutorial (that’s us in the photo). Instead of regular and advanced categories, you can choose between a drop swirl or triple mica lines. You will be required to have a photo of your entry soap, as well as a photo of your collaborator pouring the soap linked to your entry from a social media or blog post. We have a new sponsor for this event: Formulator Sample Shop! They will provide gift certficate prizes for the members, and the Challenge Club will provide equal gift certificate prizes from Amazon for the collaborators in both categories.
Grand Prize: $50 gift certificate
Second Place: $35 gift certificate
Third Place: $25 gift certificate
Sponsor’s Choice: $20 gift certificate
Deadlines: Registration Feb 3-10, submissions open Feb 10-24*, voting Feb 25-28, winners announced Feb 29.
March – Clam Shell Technique – Difficulty: Intermediate
Deadlines: Registration Mar 2-9, submissions open Mar 9-23*, voting Mar 24-27, winners announced Mar 28.
April – (No soap challenge this month! I will be competing in Bloodbath and attending the HSCG conference in Connecticut. Hope to see you there!)
Even if you don’t end up participating, you will still receive the tutorials – and you still get to vote in both categories!
*submissions are blind during the entire process so you won’t be able to see your entry or any of the other entries in the link-ups
