Landscape Design - Eiffel Tower

This month at Amy Warden's soap challenge we had to make landscape designs. This soap was made without any embeds and without painting the final soap bars. It's pouring and soap shaping only. Since I love Paris and have been there several times this landscape was the first that came up on my mind when I read about the topic of the challenge.

I first painted the Eiffel Tower on a piece of paper and copied it on a place mat that I bought from IKEA for a few cents. It took me a few hours to get all my shapers done, but it was fun work. 

I uploaded a video where you can see how I made the soap, that's why I don't explain too much about it. It took me almost 1.5 hours to pour it. I used a slow moving recipe so I didn't mix lye and oils for each layer, I mixed it at once and it worked perfectly.

  1. This is truly breathtaking, Diane! I have no idea how you kept track of all the layers to sculpt! The end result is so well centered and balanced - you obviously did a great job!! I love the ombre of the sky and all the many details you were able to achieve just by sculpting!

    1. Thank you so much Amy! I‘m glad the ombré worked so well with the shaping, I was not sure initially. Thank you for your kind words, Diane

  2. Love this, crisp clean lines. The tower looks strong and beautiful.
