Color Palette Soap Challenge 2013 - Color Crawl

I am reinstituting the Color Palette Soap Challenge - CPSC I did last year. I am going to run the challenges every third week, giving you 2 weeks to complete a challenge, and a week to link it up.  This is a challenge for any skill level, any soap - CP, HP, MP.

I will post a color palette, you create any soap you'd like using at least 3 colors (you can add nuetrals, see the rules below). You can join in any time.  At the end of the 2 weeks, you'll have 1 week to cut, photograph and promote your soap on your blog, business Facebook, YouTube, or Pinterest board and link it up. When you are promoting your soap, provide a link back to this page of the challenge. Full rules are below. Instructions for linking up will appear on Saturday. Have fun!

Choose at least 3 colors.  Remember that neutrals are allowed in any challenge.  Try to push yourself to do something different than you typically do and use as many colors as you can from the palette.

Rules for CPSC:
  1. Sunday the color palette is posted.
  2. You have 2 weeks to create a soap using at least 3 colors in the palette, as close as you are able to get the color. It's soap, I understand there are some limitations.
  3. Use any recipe, any coloring ingredient, in any soap medium - cold process, hot process, melt and pour
  4. Additional colors are not allowed except for neutrals - black, white, grey, tan, ivory, shimmery gold, shimmery silver (you can post them, but I will only feature soaps following the palette)
  5. Photograph your cut soap and promote it on your blog, business Facebook,YouTube or Pinterest boards with a link back to the current color palette (this page), so others can find us and join in, too.
  6. Saturday, 2 weeks after the challenge is posted, the InLinkz goes live for 1 week.
  7. You have 1 week to post your photo on this blog linking to your blog, Facebook,YouTube or Pinterest pin (that way everyone can find you on the net)
  8. When the challenge ends, I'll pick 3-5 creative soaps from the InLinkz for the week and post them to this blog as featured artisans.
  9. I'll add featured artisans and others that catch my eye to my Pinterest board so others can see what you have made using the color palette.
  10. Have some soapy fun!
