I made 5 pieces for each side of the mold then used clear packing tape to connect the bottom sides to side pieces. (so the vertical sides flap...

    How much Titanium Dioxide to get soap white?

    Can you help me name this?

    Hi, I'm drawing a blank on what to name my soap. It is a blend of Bergamot & Mandarin and Green Tea. It will be natural color with green tea leaves in the soap. It's definitely "spa" like with notes of citrus and astringent. I wouldn't say it's relaxing. More like invigorating. Any...
