    What soapy thing have you done today?

    I made my first soap in about a year! Recently retired and moved to a farm in Kentucky. I'll unmold it tomorrow or Monday and see how I did.

    SMF January 2017 Challenge Entry Thread- Gradient Layer

    Here's my second try. I haven't done layers in awhile. Definitely out of practice. This is a primarily lard soap scented with Love Spell ( I forget where it came From.). I colored with Nurture's Really Red.

    SMF October 2016 Challenge Entry Thread

    I thought I'd have more tries, but with a hurricane and evacuating, this is it! I did a pour with dividers, then removed and swirled. What I thought was interesting was how different the two sides of the same bars were. My entry choice kind of looks like a parrot's eye and maybe beak??

    Soap size

    I like the 1.25" thickness as well and I make several different size bars. My personal favorite are tall & skinny molds. These are usually 2-2.5" wide and 3" tall. The mold I use most often is the 2X3" mold. I just like the feel of that size bar in my hand.

    Three tries and I think this is it. Not very many feathers but I love how the design & colors came out.

    Question about challenges

    I think a challenge is meant to spread your wings. How would we ever learn if we don't try? Sometimes we may not want to post our results, but we still learn the basics of a technique. Keep pushing us!!

    I've been using one for a couple of years. My company participates in a program that pays us to reach certain levels. It helps keep me at it!

    Why does 80 lard, 20 coconut soap feel so good on my skin?

    We eat a plant based diet. Not strict vegetarian, just mostly plants...EXCEPT for bacon every Sunday morning! I love my lard soaps. Once you try FAT, you know where it's AT!
