This was 2nd attempt at CP and I have to say that I think it turned out pretty okay! It's not perfect. It didn't go perfectly well, but all in all, I'm rather pleased... My color wasn't what I expected (tomato powder) once I added it, so then I scrambled around looking for red soap coloring and adding and stirring and...and... By the time I actually poured it into the mold things were quite stiff! LOL Still liquid enough that I could do my layers which I was trying for the first time - so between learning how to color CP and doing layers it may have been too optimistic for just my second time. I promoted gel phase with a 'heat in the microwave' shoulder thingy and I think everything looks okay at this point! The only question I have is: if you look closely at the top there is one spot that is shiny. What's up with that? lol Thanks for looking!
