My second batch from this weekend, 5th batch overall. I definitely added too much yellow for the stripe, but it's not as bad as when I first poured. And look at that...layers! Yea!

I like the appearance! It's not too much color unless your bubbles are colored. :)

I like the white too. What oils/fats did you use to get such a nice white?

Thanks!! :D

This recipe is similar to my second batch using palm kernel and apricot kernel. So far, my favorite recipe.

No other fats/oils? Hmmm... I'll have to run that through SoapCalc. From your pictures it's a very nice, pure white. Very nice for coloring too, no color from the oils to fight your added color.

Thank you all! I love them.

I do have some castor and walnut oil in very small amounts. It's mostly the other two oils. I believe it came up a 151 INS.

I think they're all clear or almost clear oils then, very nice white!!! I'm formulating today trying to accomplish a similar white to provide a good contrast for a lime green swirl.

I really like your yellow too. The contrast is very nice, and the color very pure. As long as it doesn't produce yellow bubbles I really like the degree of yellow that you achieved. What type of colorant was it?

Oh, and I wonder what kind of swirl that would have made! :) :) :)
