I tried a few new things with this recipe: I masterbatched the lye (well, just enough for this one recipe) and when I needed to add more liquid, I added boiling water to some titanium dioxide to see if it helped get rid of any clumps. I'm pretty new to TD, but it worked pretty good. Also I used mainly soy oil which i don't think I've used much before (it's labeled as "Vegetable Oil"). We'll see how scratchy those apricot seeds are.

Nice white and no sign of any rivers. Looks like you mastered your TD. Nice job!
Thank you! Honestly, I don't think I've ever gotten glycerin rivers, or rivers of any kind, but that's only luck! I'll have to do a little more research to try and understand them. I was pretty pleased with the white of the bars, because I used EVOO and that can always subdue colors a lot or leave bars kinda yellow/greenish. I'm trying to get my colors down before I move onto scent.
