Batch #24 Orange-Opium

First let me say something about the sent..WOW! from saveonscents

Soap is basic: Coconut 5 oz. olive 6 oz. cotten seed 5oz. Palm (orange) 4 oz. and castor 3 oz. The Natural palm has a wonderful orange color . I mixed a little to much Titanium Dioxide and made it a creamy yellow.

Neil, I love that marble effect you are able to achieve. Whatever you're doing, keep it up.

Nice shot of the squirrel. They are such characters.
