Having done it, the biggest trick was having a totally level and flat mold on a completely flat surface.
:thumbup: Good advice. Also, take time with the prep. I set out 6 small bowls. Warmed the oils and put a little oil (1-2 Tbls?) in each of the bowls. Added a teaspoon of mica to each and stirred well. Then added the lye to the rest of the oils and brought to emulsion stage. I mixed one layer at a time, to allow it to set a bit before adding the next color. I spritzed lightly with alcohol between layers. HAVE FUN!
I hope you post pics when you finish!
Ditto that! Here's a link to the PHOTO GALLERY.

Welcome Susie! LOL Yes, I do know what you mean! I do mostly liquid soap and CP hard bars but here's a tip I learned early on to give HP a smoother finish. Add an oz of sunflower oil after the cook; stir for one full minute to fully incorporate, then pour. :thumbup:
Thank you I'll have to try it. I have used yogurt and it does ok .
