Looks nice. I have to figure the dual lye thing out. I tried it once. Did a 95:5 and it just came out too soft. I plan to try again with my steric heavy bacuri butter bars since they come out natural super hard.
Your soaps look lovely.

You might also try 1-2% KOH, rather than 5%. That seems to be a sweet spot for my typical recipe.
