    I have been away from soaping for a while bud I always used to do a HP
    So where everyone started with CP ,I loved the fast method

    This is my first HP again and although I love it having fast result..I remember again that I didn't like the crumbled look...like its a home baked bread ... A bit raw and ugly
    Very different from those pretty swirls,piping,imbeds etc:rolleyes:

    Anyway,I wonder how it is like when I cut it
    In it is; beeswax,castor, coconut and sunflower oil and extra superfat added with olive and coconut oil
    Coloring with curry powder
    Sentenced with pachouli
    Decorating with fruit tea and shimmer

    Next week I will receive my cutter (a cheap one...I allow myself a big one once I am good enough ) :D
    So I might have to wait to cut it till then
    This is the loaf for now :)

    Here you see a light pink coming through,I hope it will be nice pinkish inside

    Welcome, Angelique. You are right, it does look a bit like a loaf of bread.

    Depending on the proportions of your recipe, you might have trouble cutting it if you wait a week. If it's really hard, and you wait to cut it, you many end up with crumbly soap. I'd probably try cutting a slice or two with a knife and see how the texture is before deciding to wait that long.

    Pretty soap. I know what you mean about the texture of HP. While it isn't as smooth as CP I think it's attractive in its own way. ;)

    Re: Sentenced with pachouli -- I think you meant: Scented with patchouli, yes?
    Please don't be offended. I hope that's helpful. I have a lot of respect for people like you who speak & write English as a second language. You should be proud of that. Sharing your soapy adventures here at SMF is a great way to practice English at the same time perfecting your soaping skills as well!

    Auto correct comes up with some strange results sometimes!

    Don't forget to share photos when you cut the soap, it will be interesting to see how it comes out.

    Yes, show the cut! I love the rugged profile of HP soap. I need to make it again some day.

    After unmolding I learned that I didn't make enough
    This because with HP you ofcourse have to this about water evaporating
    So the bars are a bit small and next time I will also make the dent smaller
    Bud I do love the rough look

    I cut off the top of my HP, but I love the marbled look of the inside of the log.
