    Indigo pink! Who knew!

    So I'm not going crazy! I made these indigo ombré soaps a while ago, and I'm currently using one at my kitchen sink. The other day, I thought I could see a pink band going across the middle of it. That must have been from when I was using the infusion very weak and hadn't stirred it yet as I was progressing through to the darker layers. Very interesting!

    The fresh, recently cured soap photo is there for comparison. I used 70% EVOO which was greener at first, but then lightened to a more whitish colour. IMG_2985_shibori.jpg

    Sorry for the poor photo quality... night time lighting is not the best. It kind of shows the pinkish layer across the middle.

    Nice pink band! How old are the soaps in the second photo? The green EVOO is pretty, too.

    Thanks! The soap in the second photo is about 8 months old.
