There is a little teeny feather here and there, but they are hard to spot, especially since the lighting in the "laboratory" is not great. I used what I had: brick red oxide, purple Brazilian clay. Scented with the last drops I had of Moonlight Pom, Peach, and Lavender Cedar. I call it, Spiced Pomegranate and will probably put it away for Christmas teacher gifts. Oh! OO, Lard, CO, coconut water.
Until and if I get another one done, I will submit this on made on July 3rd. It is an egg yolk soap with a bit of buttermilk. I am on my tablet so don't have access to all the pic ATM, but I think this one showed the best feathering. Granted, not a lot.
Here is my entry for this challenge. I was so happy to have had some amount of feathering on every bar from this batch, but I think these show the technique the best. The fragrance is BRV from Nurture.
I made 5 attempts and this is my favorite out of them even though it actually had the least feathering of the three that I had some success with.
It is a blend of Eucalyptus and Tea Tree eo, colors are uncolored, winter white, spring green, and green vibrance blended with some sparkle mica (all colors from nurture except the black sparkle is from WSP).
I'm sorry for the poor pictures, we were leaving for our road trip (I am in Oregon on the road as we speak) and had to rush to take pictures to post.
Not bad considering how thick the batter was. I am happy with it! Micas from Nurture, scent was an Apple freebie tester, also from Nurture. Smells like apples!
Also, this was poured in a one-pound loaf mold, so for whoever was asking if that would work, it can!
Edited to change entry photo after reheating soap to force full gel. The orange is so much easier to differentiate from the red now, and I am even more happy with it!
I used Vinegar for slightly half of the water (166 g) so it would harden faster. The loaf came out of the mold cleanly without damaging any of the corners. Scented with Soapalooza's Vanilla Orchid Blossom and colored with Nurture Soap's Hollywood Pink and Turquoise micas and some TD because the FO discolors to tan. Lard/Olive/Coconut/Rice Bran/Castor (45/30/10/10/5).
