I use to have no problem with layers. I'd put down one layer say white and then color the rest of the soap and layer the top. In the last 4 batches the top later makes it way through the lower layer in one big blob. So what am I doing different? I just makde a rosemary mint with a pink at the bottom and green at top but it is mixed? Am I pouring the top layer too soon. My recipe is Olive, Castor, Coconut, Palm and Shea. I am about 50/50 between soft/hard oils. Should I lower the Olive? Been making soap for years but can't do all those beautiful swirls and layers. I wish I could take a class on that.:-?
