I couldn't sleep the other night because I had a soap design idea in my head. I wanted to do a milk soap, that looked like a London Fog tea drink.

The base is colored ever so slightly with red vibrance mica from NS. The top is supposed to look like frothed milk on top of the tea. It is colored with TD. And I tried to give it a little character by putting a cinnamon colored swirl down the center. It would have looked better without it. 😁

The whole thing is scented with "Afternoon Tea" FO from NS. It smells very tea like, a little like Earl grey tea.

A London Fog (at least in the US) is made with Earl grey tea, vanilla flavoring, milk, and milk foam on top. And sweetened as well.

With that in mind, I used milk as about 70% of the liquid, the rest was cold brewed Vanilla Comoro tea.

I'm not sure what's going on with the top though, maybe glycerin rivers? Never had them before so I'm not sure. I'm not comfortable zap testing it yet because it's not yet 24 hours old.

Such pretty soap! Those could be glycerin rivers, but I'm leaning towards something that wasn't completely mixed.
As I poured it, I was thinking it looked like I didn't get my TD mixed as well as I should have. Of it doesn't zap, it's still safe to use, correct?
