OMG!!! I just put my first CP under blankets!


Everything went sooooooooooo smoothly. Well, until I got to the point where I needed to add grape seed extract. It was pretty stiff, so I put it in the nuker. Sheeeeeeeez!!!! I opened the door & it was smokin'!!!! I measured out the rest of what I had which was short a few oz, so I subbed Palm Oil - hope that works.

I recognized trace, added my own EO/FO blend & when it reached full trace, poured it into the mold. I had about a minute to play with the surface - made some peaks, & it was beginning to set.

It's a buttery yellow. Wonder what it will finally look like... I think I made SOAP!!! :shock:
