Pics in order of batch number

Batch 1 was nothing special recipe wise, colored with Chrome Green Oxide and scented with Herbal Essence by BB.

Batch 2 was my first attempt at a coconut milk and lard based recipe, colored with Chrome Green Oxide and scented with Heavenly Honeysuckle and Herbal Essence from BB

Batch 3 is my second attempt at a different lard recipe - scented with patchouli and rose...batch almost seized up...my first "ugly bar"

Batch 4 I made tonight is Coconut Milk and Coffee with oatmeal also added, 2nd attempt at batch 3 recipe using changes I learned from the first attempt

If I had more molds I would be twice that...I have definitely caught the soap bug!

If those are your first four and I can't wait for the second four. And I wonder how long it will take to get a true Ugly!

A very impressive first try...well done. I didn't even come close to that on my first try...or my second...or my third...

Yes Susie that is a stainless steel (non-aluminum 8 slot loaf pan)

I have been having a HUGELY fun time learning this soaping thing! I had someone offer me 70 dollars for whole loaf of coffee soap last night and as much as that would rock I told them not yet!

I appreciate all the warm welcomes (this should say compliments)! Back to reading posts so I can learn more!

Right here, silly!
You're off to a great start! Much better than my own, I daresay. lol

I especially love the look of top soap. From where I'm sitting the white part looks translucent, which gives the swirl somewhat of a 3-D effect. I can usually get that kind of an effect in my 100% coconut oil soaps when I refrain from using TD. I just think it looks so cool.
