I call this my "secret squirrel" soap because it felt like a clandestine operation I'm fairly new to soap making. This will be year two I've been making and using and sharing with family my creations. I stick to one basic recipe that I absolutely love, and have decided 2019 will be the year of the colorants for me. I was inspired by so many of your lovely soaps on this forum that I decided to try to create one of my own. I knew that my Cinnamon Sugar fo from Brambleberry discolored my soap to a tan/brown, so I separated my batch 1/3 without fo and 2/3 with. I then poured layers and did a swirly type motion at the top. Bear in mind my soap looked all the same at this point. It was like writing with invisible ink, and then hoping it would become visible later on. I took photos of the top 48 hrs after and the inside 72 hours after pouring and 24 hours after cutting. It worked and I am elated. I'm also asking Santa for micas for Christmas so I can do this the proper way.
