Here's my latest batch, scented with Blueberry Thyme from BB. It's based off this soap by Love Your Suds, so I can't claim the credit for dreaming up the design
I typically overheat, so I was extremely excited to get a nice even gel without glycerin rivers! I wrapped the mold in towels, put it in a shoebox, and laid the heating pad on top of the towels. This seemed to get a more even gel than when I set the mold on the heating pad.
This was my first time using an embed made in a column embed mold. The scariest moment was placing the embed on the freshly poured bottom layer (which I had put in the freezer for just a little in an attempt to harden it). Thankfully my sun didn't sink much, although it was rather stressful.
If anyone has tips for lowering an embed into the mold and placing it precisely, I'd love to hear them!
