I made a white gardenia flower scented soap for my cousin today and I must say I am quite proud of how it looks so far. I divided the batter in half and used TD for one and black oxide for the other. I poured the batter into a 2# loaf mold with a home made divider. Then I used my spatula to make some 180 degree counter clockwise swirls & clockwise swirls in the batter. (I should have just stuck with one direction.). Then I spooned the rest of the batter on top of that and played around with some swirls. I think it looks great. I covered it with plastic and stuck it in the oven. The oven was at about 192 when I put it in (and turned it off). I just checked it. The oven is 84 and the soap is 96. It's doing well, I think. The plastic is still clean, so there was no overheating that I can tell. I'm going to take a nap, then make another batch this evening. Hot process this time. BTW: the FO came from WSP (got it during their 25% sale) and it does accelerate a bit. However, I had no real problems because I only SBd to emulsion before I added my colors. So, if you are planning on using that FO, be aware of that.
