The madder colorant May have faded somewhat in my salt bars. The indigo looks has gotten darker. I will post pics tonight.I used an annatto infusion with salt..soleseife....went white pretty fast!
We don't do 'holiday' like y'all do over there. It's still called Christmas here, and it's very low-key. Sure, families get together for a big mid-day lunch, but bearing in mind that it's summer time here, it's usually a big outdoor barbecue (or 'cook-out' I think you call it). I'm not sure people would go crazy over Christmassy type scents - but it could be worth trying a few to give as gifts this year I suppose.That looks like a pretty color! Holiday soap?

Is the Pope a Catholic???????????/You WILL post inside pics right???
This made me smile.I made a annatto infused soap with an in the pot swirl of yellow oxide....my fake ghost swirl...
Yes it is bio glitter. And it does seem to have dulled somewhat since going through gel. But since the name of the soap is sugar plum it still suits - because it looks like granulated sugar.Is this a bio glitter by any chance? Glitter will soon be banned in the UK as it is in the family of micro beads but I was wondering if bio glitter would just dissolve on top of soap batter?

Your higher superfat soap will be loved by all this winter when everyone gets dry skin....so you are ahead of the game!Wow.. I posted on here like 4-5 years ago and this thing is still going after being gone several years. Very cool.
Today I unmolded a 20 layer fall soap only to realize I had 10% SF somehow which I can't say I've ever used. I blame my baby smacking the keyboard or no sleep lately as I have no clue how this happened and its so soft! This one always takes all day to do.
Our Christmas isn't summertime but being where I am my color, scent and tastes associations are somewhat different too. We do celebrate our Christmas with a bang though... I'm sure this will be a long thread once it's created **hint lol**I'm curious to know how a summertime Christmas affects your associations. For example, what are the tastes and smells of Christmas for you?
It's been three weeks, feels like longer! I keep seeing all the wonderful soaps people are posting here and it makes me want to experiment further -- my soaps have been pretty basic so far, you can see what I've done so far here, and here is my latest:How long has it been since your last soap?
Oh - I thought you'd been salty girl from way back?I made, what hopefully turns out to be, my first salt bars.... We shall see soon.
Do it heheheOh - I thought you'd been salty girl from way back?
I'm having thoughts of making a 'triple coconut' bar using coconut milk, finely desiccated coconut, and 3 x FOs - Creamy coconut, toasted coconut and island coconut.
