beautiful, love your choice of colors!!
Thank you, Marilyn!
Oooh I'm so glad you mentioned that. It really is my hardest bar and lasts forever in the shower. Also, with the problems I've been having with sweating, it's the one that does not. I was thinking I'll start using it in everything lol
Maybe the others who have tried it don't like that it lasts too long haha... lessens the chance of getting more soap from you
Oh, when I made the 8 batches in only a few hours is because I got all my oils weighted up , sorted and lye water done the night before.
I don't masterbatch lye or oils due to my tight space.
I LOVE rice soap! Yours sounds luscious
Wowza ... looks amazing!
Today I attempted another drop swirl. I foolishly used an accelerating FO. It caused the batter in the five pitchers of various colors I was using to thicken halfway through. I hope I got away with it. The last little bit was starting to rice and I SB’d most of it out. Keeping my fingers crossed!
Wow the top looks beautiful. I also tried to do a drop swirl today ( I tried it once before and it went ok...not great, but ok) because you inspired me. Well my batter accelerated (of course) and so my drop swirl turned into the plop in the mold. I still went ahead and muddled through and resisted the urge to use my hanger tool or any other swirling thing. The top looked divine...but we will see in 2 days what it looks like.
I am anxious to see what yours looks like.
I’m anxious (worried) too.
@Kari Howie you won't know till you cut Sometimes they come out better !
NO cutting for me tonight, not there yet and 3 are still in molds.
I came home form work to take out of molds so I could cut after work but I don't want to chance it.
Early rise tomorrow
Very pretty. I love the colors!
Thank you so much, Mobjack!
WOW the top is gorgeous
Thank you, Marilyn! I just hope the inside looks as good.
be sure to show us the cut!!
I’m scared! But OK.
First time making soap in a long time... I unmolded 3 loaves of Calendula Castile today. I had some calendula infused in sunflower oil that needed to be used up and found myself with a window of opportunity to just do it. So I did!
Is there a way for me to retain (if not all some) color of the dragon fruit? Is there a technique to do so TIA @Dawni
@Kae no you can't keep that color.
I won't be able to cut till tonight, still a bit soft and I don't want to get too bad drag lines
I did order Shea butter today since my regular place will be out till mid/late Fall
You all are So Impressive!!
