I'm a little frustrated at this point!! I soaped my first sucessful swirl yesterday morning. At least, I thought I did. It was a simple OO,CO,lard recipe that I have made 2 dozen times at least. The lard was from a new bucket but it smelled nice and fresh and was a good white color. I used a blue green oxide for the swirled bit of soap, And, I used a WSP FO called Aqua Spa that is no longer on their site. I had used this scent once before in M&P with a blue swirl and it has lasted 10 months...really holds up well. I used about 1.5 ounces of FO in a 2lb batch. I put the soap in my kelsie slab and made the swirl. The soap was a little thick but it seemed to work. I checked under the cover before going to bed last night and the soap looked great...creamy white with a nice green swirl. I covered it back up (why or why did I do that??) and left it until this morning. I uncovered and was horrified!! My soap was pink! the green swirls on top still look exactly the same. I unmolded (or to be more accurate, got my DH to pull the dividers out. I do not have the strength and it is difficult!!). Much to my surprise, the soap is still creamy white except for the tops which are pink to a depth of about 1/8-1/4 inch. I WILL post pics over in the Photo Gallery as soon as I have them. DH takes the photos for me and he is off for the day now. The soap is on the cure rack. I am waiting to see what else happens to it! I guess this was the FO but why did it look Creamy last night and now pink? And why did only the tops and a bit of the sides near the dividers turn color? Do you think this is unsafe soap as well as being ugly??? I so wanted to have a nice swirl under my belt and then this happened? Maybe a good cry would help!
