Kristin, they look fantastic! Did you use your new TOG mold?
Thanks Paul!

I did not use the TOG mold for this one. I used another previously purchased log mold. I DID use my awesome 8-wire cutter, however, and also the TOG planer! I love them all!

I used my TOG slab mold this weekend as well, for a first attempt at re-batch. Not so sure if I like the re-batched look...maybe I did it wrong, but it just looks like poopie. I did the crock-pot method. Next time I will try boil-in-a-bag. It was only my second time using my TOG slab mold and those babies just popped right out so easily! Can't wait to try a good swirl in the slab mold, hopefully this coming weekend!

wow I love that soap! did you scent each layer different or did you scent the whole batch and just pull out the different amounts to color? Did you allow it to gel? If yes what type of color did you use to hold such a great color?

wow sorry for all the questions? I just haven't had much luck with colors. Not giving up though!

The whole thing is scented with watermelon.

Yes

For the pink, I used ultramarine pink with a pinch of red iron oxide. I added titanium oxide to make the white part more white, and I used green chromium oxide for the green... :)

Soap is yet to be tested, so I don't know yet if it lathers white...!

hey thanks for the info--- this may be a dumb question but are are those a powder type of color? Do you add them as powders or do you mix with oo or another type of oil then mix into soap?

Fantastic !

What is gelling soap?
Gel is allowing the soap to heat up by keeping it insulated to go through a gel phase before unmolding.

Some soapers choose to not let it go through the gel phase by quickly cooling the soap while in the mold.

Yes, these are powders that I purchased from WSP. I purchased the oil-soluble version, so I mix the powder with a little bit of my oils from the pot and then I add this back to the batter after mixing the lye/water into the soap.

Hope this helps!
