My most recent soap batch! I made a mix of 5 milk powders (regular skim, buttermilk, yogurt, goat milk, coconut milk) that I added to the oils. I scented with WSP Lemon Drop Cookie in the main part of the batter, and I left two small portions unscented to color the top. White and yellow, of course!

Thanks for clarifying. I was wondering what the heck a "quint" was! Nut? Fruit? Veggie? (Beautiful soaps, by the way.)

Those are cool looking, Dancer. I wonder how the synergy b/w the milks will turn out ...

They look like edible lemon-cheesecake squares, nom nom! Please report back on how the quint-milks perform . . . I love milk soaps but have never combined that many in one batch.

This swirl would also be great as wood grain in a woodsy soap!

Thanks everyone! I'm rather pleased with how they came out! Even if the swirls didn't go as planned... lol I meant to do two passes in each direction across, then to do maybe a looping swirl or something in the other direction, but by the time I was done going with the straight lines, everything was so wispy that I didn't want to risk doing anything else! lol
