lisafrantz Posted August 5, 2014 Share Posted August 5, 2014 I've been making soap for about a year and have decided it's time to venture out and experiment with colors and swirls I am having a heck of a time getting the trace just right to swirl the soap. My first few batches ended up too thick so I just ended up with basically a layered pattern. Now tonight, I decided to cut way back on using the stick blender and only used it to mix the lye and oils, then hand mixed the scent and the color in part of the batch. I was afraid of the soap seizing up like it normally does so I barely had trace when I poured the soap and added the color. I think it was probably too thin. I'm sure it could be the FO making things more difficulty but if you have any tips to share I'd love to hear them! They make it look so easy on the videos Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
