New for the curing rack


Recommended Posts

Ok, this first one is Coconut Lime, first time CPing it, it did want to rice a little but I beat into submission, it also accelerated super fast and began turning to soap in the pot and I had not added my reverse swirl yet...so I dumped it in mold and then attempted to swirl in the mold, here is what I got, not much white at all, but that is ok. The one thing that did worry me is that my lye water looked different than normal, it was thicker. I am going to be watching this batch very closely and testing the heck out of it. I did not get many air bubbles with the thick blob as I thought I would. This is my basic recipe with raw silk added. Colored with aqua mica from MMS. I also used a huge water discount and may have contributed to the faster accelerate

This is the soap cut, you can see a air pocket in the front bar on the right, this pic is more representative of what the color is

very cool lookin soaps!

What kind of mold is that??

You don't even want to know LOL Let's just say it is the of the homemade brand. The mold I was using had a boo boo so I had to use a box, but it is almost the same size as the mold and worked perfectly, thank god I have about 10 of the same box until I get hubby to make me some
