If you put too much pressure in it... it just might. Not Kidding. I just gave even pressure and increased as needed to break the seal. As soon as it slipped.. I backed off and pulled it out the top.

Once you break its hold... you might shoot it out of the pipe. Was not that hard to break the seal though.

 Cheesy I got a dreaded orange spot in my soap! My Latest batch. Did a M&P bar in a 1/2" PVC Pipe for the orange. Oxides were used in both the M&P and the HP. Scent is Ocean Breeze from Candle Science.

No Problem. The bottom materials I measured 16" x 9.5" square (square? I mean rectangle) cut to sew to hold an Angel Soft Supersized roll. The one in the photo is a little small and only holds a regular sized roll.

Very nice labeling. Do you print them yourself or have someplace print them? Just wondering of the paper used. Gives me an idea of some of the papers in the Scrap-booking section at Hobby Lobby as long as it's not a heavy weight paper for folding reasons.

Ok.. I guess it fits best in this section. TP is in the Bathroom.

Here is a little pocket to hold TP. One reason is our Daughter likes to unroll and make the nice paper go on the floor in a pile.. or run a stream through the house...lol. The other reason is just being lazy and replace an empty roll easier.  Grin

Man, I started cutting into it tonight... and it looks like crap to me. No swirling... just globs of white. Now the red oxide did its job very well so I am happy with that.. but no swirling at all. I dont feel like wasting the material anymore so I will stick with HPCP. I guess if I want swirled CP, I can always order a log from Brambleberry...lol.

FO was added before any coloring... so to the whole batch. Thats why I was wondering if the separated part needed to stay warm too.

Edit: That gives me the idea to color at a extremely light trace, separate the two parts, color each then add the scent right when I am ready to pour.

I just did my cold process attempt with the oxides and Dragons Blood. I took it to a lot lighter trace than I do for HP. Took out part into a Anchor Glass Measuring cup because I did not want it colored. Did the red oxide in the crock pot part, mixed and poured. Reached for the Measuring cup and went to pour...glop glop glop. The stuff went into a pudding stage.

Do I need to keep this part heated somehow too or do I need to do a really really light trace?

I went with it and may have fiddled to much with swirling. It's in the oven now so we will see tomorrow how it comes out.

I want to try a funnel pour with two colors so I need to keep things liquidy. Cant do that with HP.. grrrr...lol.

Maybe I should do a HP tutorial since I see these cp ones...lol.
