So I can't sleep EVER and I decided I had a bunch of crap to make soap so I gave it a whirl. My boyfriend insisted he wanted bugs so the blue is lavender and the red is apple. Boring, but cute. The two on top smell amazing and I worked really hard to get it right. It is eucalyptus mint with fresh eucalyptus. I made about 8 bars of that, but the 2 in the photos were the only ones that looked normal. Haha. Hope you like!

Yes, I went to the store and hunted down some molds. They didn't seem to have a big selection though so I will have to look elsewhere or stick to just making bars.  Smiley

I see. hmmm... I wonder if they might have more molds online to buy. I think there are kits where you can make your own molds too.

The bug ones are so cute! They remind me of those Creepie-Crawlies that everyone always made when they were little Smiley

Haha. My brother always used to cry until I made them with him! And then he'd eat all the Easy Bake Oven mix.

I made some swirly blue and purple vanilla soap last night. It seems a little slimey to me. Any suggestions to remove the "film"?

To get rid of the "sweat", you can put some alchohol or witch hazel into a spray bottle and just spray it on the soap. It helps a lot, but you know, soap is still sticky  Wink.

How did you swirl it? Did you just melt 2 soaps at the same time?

I actually melted soap in 2 different measuring cups and poured half of the blue in. Then I let it sit for about 5 minutes and I poured the purple in. Then I just grabbed a chopstick and swirled it all around. It came out ok. I have to give it another whirl this weekend. Yay!
