This soap of mine came out great, although I wasn't too happy with the colors. Although Ann-Marie Faiola said she thought the colors looked 'retro,' so that made me feel a lot better about it! I absolutely LOVE the scent combo.

I used Anne-Marie's 'Lots of Lather' recipe to make it, resized for my 4.5 lb mold. Here's the recipe:

28.15 oz (798 g) Palm Oil
28.15 oz (798 g) Olive Oil
3.50 oz (99 g) Castor Oil
7.95 oz (225 g) Sodium Hydroxide
19.15 oz (542 g) Water
1.75 oz (49 g) SweetCakes True Rose FO
2.0 oz (57 g) Wholesale Supplies Pluss Wild Honeysuckle FO
1 tsp Wholesale Supplies Pluss Yellow Oxide Pigment Powder
2 tsp Brambleberrys Electric Bubblegum Colorant

I'm getting a little bit better at the aesthetics of soap!

It looks to me like you did a great job!

Lovely!  Did you have any issues with the rose scent thickening/curdling the batch?  I love all rose scents, but I'm a little leery of what it can do to the batter..

This is great, I think the colors are beautiful Cheesy

It's interesting that you ask that, Mandyhello, because the first time I used the scent, it did rice on me (although fairly mildly, it wasn't evident in the finished soap). This time I had no problems with ricing, though, and I think the reason is because I soaped at a much lower temperature -- the first time I soaped at 110, and the second time (this time) I soaped at 90. I've found that I have much better results, overall, if I'm patient and wait 'til everything gets to about 90.

I've been teaching myself to be patient and let everything get to almost room temperature these days..  I try to mix the lye and water and just walk away for a while.  Same with the melted oils.  Ok, thanks, I'll give it a shot!  I love all those floral scents..

So pretty! It looks great with all the florals! I have a disastrous floral ricing pic around here somewhere!
