Don't be a soap licker

This is some naughty soap! Actually it was the fragrance oil that was naughty, it seized and I got some soap on a stick.



Very unhappy that the supplier didn't give a warning about it. And yes, I know all the tricks to using difficult fo's, but I would prefer a heads up so that I don't waste good base oils. I stuck it on the stove and cooked it until it had gelled down and melted back together from the dry chunkiness that it was.



I had planned to do a beautiful complicated swirl. Hahaha! Instead I had hideously textured soap. I decided to color it anyways. Rose clay for the base, and chromium green oxide and neon purple pigment for the "swirls"






No pic of the purple on its own, too busy trying to work with the stupid stuff I guess! I attempted to "swirl" in the mold. Hard to do when the stuff is thicker than oatmeal! This is when I picked the name out.



After I smushed it down



I went ahead and cut it into bars, this definitely might get rebatched though!

MareMare it looks awesome. I like how you named it muppet poop though...the colors remind me of muppets (even though it's very pretty!!). 

I don't know how all you people make soap. I'm sure I'd screw it up somehow. I can't do things that have to do with melting, boiling, baking, etc. I'm too impatient. I'd probably get goo or crumblies every time.

I love it!  The colors are perfect and the texture is kind of like homemade brownies, all crinkly on top and chewy and warm... mmmm.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.

i've tried to swirl soap myself with little to no success.  i guess the secret is to pour it into the mold in the first stage (before it starts to chunk up and it's still very runny).  i have a hard time justifying this.  I think that if you do a swirl you have to let your soap sit forever to cure.  I've tried to push the boundaries and left it a little bit longer but it didn't mix very well.  so i guess yes, it has to be in a liquid state when you pour it into mold.  let me know how that works out for you.  just rebatch this and try again, you'll have some wicked colours as your main base and try swirling in a black mica or something  Huh

 Shocked I would totally use that, its so cool! I gotta wonder if it would turn the bathwater pretty colors to, that'd be so much fun  Tongue

HAHAHA that looks incredible, don't rebatch it! I have a feeling that rebatching would just make it look muddy and gloppy. Blech.
I think it'd be a hit with the kids, especially if you name it muppet poop for real. Or at least, really awesome adults. Haha.

What fragrance was it, if you don't mind sharing?
