Dewberry Goat Milk & Glycerin/Goat Milk Melt & Pour

I made this soap the same day and basically the same way as the soap posted below, except that I used a  different mold and fragrance and the coloured portion is all one colour- but I'm sure you noticed that already:) OK, so here's what's different. I used my usual amounts of soap posted in the instructions here but I wanted the  glycerin portion to be more opaque, more the way coloured goat milk soap would look. So when I was melting the coloured glycerin soap, I added a few squares of goat milk soap to melt with it. Then I had to add a little bit of purple colour because the white goat milk soap had diluted the colour. Then I had to wonder if the glycerin  soap with a little bit of goat milk soap melted with it would have enough weight to sink through the goat milk soap with no glycerin added to it and it did! So the coloured portion of the soap is semi opaque and not as vibrant in colour. The Dewberry fragrance was added to the goat milk without glycerin. Thanks for looking!

Orange & Pink Satsuma Melt & Pour

 I am tired of the drabness of winter and ready for some vibrant colours. I've used two colours of glycerin Melt & Pour soap with white goat milk soap, done my usual way shown here. I poured the orange soap at one end of the mold and the pink at the other, both at the same time. I fragranced the goat milk portion of the soap with Satsuma fragrance.
I ended up with a few solid  coloured bars and a few bars with both colours. After I made the soap I remembered a card I made last week, these would totally go together, especially if I wrap the soap with green and black ribbon. Thanks for looking!

Blackberry & Shea

Here's a repeat of the soap I made in my last post, just scroll down for the recipe.
This time I used Blackberry Sage Tea fragrance and Purple Ultramarine colourant. There's a little non coloured soap in a thin layer on the top that I kinda swirled with stick. Thanks for looking!
