Dreamsicle? Hmmm, maybe not...
This soap brings to mind the old expression "Ugly as homemade soap" Gasp! Did I say that out loud??
Suffice it to say that it didn't quite turn out the way I had envisioned it!
You can barely see the two colors...there's a bit of lighter-hued "sweet orange" soap, colored with yellow dock, that I drizzled in. It's toward the bottom of these bars.
I'm hoping there's a chance it will show up more as the vanilla (dark) soap cures and gets even darker.
I was, and still am, hoping for a scent like those old ice cream/popsicle bars that were orange on the outside and vanilla ice cream on the inside. It sure doesn't look like one, though, does it? : )
Too tired after cleaning the garage and making a double batch of lye to play with my Alkanet...but "Tomorrow is another day!" to quote Scarlett O'Hara.
Happy Skin, everyone!
