My first batch also include lots of pink clay which combined with the fragrance oil traced FAST FAST FAST! (I'll post pics of that, along with my attempt at The Soap Queen's "Cherry Blossom" soap technique -I'll give you a hint on how that turned out by saying unfortunately "Anne-Marie I ain't" :(
I will try that again, though, using EOs just because those "blossoms" are so CUTE!
I did another batch of Goats Milk using a different fragrance oil (white soap) lemongrass EO (yellow soap) and lime EO & pink clay (pink soap). While this bad boy accellerated too (while I was messing around with the Cherry Blossom thing again) but I banged it into the mold hard (enough to jar my teeth) and it looks o.k. I think.
So here it is -all I could think of when I saw the cut bars was the old Eagles song "Tequila Sunrise":

Considering the whole acceleration thing, I'm happy that it turned out at all! :)
Stay tuned for the Week 3 Challenge: Piping Soap
There are sure to be some blow-your-hair-back results from the participants!
Happy Soaping, everyone! ~Becky
