My soaping day started out with a win. Sister had asked that I make some unscented goat's milk soap for a friend and everything worked like it should.
In no time at all I had a lovely little loaf.
The next morning it was ready to cut. No drama here.
Then I went to clean up and wrap the last of the giveaway soap. This is what they all look like. I used a gradient colored batter separated by a thin pencil line of sifted mica. Nice and simple-I thought. Mica is what gives all the soap its colors but here you use it in its powdered form instead of mixing it with oil.
Well......if you sift on a touch too much the layers will separate and-they did. Argh.......I lost one whole loaf of my favorite new pine scent. I was not happy.
Yep. Too much mica. Now I have lots of little pine scented hand soaps. I am sad to say I am down six bars for the giveaway but I promise if I do run out you will go to the head of the line for spring. I've got some very interesting new fragrances already on the way-plus some unscented goat's milk soap curing.
Is anyone else interested in unscented goat's milk soap? I've got a big container of powdered goat's milk that has to be used up and I can make more and have it ready in six weeks.... as soon as I clear out the soap room from the floor mess.
