I had some fun last week making soap balls with left over soap bits, then incorporating them into a soap randomly. I really like the way this one turned out.
No matter what experimental batch I do, I always learn something... and this time my experiment reinforced what I believe about colour in goat milk soaps - heat affects colour. The liquid in this soap is 100% goat milk. I worked with it frozen and kept the temperatures low... except that I FORGOT about not incubating it. I remember for my "Love" soap with the heart inserts, I got such a nice white by not putting a blanket over it when I left it in the mould. This time, using the same recipe and soaping at about the same temperatures, the final product is much darker - more tan. It must be because I incubated it (wrapped the mould). Now I know!
Happy soaping everyone!!!
