Half the soap was colored with the Titanium Dioxide mixture I keep on hand, while the other half was colored with 1/2 tsp of Black Oxide mixed into 1oz of Olive Oil. I had originally planned on doing a simple spoon plop layer, but the batter was very slow to trace and wouldn't thicken up enough. I ended up just using a simple layer on layer of the colors and then using a spoon to mxi them together, a very simple Celine Swirl if you will, that didn't really swirl. It gelled in the mold, and although I wish it hadn't I am still quite pleased with the look of it. The scent retained quite nicely, and still is strong after almost 8 weeks. I will definitely be ordering more of this one!

I made some new soap today, a facial bar. I have to wear a lot of makeup for my job. Not scary heavy, it looks great if I do say so myself, but I really have to go all out with foundation, bronzer, highlighter, blush, primers, eye shadows, and usually my cat eye liner with a colored liner over the top of that (again, it looks FAB!). I have been noticing that my fancy schmancy face cleansers do not take the stuff off my face like my handmade soap does, so I wanted to make something that would not only be beneficial to my skin, but also melt my war paint off my face without have to scrub. I just made it day, so it will be a few weeks before I share how it works, but I know I am not thrilled with the color. I used some Purple Brazilian Clay as a colorant and it just came out muddy. Not a big deal since I made it for me only, but still kind of sad it is not pretty. Oh well, soap and learn right?
