I made soap

My bars of soap cut up! I know they are not perfect, I spread it too thin. I used a glass pyrex dish as my mold. Frank made some very nice soap molds, but they are large. They are for full batch soaps. This is a tiny batch, I wanted to try my hand at this. It was spread too thin though because I should have used a smaller glass dish.

This was my first batch, it is having trouble setting up. I didnt blend it long enough, this was my favorite smell that no one else likes. It smells as licorice and has oatmeal in it!

This is my 2nd soap, it is anise sage soap. I used blue food coloring to make my kids smile, and what actually happened is it turned purple. Now I should have used wax paper in here. I thought that it would come out fine with just oil but it broke up, the first bar broke but after that worked well.

Pretty pretty.... My kids are in love! I am in love with my lovely cutco knives which I used for this.
I can share my recipe if anyone is interested!!!

This may or may not work, but if you cannot get it out, try sticking it in the freezer for a while.

Well, it certainly looks nice! Very pretty indeed, with all the swirls!
