Goat Milk Soap With Color

On this windy and slightly balmy day in Ohio, I decided to work with pigments.

The first soap is scented with a blend that includes sandalwood. I love the mysterious, swirled look to the soap. Right now, though, with a sense of humor, it could pass for ketchup and mustard. Umm...pass the hot dogs, please?

No, it is not plum pudding, but it sure could be a good replica! You might be surprised at cutting tomorrow. It is not what it looks like at the moment. :)

I really did not need to take a pic of this one. It is two toned soap, no swirls. Should be a fun violet and white bar, a spring flowery type of soap.

Join me tomorrow at cutting? The camera will be in tow!

Mary, because of your awesomeness, I am becoming a vicarious soap maker. I LOVE your posts and play-by-plays of the soap making process. Someday, after you decide I'm your best friend, I want to visit Annie's Goat Hill and help you make soap! Seriously.

PS: Lwt me know when the lilac soap has finished curing. I want every bar.

I too am becoming a vicarious soap maker! I have a question or two...are there special pigments that color the soap but do not color your skin as the soap is made ( I know the answer must be yes, but what kind? ) And how long is the average curing time for your soap?

Looking forward to the soapy surprise you will show tomorrow!

Kathy, the pigments that I have used do temporarily stain the hands. They generally wash out very quickly. I normally cure for a minimum of 4 weeks, 6 weeks depending upon the soap recipe.

LOL, Alix, I will stop by your blog. Thank you!
