Yesterday I unmolded and sliced the mystery batch of soap. Since I tried too many new techniques at once and the whole process was more than experimental; I really had to idea what to expect. The results are pretty great. Not only the does soap smell delicious, warming, and amazing, it cut beautifully! My goal was to make a harder bar of soap and this one was perfect only a day after soaping. Now I just have to let it cure so I can test the lather.
Additionally, it did end up having a bit of a multi-colored look to it! The annatto stripes are light but they’re noticeable. The soap reminds me a bit of a tiger. I’m having trouble with coming up with a fun name for it (orange-cinnamon is just too plain for such a funky bar). Send your suggestions to me!
