I know you weren’t overly impressed with my purple soap yesterday. The color I left you with in the mold wasn’t exactly pretty. However, you know if you are a soapmaker that there is a little bit of magic that takes place during saponification:
I had several people on my Facebook fan page, as well as one of my blog readers, suggest that I should try some grape pop mica. So I ordered it before I cut the soap. Even though I think this looks pretty good (the darker soaps are the ones that gelled and look the best), I will be anxious to try the mica as well. I’ll put in a good word for TKB Trading while I’m talking about their mica. Although they have a $19.50 minimum order amount, they also offer first class mail for orders under 13 ounces which made my shipping cost just $3.00!! It makes me happy to know that I’m not the only one offering great deals on shipping. (Great Cakes Soapworks offers first class shipping as well.)
