I saw a soap online that I just HAD to duplicate. Kim Taggard at Boulder city soap and candle company created it. It is called Americana. Go look it up! Her process is amazing
I am sure this was a cold process, while mine is a hot process, so I knew there would be a few issues. But I wanted to try anyway.
First, I bought the star mold. Then used a honey glycerin melt and pour. It came out perfect!!
I was out of goatmilk powder, so I ended up with lye water that was too hot. Soap Volcano!!!
But it was ok. I colored it, scented it, and went to work.
I was really happy, even with the uneven stripes and too-low blue section. Practice makes perfect!
The cut made me smile! And then….the color started changing. FacePalm. I forgot the vanilla stabilizer. Crap.
Not sure what color this will turn into in the end. I guess it is now called Ragged Old Flag. Lol. It smells amazing though! Like Smores!!
