Since I had good results the last time around I decided to try it again. This time I used my strawberry silicone mold. I was envisioning all these strawberries and berries on the top. Just thinking of how cute they would turn out. I decided not to use Melt and Pour and make my strawberries out of Cold Press Soap....I was doing so good. Mix lye with the oils. Added the fragrance and then the mica. Pour it in the mold, and tapped the mold GENTLY to settle any bubbles...and then it hit me!
IT REALLY HIT ME!!!
The mixture shot up at me and went straight for my face!
I always read about some soapers that have accidents with raw soap, and you take that lesson and you try to be extra careful. Did I get lucky! A reminder to all...wear goggles - ALWAYS!!! an apron, long sleeves and gloves too. Because you just never know :(
In the mean time once I felt that I had washed off all the raw soap I finished pouring the soap in the mold, cleaned up my area. I ended up dumping tons of Vaseline on lip. My hubby looked at me and asked me what happened. After I was done explaining he grins and says to me ..."now you have pouty lips!"...yes, I think I was sporting Angelina Jolie's famous pout :)
But you are probably wondering how this soap turned out...here are the pics
I should confess that in the end I ended up using Melt and Pour soap after all. I was not happy with how the Cold Press Soap Berries turned out. With the Melt and Pour the Mica colors are more intense and I love the final result.
