Kaleidoscope Soap - In the Mold

I am so, so, SO excited about this batch of soap! I'm sure you all know by now that I love color. My most favorite soaps to make are 6 color/rainbow soaps. I've done several variations but I don't think I've ever made a simple rainbow swirl soap. Well, not simple, but you know... not layered. :-D The design is pretty much the same as I've been doing recently, which is an in-the-mold swirl.

I drizzled the top with the various colors.

I mixed my own scent for this one and it's beautiful. I am not great at describing scents all fancy-like. I just know it smells good. I mixed coconut, pear, raspberries, blackberries, cantaloupe, plum, lilac, lily, citrus, apricot nectar, amber, and vanilla. It is definitely complex.

I had a bit of batter leftover so made some small hearts. Some are solid colored and some are a splatter mix of colors. It worked out perfectly as I need to remake the Crushed soap. Now I have the hearts and they are mighty colorful! The scent will compliment the Crushed scent.

Thank you all for your orders. I have sold out of four kinds of soap already! I am happy to make more!

Thank you! I get the majority of my colorants from The Conservatorie now. I am not that impressed with the company side of things but their micas are very good. At this point, I know which colors are stronger and weaker in my soap batter so I can adjust it as needed.
