When I first started soaping, I only used the melt and pour method. Being green, I began with the soap base, fragrance and colors available at my local craft store. I was hooked. My creations were beautiful and it kept me busy throughout the winter months.
I am waiting for material orders from Soapies and Bramble Berry, so instead of making soap today I decided to clean and organize my cabinet of inventory.
I just threw away 20 lbs. of my melt & pour creations...yes, 20 lbs!!! All of the colors bled together. My layers were not crisp lines. Colors blurred and turned to a brownish-yellow where they met. I am so disappointed. All that hard work down the drain. It filled 1/2 a trash bag!
So the lesson for today is be sure to use NON-BLEEDING colorants!
