Hot Process Cracked it

Ok so it's been a little while since I last Blogged but I have been busy in the kitchen trying to crack the Hot Process method and by jove I think I've got it.

I started off with small 500g batches and was so proud of my first successful batch which was fragranced with Bay Rum...plain and simple but heavenly.

Then I tried to be a bit too cocky and went for a 3 coloured layered one, fragranced in Aphrodite which is like a spicy cola. The colours were a nitemare and I ended up with white blobs of soap flecked throughout.

And today's creation is Red Grapefruit & Candy cane..I absolutely love the fragrance and the colours were much easier this time to blend in.

So all in all I am slowly getting there, but will ever aspire to create some of my own versions inspired by the wonderful soaps that are out there.

Edith ~ Hp is becoming a nitemare for me unless I keep it really simple like the Seville orange & Calendula...I'm just a tad impatient lol :0)

Ich liebe die Farben und den Duft jetzt ist göttlich. Haben Sie auch tun, HP / CP / OHCP? sorry bin mit Google Translator es so kommen kann, ein wenig schief.

The second photo reminds me of the painting "Stary Night". Sometimes mistakes turn out to be beautiful.
