the washer~woman

so i've made two batches of soaps so far and they are in the setting process!  of course neither one has turned out quite how i envisioned them to be! 

i have much to learn. like how do you get the creamy white coloring that i so desire?  and then, how do you get the fluffy swirly tops? 

one of my future plans is to give workshops on how to do all of these wonderful things...the dilema is i just need to get them figured out for myself first!

tomorrow i can check the first batch and then i need to determine how long to wait until i hand mill it and add in some special ingrediants.  once this batch has been milled it will need to cure for at least 4 weeks! 

photos to come!
