First Chopstick Swirl Cold Process Soap - Sliced

First Cold Process Soap Cut
  I am pretty proud with these soaps.  My first ever cold process and they turned out.  I  cut them today after about 48 hours of being insulated.  The shape held firm with every slice.  It was dry and soft enough for cutting.
 The blue/red mica I added just settled only on one side of the soap.  But the blue color swirls gave that  handmade look that I always admired from other online soap makers.  I also have to learn how to cover the mold yet still keep the sides smooth for a more straight/smooth sides. 
Now the waiting to see if the soap will perform as they should. Hopefully they will give lush, luxurious bubbles that easily gets wash off and leaves the skin feeling soft and moisturized.  Have to wait 3 to 4 weeks according to the instructions.  Temptations abound.  Can't wait to use them.


  1. Congratulations on your first soap, this turned out so pretty, I love those swirls! I agree, it is so hard to wait to unmold it and then have to wait to use it, but it's worth it the wait! :)

  2. Thank you Cee, I came across your blog and is enjoying every posts. You are one of my inspirations and I learned a lot from your blog. I can't wait to make more soaps. I just have to give these ones away before my house will get filled up with soaps.

  3. Thanks so much for your kind comments...looking forward to seeing more soaps from you! =)

  4. You are very welcome Cee, same here looking forward to learning more from you. I have another batch ready for cutting tomorrow. It's starting to become an obsession. The techniques in designing these soaps is infinite, I can't wait to make more to get my hands on every one of them.
