A Pretty Soap With No Future

This is one of my favorite soaps I've made so far, but the titanium dioxide didn't fully mix for my lighter topping, so I got white powdery dots that smeared when I cut the soaps. Every bar looks speckled and smeary (you can see the smear better if you click on it and blow it up to a bigger size).

The scent is a warm and lovely Graham Cracker Carrot Cake - OMG, yummmmm!


I'll have to try again, because this is too good not to share :)

This *may* help. I've started mixing those pesky clumping powders in a small glass dish with my fo's before adding to my soap. So far, so good it seems to work at dissolving the clumpage.

(if one of those poor delicious little bars needs a home, you have my addy ;)

The specks add to the look! But if you don't like it, I"ll be happy to take it.;)

I use my speckly soaps with no problems, it's still soap. Bet they smell awesome!

It looks great to me. No speckles would stop me from using your products!
