Sometimes it can be done, sometimes not. This batch certainly “looks” salvaged, but it smells a bit like hair permanent!
I took my ugly bars I ruined the other day doing my tutorial, cut them up into chunks and imbedded them in a new soap. The new soap, which I am calling “Shazaam!” was made with a base layer of 5x orange, with orange color added. It was a really bright orange when I poured the soap. I then added the black and tan chunks. For the top layer I mixed up dragons blood and pink sugar fragrance oils and then added a teal colorant, which seems to have, miraculously, stuck. Both dragons blood and pink sugar normally color a soap a very dark brown, and that was what I actually wanted for this soap, but wanted to experiment too. Anyway, this morning it’s still an olive green! I also added some soap shreds to the top for more of a confetti look. I’m very happy with the soap….now if it just looses that “hair perm” smell I’ll be really happy.
