More "Green" Soap

For so long I've had it ingrained in my mind that if you want to make cold processed soap, then you've gotta use a wooden mold. BA-LO-NEY!!!! I've hid these plastic grid molds forever and thought they would not be able to withstand the rigors of lye and heat, but man was I wrong! Not only did they easily slide out, but they are also pre-scored, so all I have to do is cut and trim.

Here are a few pics of soap I made over the weekend. The pink one is Blackberry Apple and the greenish-looking one is Italian Granita Ice. I love the ashy look of this one for some reason. My tastes are becoming more and more rustic. I'm so over with trying to achieve the "perfect-looking" soap. These bars make so much lather, that I was in complete awe! Now I'm off to make some soap balls with my scraps. Talk to ya later!
