follow up on colors

Blue Sugar type before

Blue Sugar type after

Coconut after(use to be solid white with glitter)

So not all soaps that start pretty stay pretty. Blue Sugar type is a tough scent to soap color wise. It is a darker oil and has vanilla in it so it will shift. I used vanilla stabilizer to try and keep the shift from being too bad. But over time this bar got a mind of it's own and has totally changed.

Same goes for the coconut bar which I have discontinued. Started out a pretty white but is now an odd combo of white and strange brownish see picture.

I figure even with the Blue Sugar shift it is ok cause it is a guys soap and it still looks male friendly. Yes I would have liked it to stay the nice pretty blue/white/black but I can live with it.

Can't win them all I guess?!??!

I like the added brown in the Blue Sugar:)

It would be nice if the colors would just STAY PUT, wouldn't it?? I have a coconut that isn't discoloring, but a lot of the fragrance disappeared in the soap. Hoping it will magically come back as it cures!

I still love them Misty!!! Your wonderful with your items, I can't wait until hubby gets out of school to start back!! I guess the best part is that the smell still rocks even thought the color might not be what you wanted :)

well the coconut is on the light side and now not that great looking which is why I have decided to discontinue it. Looking like the last 6 of those bars are going on the clearance area at the craft shows.

Bummer about the colors not sticking or turning. All your soaps smell wonderful though....I can't wait to use the ones that just arrived! :)
