I really wanted to do a soap that was primarily lard after hearing so many people rave about it. This 7th soap was created with 70% lard, 20% coconut oil, and 10% castor oil. Scented with lime and sage, and colored with brazilian clay. I really like the scent the lime gives it and I am pretty proud of the swirl that came out. I didn’t follow any formal technique, just did whatever. I’m not sure I like the texture yet, but that may be more to do with the clay than anything else.
Here’s the soap in the mold. Oh, before I forget, here’s a tip. This is helpful: that soap looks unique – could you post another angle so I can get a better idea of what I’m looking at? Not Helpful: I thought I was looking at a squid.
