Black Raspberry Vanilla Cold Process Soap

I've been trying to get away from having too many dupes in my shop and becoming more creative with original blends.  Black Raspberry Vanilla, however, is one that I don't think I'll ever stop making.  It's not a best seller or anything, but I just love the scent. 

Not too sweet with just the perfect amount of tartness.   Love it.

So, I mentioned in my last post that I'd found away to anchor my neon pigments better in my soap.  For this batch, I started with my neon purple, then added Ultramarine Violet and a bit of activated charcoal.   Instead of a super bright neon purple this gave me a beautiful, solid purple.  That's all I ever wanted, lol.  A solid purple in CP soap.  Now, if only I could get a red...
Normally, I really plan out the look of a soap right down to the swirls.  All I cared about this time was the color.  I just poured the colors in at random  and pulled a wire hanger through in no particular pattern.  Believe me when I tell you, that's a BIG deal for me!  I like plan and control the outcome of my swirls.  It was a little (just a little) nice to just let go a bit this time.
