Shades of Green- Part Deux

Faux Funnel Swirl-Spearmint 3 shades of green + white

Well, here are the results of my first Faux Funnel swirl-my gradients aren't as pronounced as I had hoped,but still I think that for my first try I'm pretty happy with how things came out. I see some clumps of td that I need to work on-I ran it through a strainer + used the stick blender in my td  mixture before separating it out into the green and still  there are a few clumps. What do you find is the best way to eliminate td clumps?

Sister, that is one FINE lookin' soap, and a really nice photo! I have never used TD, so I can't help on that, but I'm sure glad you shared the beauty. :) ~Beckster

Michele this soap looks amazing! I really like it. When using TD, I mix it with a little water first and let it sit for 10 minutes. And when it goes into the soap, I give a couple of blasts with the stick blender.

This soap turned out so pretty!!! I agree with Erin, the longer you let the TD soak in water if it's water soluble, or oil if it's oil soluble, the less likely you'll have the clumps.

@ Erin and Amy-Thanks guys for the tips on the td-I always seem to have a few clumps get by me.I will definitely try letting it sit in the water a bit for working with it.I hope this will be helpful information for others as well. Thanks for chiming in guys.;-))
