Normally when I make melt and pour soaps, I usually use the clear glycerin soap and use the opaque white soap for the embedded shapes I place in the bar of soap.
Here is a project for Chunky Bar Soaps from SoapPlace.com that does the opposite. Why not try this project and try something new for your melt and pour soapmaking projects. I do not know why but these soaps remind me of those Brach nougat candies that you would buy in bulk at Safeway. So I would say that this soap project brings back a happy memory of my childhood. May I should try and make these soaps soon.
