Really? :o A lb of clear melt and pour and I only got 2 of 4.5 oz rectangle bars + a half a one. Does it reduce from the heat or something?

Also the backs look wrinkled kind of. I poured smoothly and then sprayed the bubbles with alcohol. Looked great but then I slid the mold over the counter to be out of the way of kitchen activity. And I checked back and the bars' backs looked "wrinkled." Not bad, though. But I absolutely won't move or jar the mold in the future til soap is hard. A couple of hours, I guess.

I ordered 2 lbs of my embeds for cold process soap and you won't believe how much this melt and pour shrinks after heating. I only got embeds for 4 soaps and they were small embeds too. I decided not to make melt and pour soap. Will do cold process embeds. They are much better.

Oh, good, it's not something I did. However, bars are so oily to the touch wtih 1/2 oz of scent that I'm going to have to buy another brick and remelt the old soap with it. To cut that oiliness. Totally confused about how much FO now. :( :?

Melt and Pour soap base still contain some water. When you heat it some of that water gets lost and evaporates.
