Hey everyone! I am totally new to soapmaking - I got my first order from BB a few days ago and attempted to follow Anne-Marie's tutorial for the Bee and Honeycomb Soap ()

I made my first batch last night (well, technically my second batch, as the first one turned a weird yellow-green color from me mixing in the raspberry leaves while the soap was too hot, I think). I let the soap harden on the kitchen counter for ~4-5 hours. I live in San Diego, so I don't think the humidity is very high, and my house temp is ~74 F. I unmolded it, and it was very firm and looked great this time! I brushed on some heavy gold mica, then wrapped them in saran wrap right away. This morning, I looked at the soaps, and this weird sweating is appearing in between the spaces of the bee. I used honey MP base for JUST the bee's.

What went wrong? Is it the honey MP? Did I wrap it too soon? And how do I fix it - should I unwrap them and let them air dry for a bit..?

Here's the pics:

And the raspberry leaf is bleeding a little.. any tips? Can I hide the bleeding if I use a different color?

Thanks in advance :)

The honey in the base is a humectant, even in places where it's dry. I live in the desert and had the same problem. I no longer use this base. I would leave the soap out or spritz it with alcohol and dry it off. As far as the leaves, yes, they can bleed. I don't know if any way to prevent this.

Thanks, soapbuddy! It's a relief to know that it's not something I did to make it do that. I was feeling quite disheartened from my soapmaking experience. I think I'll try to make that Honey Ale soap next to use the rest of the honey MP. Do you think I should leave the soap out (unwrapped) for a few hours to try to counteract the sweating?

I've just started making M&P and I made a layered neopolitan soap. I did the same thing, I wrapped it up and a few days later it was sweating. I used BB goats milk soap base. I read in another blog, to leave it out to dry a bit. I've kept mine unwrapped for a week and it is much better, the bar even hardened a bit. It's been really humid in Cleveland this summer, so I'm guessing I won't have to leave it out to dry that long in the winter.

Happy Soaping,

Ali
