Today I soaped Asian Plum from Lillian. I knew that it would be tricky to cold process (I already had one disasterous attempt) but I thought I was ready for it this time. Got it all put together, almost an immediate thick trace but I got it poured. It was at a thick pudding stage when I got it in the mold and setting up fast. A few minutes later it looked great--very hard. I thought I was in the clear. :whew A few minutes after that it had separated (I guess???). There was a thick layer of oil on top w/ mushy solids underneath. I dumped it all back in my stainless steel bowl and used the sb on it to recombine it, then glopped it in the mold again. It was UGLY so I grabbed a purple bar and grated some purple shreds on top. It looked okay at that point so I stuck it in the freezer (not sure why I put it in the freezer--just seemed like the thing to do at the time :lol ). Now, a few hours later it is unmolded and seems to be good. Still pretty ugly though. :lol What caused it to separate? Has anyone done Asian Plum CP successfully?
