I am loving the entries so far.

Dahila, your colors are so crisp and well defined.

Soapapprentice, I love how the swirls go through the depth of your bars in your 3rd photo. That's just how I wanted mine to come out. Your reds and white look fabulous.

Artemis, your pastel peacock swirls are quite attractive and again, the swirls thoughout the depth of the soap is my goal as well.

BattleGnome, I really like how the discoloring FO turned your base to a darker color. The brown really seems to complement the purple and pink better than the original light base color did.

Omneya, your soap, even though you say it isn't so orange, looks great in the orange-y earth tones. Reminds me of the 70's. I do see in one or two of your other pictures less orange, so I suppose that's more the true colors. I love the gold shimmeriness as the soap started to cure. I kept forgetting to add the gold mica oil to my soap. It happened twice! Oh, and I almost forgot to mention.. I like the shape of your soap. Somehow that larger block shape of soap really appeals to me. My husband also told me recently that he likes the thicker block type shape better than the thinner rectangular shape more common here in the U.S.

HowieRoll, your greens and yellows are such a nice combination and I'm lovin' the side view of the bottom layer of your soap as well. That spin swirl really works well in your finished soap.

Dibbles, you are so good at judging the right amount of black in your design. I am so impressed and really want to learn how to properly use the right amount of black so it doesn't over power. Your colors really complement so well and your finished soap is gorgeous.

CaraBou
, beautiful swirls and I am bevel envious.

Anshika154, what fabulous colors you got with your alkanet root and annato seed powder!

Jewels621, I love the cool tones of your finished bars.

Great job everyone!

I hope I get mine ready to enter before midnight tomorrow. If not, I'll post it later. I think it's better than the 3 rejects I already posted.
