Thanks kc, I really enjoyed this challenge and it was a really different new technique to try with so much potential. When I have more time I am definitely going to revisit this! I hope you will host some more challenges with us

Congratulations to all the winners, you all did a fantastic job!

Thanks, guys! That was fun. This sort of technique makes you have to think of soap as an artistic medium. Which is a little weird if you think about it too long. I do think I will give the swirling part a try again. In fact, my soaping friend back home wants this to be our project when I visit this summer.

Are you guys serious? I think you voted cool astronaut Chris Hadfield, David Bowie, & R.E.M.!!! I think everyone's skill set shines through soap canvas, and is better skill level than me, be it envisions,pouring technique, color scheme, design elements, and makes a really thin fluid acrylic cell pour. I'm mesmerized by the talented people here. You all are my Sensei ( Japanese: teacher ) and I look forward to learning from you.

Congrats winners and each and every challenger! We tackle down another new technique TOGETHER!!!
There's a William Faulkner quote goes like this: " Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Do not bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself." And I think this is what SMF challenge stands for. ( though we still have voted our favorite three.)

And now what's next challenge?
