Default Rainbow Pencil Lines

Here's my most recent try at interesting soaps for a friend who can't use scents. Rainbow pencil lines with mica. No indigo, but I probably couldn't have done 8 white pours anyway because they would have been too small. I'm pretty pleased with it for a first try, though if I tried it again I would make the white in two passes. All that layering took about a half hour and by the end it was too thick to pour, resulting in the especially bumpy last couple lines.

Those look great! Your scent sensitive friend will be very pleased to have something other than the usual, boring, white, scent free soap

They turned out wonderfully. Your friend is lucky to have lovely soaps to use, handmade by someone who cares about them.
deciding everything is falling into place perfectly as long as you donít get too picky about what you mean by place. Or perfectly....

That's an intriguing use of pencil lines, BG. The rainbow colors are really attractive, especially against the beautifully white base soap. Well done!

That trick with using bottles or piping bags or ziplocs for the scale design also works pretty well for making nice, thin even layers. Just start with your batter thin enough so the soap can just dribble out of your container without any pressure, and get right down by the surface of the soap with the tip. If you use a bag, cut your hole as small as you can and still have soap drip out without you squeezing. Pipe in a layer, tap the mold to smooth.

That is gorgeous soap.
