Here is my super-fast trace soaps that I had to mush into the mold like play-doh. I'm glad I managed to work a bit of activated charcoal into it, I think they look kinda neat. These are the nicest looking ones.IMG_20180110_175424_mh1515624957583.jpg

If you like the look of nicely cooked meatloaf laced with ketchup sauce, this soap looks great.

I made these to give to my co-workers for Christmas. I wasn't wild about my mica drizzle on the bigger bars or the fact that my MP snowmen melted a bit. The scent was called Tis the season & it smelled like cinnamon & pine trees until the scent morphed! I didn't give them away because they now smell like a freshly opened canister of Play-Doh! I'd like to rebatch them but I don't know how to mask that scent!

Hmmm... play dough? Maybe the scent would cook off a bit, patchouli play dough?

Try again, toxikon. Those arenít ugly at all, unless the texture is bad and I canít see it in the photo.

You could try to confetti them. The scent doesnít seem to carry over for me.

I was pleasantly surprised when I chopped the bars up. I was convinced they'd be grey mush full of air-bubbles. I'll have to try harder next time.
