Made my first gradient soap and it didnít come out the way I wanted it to. I even had enough for another layer left over so put that in another mold. The batter was so thick that it was hard to get the layers even when I would bang it on the floor after each layer. And didnít save enough for the top. Oh well live and learn......will definitely try again

Today I cut the soap I made Sunday. It didn't turn out like I had envisioned. The translucent part is supposed to be crystal clear MP with a sparkling mica in it. My swirls (plain soap batter, white, light blue & medium blue) are almost undetectable and the Heather fragrance I used started smelling like fresh cut roses as soon as I mixed it into the soap. It didn't smell like that oob. I like my top. Not bad for my first try with a fondant mat.Name:  IMG_20170924_210049.jpg

Thank you! I think they'll be toppers for brine bars.
