    When to compete?

    Nothing "fugly" about your soap. To tell you the truth it is a very ambitious design. You captured your main inspiration perfectly, from the colors to the sense of depth and flow of the design. You even added/eliminated a few elements that are not in the original inspiration picture making it...

    When to compete?

    Anytime you feel ready is a good time. When I first found the forum, I kept struggling to get the 50 posts since I mostly read. I still made the challenge soaps but did not enter or showed them around. They were hideous, and I cringe looking back. It was a new medium for me, so it took a...

    March 2020 Challenge: inlaid soap design

    My soap is carved. I have a somewhat ok soap but, as per my usual crazy tendencies, I have decided that I want something on the back too. Each design different, because I need more complications when it calls for something simple. Waiting on the soap to set a bit to keep working on it. I...
