    Spots and dots Soap

    Annnd another soap :p That's the crumbly one! I left it in the refrigerator for two days and it was quite crumbly. I used one piece of soap as a modeling paste and smooth the crackes out. It looks fine now and I hope it won't be crumbly when it will be fully cured :sad:
