    Drizzling Honey MP over fresh CP Soap

    I made a fresh batch of CP Oatmeal Honey Soap and want to drizzle some Honey MP Soap over the top of the honeycomb like tops. Do I wait until my soap is cured 6-8 weeks or can I do it now. Wondering if it would effect the curing if done now while the soap is fresh. Never used MP before.
