    Congrats to you all! There were a lot of beautiful soaps entered. And honestly, everyone who entered should be congratulated! It was a very tough challenge and the fact that so many not only tried it, but succeeded in it is awesome!
    LP, thank you for creating this for us. I had so much fun and really learned a lot about how to actually use trace and not just achieve it.

    Such beautiful soaps, all of them, but I can certainly see why the top 3 were chosen. Absolutely gorgeous! Someday if I buy some vibrant colorants I will try this technique. It looks like a hard one to master.

    Congratulations! Beautiful soaps all of them. I thought it was difficult and you all did so well with it. I'm so glad I tried, learned a lot and it was fun. I've done 2 or 3 hanger swirls since.

    OMG! I'm in shock. I expected another name in that spot because so many people did such beautiful work. Congrats to Rowan & Sonya for some amazing soap. Huge congrats to everyone who participated!

    Thanks so much LP for putting this challenge together. I don't know that I ever would have watched Petra's videos and caught the little details that make it so unique. I had a great time with this swirl and will definitely be using it more!

    Oh wow!! Thanks everyone!! Well done to Rowan and KristaY - both awesome soaps!

    This was not an easy challenge at all so I applaud everyone that entered.

    Thanks to LP for a brilliant tutorial video and excellent instructions

    Bring on the next challenge

    Congratulations to the winners - especially doubting Thomas Rowan! - and all the entrants. It was a really tough challenge that you guys and lion princess made look simple!

    Congratulations to all our winners. Soaps were amazing. Wish I could have particlpated in this challenge. It definitely looked challenging with lots of learning opportunities with it. When my leg is healed, and I'm back home mid summer, I am definitely going to try it. Meantime I get to see great examples of all of your wonderful creations!
