    Love this one. It turned out exactly the way I wanted it too.
    I didn't cover it, but it still got a bit hot due to the mixed FO (Cinnamon Vanilla mixed with Amish Harvest) and the middle embeds started to melt just a bit. Not too bad, and once cut it won't be too noticeable, but we'll see.
    I'll post pics of the cut later this week.

    Heyyy, I just bought those very leaf molds. Amish Harvest is a favorite of mine. I cant see the melting so it must not be too bad. Looks Great!

    Can't wait to see it sliced. I don't see any melting on the embeds.

    thank you everyone.

    This pic was taken before the melting occurred. But it isn't too bad. I'll take another pic before I cut it tonight, and then the cut.

    HAHA Forgot to cut this again until I woke up in the dead of the night in a panic. LOL so I got up and 12:43 am this morning and cut it.
    It looks really good. Can't even tell a few of the leaves melted a bit. Of course I didn't take pics of the cut when I did cut them, but will when I get home today.
    I got tons of glycerine rivers, however no TD was used, and I always use a water discount. I don't mind them, but would have rather had a solid brown bar beneath the leaves. And it didn't get as dark as I wanted. And because I use VS in every soap it probably won't get much darker.

    I'll take a pic tonight when I get home (if I can remember) and you can see what I mean. :)
