    Well it was expected at some point. I had decided to do the polka dot thing in a loaf pan using squeeze bottles. Well we have our first pencil line soap instead. I used rose essential oil and BAM! Instant acceleration with a hint of rice! :(
    So we did a 3 layer with 2 pencil lines of activated charcoal. And first layer I had an oops POOF of charcoal! :oops:
    Desire to go buy a new loaf mold is real. Just so I can try again! Chalk this up to learning!

    Oh yah! I think I have 10 CP batches done! Took a HP class which got me going! So loving everything about this! I have a planer coming soon! Been ordered! And I plan on beveling edges too. Haven't started that yet. However it really does make the soap look so smart and professional!

    Love the looks of these! Isn't it wonderful when you still get something great, even when it wasn't what you were aiming for. I have that happen a lot right now.

    I love glycerin rivers. In some of my soaps, I get them on purpose. Very nice!

    I agree with Misschief, the glycerin rivers look great. That's a nice looking soap - great improvisation!

    I like it. It looks very geological. Like stratification in a hill.
