Can you describe how you got the shavings into the batter please?
For the yellow soaps, I mixed as much curls into the batter as I possibly could and then poured (or scooped and smushed rather) everything into the mold. Unfortunately the batter didn't get everywhere and there are some air pockets (I think I tried to jam too many curls into the batter)
The black soap with yellow curls were made by putting the curls upright into the mold and pouring very fluid batter around it.
The round black soaps were made with the leftover batter from the curly soap and I just added some uneven planing/bevelling bits (I learned from the first time that I shouldn't add too many) and poured into round molds.
I did plane all these soaps very heavily, because otherwise the confetti wouldn't be visible on the outside of the soap.

I don't make many confetti soaps, but here are a couple. The first is the first time I used confetti, the second is soap cut into little pieces from a chevron-attempt-gone-wrong, rather than using shreds.

Oh my goodness, that first one is so precious! Really creative to split it like that. :)

Anybody use a food processor with the grater and/or slicer blade to confettize their soaps? I’m not feeling like getting carpal tunnel syndrome. 😆
Two words: salad shooter. I wouldn't use for just a confetti soap, but for rebatching I would argue it's indispensable.

Yup-- Salad Shooter! I bought mine at a garage sale years ago and use it for grating rebatches (which I seldom do) and confetti. Works great. For super small gratings you can put it through twice. Once in awhile it gets used for vegetables......

You want to make confetti chunks or shreds either out of scraps from beveling or by grating/shredding bars of soap. It is a good way to use bars of soap that didn't turn out as planned. You can use a box grater/cheese grater or a food processor or salad shooter if you have one of those. Grating by hand doesn't take too long, so no worries if that's what you have available. Alternately, you can cut soap into little pieces and use it that way - i.e., chunks. You can chop your shredded soap into smaller bits as well if you like, or just leave it as is. Then just mix the confetti into a new batch of soap at medium trace so it will stay suspended, and pour into the mold. Bang the mold down well to release any air that might be trapped around the confetti. I learn best visually, so here are a couple of YouTube videos that might be helpful. There are many more, and you can find good advice by doing a search here on this forum as well.

I want to make a version of the AC soap above which is really beautiful.
