    These are the first two dancing funnel attempts for the August challenge. The first one I tried to imitate a polymer clay technique using M&P. It didn't work out too well, I just couldn't maintain the temp/ consistency of the M&P. (it was worth a shot)
    The soap:

    The clay technique (not mine): riverrock.jpg ..yea, not so much :(
    This is one I tried some gold mica in oil in the design, it didn't go as expected but it's shiny.

    This was really great fun, ahh the possibilities. :rolleyes:

    Not quite what I was going for but lots of fun. The purple one is scented with Nurture's Peace and Love (Olive Branch dupe) and it smells amazing. I think I'll put it on a rope and just wear it all day! Thank you!

    I was soaping today and thought of this thread. Wondered if I could do it with just pour containers.
    Unfortunately it doesn't work when the batter starts to thicken too quick thatnks to my over mixing and a (unknown to me) faster moving FO then I was prepared for. Shows that the recipe can sometimes control acceleration .
    But it was fun trying .

    Ohhh put it in your car or closet ! makes for a good air freshener ;) But honestly it is Really really good !!!

    I love the mica added to the funnel. Lovely effect, even if it wasn’t what you were going for.
