I also made 2 attempts for this challenge. Since I like several pours using a slab mold, I have since ordered an actual one. This was done in a silicone cake pan, so no nice edges and I can't cut a straight line to save my life. 😆 I poured over 4 old spice bottles. Scented with BRV and colored with MM Pitch Black, NS BlackBerry and MM Plum Purple micas. I used my new beveler for the first time, but probably would have better results on straight lines!

Well I’m late but here’s my attempt! This was so fun and my first time doing a column pour. Will definitely be trying this again!

Edited to add: I chose a recipe high in lard and tallow to keep it fluid longer. I did add goat and coconut milk as I do with all my soaps. It was funny that the soap I poured started to thicken before the soap still in my pouring containers which made for a weird texture on the outside edges. I got a little soda ash going on in that area as well. Fragrance was natures garden black raspberry vanilla as it has a reputation for slowing down trace. I’m also adding more pictures of the process 😊
