    Thanks to help from DeeAnna and Earlene, I turned out a pretty nice-looking soap today. My previous attempts were very 'rustic' and not suitable for posting pics of.
    So here we have it - Cinnamon and Oatmeal Soap, made by ME!

    Here are my previous, more rustic, soaping attempts:

    They are all very nice, even the ones you are calling rustic. They don't look rustic to me

    I love all of them, even the "rustic" ones! What did you use for colors for both? Great job!

    The cinnamon and oatmeal soap is just coloured by the cinnamon itself ( about a tablespoon of regular cinnamon)
    The other one is split into two colours - one 'a la naturel' and the other was a liquid colourant (red, but I only used a little bit) I bought from a soap/candle supplier.

    Very nice. I’ll be interested to hear how you like cinnamon in your soap. My boys find it too scratchy - they have delicate skin! :rolleyes:

    They are beautiful :)
    You've done a wonderful job.
    I like the rustic ones as well.
