    Take note on how much colorant I used and back WAY off lol The bleeding is worse now than what I posted before. It's a good thing it looks & smells amazing, otherwise it would be shredded up and turned into confetti :D

    Hope you don't mind me asking, but how are the stars achieved - is it TD?

    Don't mind at all @Primrose :) Yes, its TD (the kind you mix with water) mixed with a little rubbing alcohol. I dipped a toothbrush in the mixture and ran my finger over the bristles.

    There's a part 3 to the video I linked in the first post. For some reason it doesn't show up on the side when watching part 2, you have to go to the video list. She used mica. I have no idea why I chose TD, I guess I forgot I had white mica :D

    These are gorgeous, and thank you very much for the video link! I think using soap dough instead of soap scraps is a really brilliant move

    Thanks heaps! I was thinking it was TD mixed into the batter but this makes more sense. Shame it would rinse off in the first use, but I don't know that there'd be any other way to do it, would there? To have it go all the way through the bar

    The only thing I can think is to shred/chop white soap and use it as a confetti in the black, but I don't think it would give the same look at all. The design still looks great even after the stars wash away :)

    Mostly just making the soap dough ahead of time. I found it was much easier to work with after at least a month. I'm getting started on my next batch :D

    @midnightsoaper

    I am curious about that mesh for hand washing? Looks really effective? WHere did you find it?

    @Clarice I bought them on Amazon. I like that they give almost instant lather (in my hard water). I toss all the teeny slivers in one. The only thing I don't like is when I wash my hands a billion times a day, it stays a little too wet sometimes. The one I keep hanging in the shower with a shaving puck dries out nicely (I've found these are best for getting a good lather with Windsongs shave soap in the shower, a shave brush works up a better lather, but the mesh is much easier).

    It's a squox! :D My daughter's nickname is Squirrel and my sons is Fox. After I saw that pic, I had to use it somewhere I'd see it over and over again, it's so cute!

    I don't usually chime in with congratulations because there are a lot of truly incredible soaps posted on this board. But this, @midnightsoaper, this defies words! I can't even!!
