Clicked on here with a totally different expectation of 'grass'
I have never seen this technique and love it! Do you pour at thick trace? Do you pour one layer and then use a fork? Or part of the next layer and use a fork into the lower layer? So curious.
Yours is beautiful and I love the colors.
It looks like you used a fork, since you said forked layers. Did you pour at thick trace or did you let each layer set up a bit & then use a hair lifter or an actual fork (plastic, I hope) then pour and wait for the next to set up and so on? There are no bubbles that I can see, so I'm thinking each subsequent layer had to be fluid enough when poured to prevent bubbles in the little valleys, but firm enough when forked, that the fingers were able to hold position.
I divided my batch of oils and lye in 4 parts. Mix up each part one by one, pour at thin trace (my first later is a medium to heavy trace and has many bubbles), let it sit for about 3-5 min, then scrap out the texture using a plastic fork (don't have metal ones that are big enough lol).I've seen similar results where a fluid batter was separated out into colors.
Just before pouring color #1, stir in an accelerating FO. Let it set up, then make the design with scraper tool of choice. Repeat this process with remaining layers.
Having said all that, this particular soap is REALLY cool - excellent work!
