    Tried a couple new techniques, neither turned out quite like I planned.

    This is the HP salt bars I made this morning. HP is just a pain to get in cavity mold, its worse when its stiffened from salt. Scented with Lime EO and a touch of lemongrass EO.

    Tried the hidden feather swirl, my dividers kept moving around and the swirl is too big. Turned out ok I guess. Over swirled the top so I coated it in mica. Scented with white tea & ginger.

    I think they are both neat. The salt soap looks like tumbled turquoise, and that feather is so pretty!

    I like them both too Obsidian! The rustic salt bars look like they're ready to do some serious cleaning. Like A big, tough guy would grab one and happily stomp off to the shower, lol. Your feather swirl may not have come out like you envisioned but I love it. Your colors are great and compliment the name of the FO. Excellent job! :thumbup:

    Still you were a brave soul to HP a salt bar. :)

    I like the colors on both, and to be honest, the salt bar rustic look has it's appeal. Nice job .

    I love the salt bars colors, but your feather swirl is even more love-able. :)
