    Dang! Of all of the things that might have happened, the small loaves I made for carving went through partial gel. I’m trying to fix a couple of bars in the oven now. In the interim, I have a couple of ungelled bars of leftover soap and I’m carving one of them now. Is there a “petite” carved soap category? :p

    Here’s the first bar of soap I carved for practice. It’s just 2x2, but was more challenging to carve than my entry soap due to the nature of the pattern. I could have left more soap on top to plane off. It’s way more uneven than I remember from last night. I like it though and would consider making bigger bars this way for special gifts.

    20200325_201428.jpg So, this was the design I was going to work with but due to lack of resources, I can't quite finish it.

    I'll be working on this right till the deadline .. . Just poured my base soap tonight. My recipe hardens pretty quickly so fingers crossed I can carve tomorrow or Saturday and just sneak in!

    That's too bad! It would've been a lovely entry and I'd be very curious to see it once you decide to finish it!

    I am so sorry, szaza, I had every intention of entering but didn’t get around to it. I just don’t know where the month has gone!

    No worries @penelopejane that's life unfortunately. It's been a weird and crazy month for everyone I guess..

    Just a reminder that the entry thread will close soon. Officially in three hours, but I'll go to sleep before that and close it in the morning so there will be a few (+-6) extra hours if someone is still trying to upload their entry ;)

    I jinxed myself when I said my soap usually hardens quickly. My soap was definitely too soft to carve but I managed to do one bar of each design and will do the others later.

    Here is my non entry
