So i usually stick to making CP but i wanted to make a watermelon soap for my sister and read that the fragrance wouldn't stick in CP. So many new challenges with MP! First was getting used to the consistency - the black soap i tried to add for pips all sank to the bottom! Then when I unmoulded the layers came apart! I did spritz with alcohol but think maybe i let it set too much before pouring the next layer as i was fearing breakthrough. On the plus side it smells great :)

I like that the black settled; it looks like the seeds are hidden in the pulp of the watermelon. Very nice!

Those are cute! I love the translucency on the red.
Since fiddling with M&P I have gained a whole new respect for M&P artisans - it might be simple, but it aint easy!
