And two others. I would have liked the colors on the slab swirl to penetrate deeper, guess I need to hold up the cups higher.

I tried to do a semi layer with the sage green - wasn't thick enough to sit on top, but I like the green.

And finally another tri color - again I wish the purple would have gone deeper.

My tops did not stand up to the saran wrap and cover that I put on it. How do you get gel and still use saran wrap and cover? Or do you do something else?

I think they look great!

As far as keeping your textured tops and gel goes, you could cpop the soap or what I have been doing lately is putting a larger container over the mold so that I don't mess anything up with saran wrap an then laying a few towels over that.

Some folks also put a heating pad under their mold to force gel.

I also love the last one. I actually like how the colors seemed to migrate to different corners! Very unusual and striking.

Where did you get you POP colors from?
