    38th batch since I've started doing this back in late August, including different soap dough recipes and total failures that went into the trash.

    Made this for a friend at work who likes Downy fabric softener smell and just had a baby this past spring. Second attempt at this kind of design and it didn't come out horribly.

    These are the four prior batches. Ignore that stack of soaps to the right, they're all wrapped with a band of freezer paper so I can keep track of which batch was born on what day.

    Blue and white is Orange 10-fold with a bit of dark patch to anchor, red/black/white is apple and raspberry, white/brown is another coffee scent since the last 2 I've tried were meh, and the pink is Rosebud.

    They're all very pretty :)

    My favorites are the first one and the coffee one.

    I love the blue and white one. That is a really nice flat layer.

    Nicely done on all of them. I especially like the blue and white one. The crisp line between the colors is very impressive.

    I used a Dewalt electric palm sander to get it to settle down perfectly. I put the foam bottom plate against the mold, turned it on for about 5 seconds and gravity did the rest.

    All very nice, but the blue one is a smasher. Love it.
