I'm trying a reverse secret feather (secret Christmas Tree) technique. I'm having trouble when laying down a new layer, it breaks through or disperses the previous layer. Soap Queen advises pouring over a spatula but it still dispersed the previous layer. If you've had success at this, let me know. Thanks!

Your batter may be too thin. It works best for me at light-medium trace. You could try gently spooning the layers on rather than pouring. Here is a video that might help.

Thanks for this video! Yes, I was soaping at my thinnest trace yet, more like an emulsion. I'll do it again at a thicker trace. I really like this design and determined to get it. I appreciate your help.
