I was driving through the mountains this weekend and got inspired. Scented with cedar, cypress, patchouli, litsea and a touch of lemongrass EOs.

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, especially for my first try at a graphic soap. Anyone have any idea what the discoloration in the "sky" (woad powder) could be though? It wasn't there when I cut; it showed up the next morning. Thanks for looking.

Beautiful soap! Sometimes I get that discoloration bloom around particulates like poppy seeds or Herb speckles. I don't think it's a problem.

No idea what the woad speckles are, be interested to know.

Thanks, all.

Seawolfe, the sky is woad, mountains are indigo and activated charcoal, and the trees are spirulina. The woad now seems to be morphing into a greenish color - I'm totally at a loss!

Could it be from the spirulina? I had a similar effect in my earl grey soap when I added parsleyImageUploadedBySoap Making1393405648.414439.jpg powder.
