I decided to make this thread as a place I can continue to post new soap pictures as I make more batches (instead of continually posting new threads).

Here are a few batches that I've made recently. All fragrances are from Bramble Berry.

Peach Prosecco
I modeled this batch off the Cucumber Melon one I made a few months back. It was an excellent soaping session, but I forgot to turn the heating pad off and overheated the loaf. This made some weird texture on the sides, much of which I planed off. Smells delicious!

Midnight Waters
When I first cut this one, I thought I'd made the top way too dramatic. But the more I look at it, the more I like it. Thankfully the layers didn't slump as much as I'd expected.

Methinks the worst part of an embed soap is tediously lowering the embed into the mold and trying to keep it from sinking into the layer below. This batch has some air bubbles due to a decently thick trace (and a stick blender that recently started blending air into soap 🙁). I wish there was a subtler transition between the sky layers, but overall I'm pleased.

I did the same, but my soaps aren't nearly as nice as yours. I unmold them, cut them, then took pictures with my phone.
