So, did some rainbow embeds. A task I feared. Difficult, due to time and mixing. I really need a helper. Here is the best I created. Will try to use a larger rectangular mold tomorrow with a white background.

Sorry this is for bombs.

They remind me of body bonbon on YouTube. I bet they'll be absolutely amazing in the tub. Maybe you can use those extruders you got would help? Do one color, tamp it down, add the next?

Yep. I saw that video. She does amazing work! I can not copy. Too rustic/ammatur. I have no idea how she got such clean rainbow lines. What a pro!

And no, the extruders were A major fail for my embeds. I do better for now rolling it out like cookie dough. Cutting by hand or using clay cutters.

I'm thinking more like a cylindrical mold. You fill the end that you remove it from without trying for the fancy designs. Alternatively you could just get an silicone embed mold (effectively a small diameter cylinder) to attempt to keep everything uniform.

But I saw one YouTuber said that silicone mold is not for the clean edge bath bombs. Though I have only tried it once with silicone mold, and it is a mess. Maybe some bath bomb guru will chime in. ;)
