Here is my second pour, Charcoal lavender. It looks good to me and was stoked about it. When I cut it the 2nd layer from the bottom (White) separated from the 3rd layer, don't know why...maybe poured to cold? but at least I can remelt and try again

Did you spray the top of the soap between layers with 91% rubbing alcohol? You need to do that so the layers stick.
You should be able to find a video on YouTube about making layers with m&p

Ditto what Obsidian said about spritzing with alcohol between layers. And I bet you could fix it if you have a heat gun. Just stick it back in the mold, remelt the white layer, spritz with rubbing alcohol and put the top back on.

I say I did spray but now I am Second guessing if I did, I do know I did spray but maybe missed that layer...

They look really pretty. If this is m&p I have a fix for you. Melt some additional m&p, carefully spray the inside of each side, trying not to get alcohol on the outside of the slices. Pour a thin layer of m&p and glue the layers back together. The soap that runs down the outside of the bars will peel right off if you do not get alcohol on the outside. I called my daughter and asked her, she is the one that does our m&p soaps

I'm not an MPer. If you are using a silicone mold or a wooden mold (not plastic) would it be possible to put the soaps back in the mold in a warmed oven and let the oven warm them just a bit and stick them together better? Words for CP?

Will not work well for m&p. Gluing them back to together is the best
