I cut my first attempt this morning. The hanger swirl was not as bad as my previous attempts but I am not loving the color combo. Looked at a trusty color wheel and ordered a new mica from Nuture (snuck in a tall skinny mold too) for attempt 2.

If anyone struggles with color I found this to be helpful.

Love the color calculator! Thank you from the color challenged!

Really? Yours were great! Maybe try again without the pressure of a contest :)
Hanging up the hanger. :lol:

I have never had a good hanger swirl. This challenge was as close as I got to okay. The rest of my attempts became homeless soap. (I donate the fugly stuff every couple of months)

You are WAY too hard on yourself... those soaps were much better than "okay."

I felt that all of the soaps were beautiful, I had a really hard time narrowing down to only 3. I am somewhat speechless that I placed when there were so many great entries.
Thank you @Primrose for running the challenge. This was definitely outside of my comfort zone, so I am still in shock. But entering this has helped me get past my fear of swirls, so thanks for the push.
