Challenge Specific Rules
- You must use a slab mould (It doesn’t have to be a commercial slab mould, I used a plastic box, but your soap design must be formed it the top of a slab of soap)
- You must use at least two colours (plain soap batter can be classed as one of those colours)
- Your design must be created from cut out pieces of soap assembled into a single colour of base soap.
- You may create any mosaic design you wish
- Your entry must show at least one bar of your finished mosaic soap, but you are welcome to show us the whole slab.
- Please tell us a little about the inspiration behind your design and your process of making the design when you post your entry onto the entry thread. You are welcome to also tell us other information about your soap such as the recipe you used or what you have scented your bars with.


Any problems or difficulties feel free to send me (Saponista) a PM and I will do my best to help.

Quick question:

Can I use m&p for part of this challenge? I had an idea where the transparency of m&p might be nice.

Haha, BattleGnome, I'm glad you asked this question! I was thinking of perhaps the same use for a transparent tile....
