    My first attempt is in the mould :D I think my trace was too light for the majority of the loaf, however the last quarter I poured gave me a lot more of an idea of how it should be.

    Fingers crossed for the second attempt.

    That's exactly how my first attempt went!! It turned out really nice but not quite what I was going for. Best of luck the second time around!!

    You may post any attempts that you consider "fails" and will not be entering for the challenge in this thread. As said by others, any pictures for actual entries will be posted in a separate thread.

    Thanks. I just realized how the process works and was coming back to fix it. You beat me to it. Now, somebody tell me, how do you make soap?

    I have to revise my earlier statement. I'm beginning to really really like the tiger stripe visual. My second go has yielded what I think is a really attractive soap and will be my entry when the post goes up :D no more.time this month to do more but happy with what I've achieved and I will be putting this into regular rotation I think :D
