    @DWinMadison I don't think that is a problem. Thank you for asking - you obviously could have just gone ahead and done it.

    Just got done making mine. Will cut tomorrow. I've never done a tiger swirl, so no idea if this is going to come out the way I wanted it too or not. The white part got super thick, super quick because of the TD - but normally is workable. Never fails, I try to do a challenge soap (whether here, Facebook, just challenging myself) and something always goes awry. LOL
    Guess that's why the call it a "challenge".

    64ED8F84-01BA-4B1E-BC32-FAF1FF7960FE.jpeg So, here’s the one I’m NOT entering... The idea was “White Tiger” in the colors of the Auburn University Tigers. It just turned out a little too minimal.

    Perfect color choice, and the tiger swirl is very evident.

    @Marilyn Norgart your soap looks great! I think you could enter it as it does have stripes throughout the bars. I agree that a tiger stripe is difficult to achieve in a slab mold. The entry thread opens tomorrow and will be open for a week. I know you love to make soap - try again in a loaf mold :)

    These are almost the exact same colors as mine, but quite a different design. :)

    Well, that was a spectacular failure due to an FO that accelerated trace. Back to the drawing board I have one more try in me!! Going for the safe stuff, and sticking to 3 colors....sigh.

    This is fantastic! What fragrance? I know the challenges are all about looks, but I like hearing about the smells.

    I just cut mine and I can honestly say it turned out better than I thought it would. Now, I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's entries.
