    When I was looking at attempting the challenge (and without Loaf mould) I wondered about trying it in a larger round #5 container I'd put aside, but alas it had been disposed of.
    I look forward to seeing how Tiger Stripe pour behaved in your round mould, Misschief and all the other stripey pours as well!

    They are beautiful and my gosh what vibrant neon colors! Absolutely fabulous. You certainly used a lot of techniques making that soap: impression mat on the bottom, MP embellishments & piping on top, all to surround an outstanding Tiger Stripe soap. You really did a great job. Now you just need to start participating more in the forum so you can enter the challenges, as I can see you will certainly raise the bar for the rest of us!

    Looove all the entries so far! I can’t wait to see the rest! I had to do mine earlier than I planned since I’m heading out of town for the next could weekends. This has been fun.

    Yes @Primrose I was gonna say what @Marilyn Norgart said. Love that you've put in just that smidge of blue to make it pop. Very creative.

    Thanks so much guys :D I'm so happy with how it turned out. I was planning just one blue line, but I'd not divided my batter evenly enough and thought I was going to run out of black and white to fill the mould, so ended up popping a couple blue lines into it. This is one of my favourite soaps I've made so far

    The failures, not counting the soap on a stick. Trace was too thick on one, and the second one had too much white for me.
