Here’s a quick photo of the first soap I made. I layered the colors into a fairly narrow pitcher, which I know now is not the best for getting a good layering/feathering effect. The soap has five color layers, but it’s hard to distinguish the bottom two, even IRL. From top to bottom: alkanet (lighter), annatto + paprika, rhubarb, alkanet (darker), indigo + alkanet + AC. All in all, the infused oil colorants worked reasonably well for the technique and the colors are close to what I planned. After going through IG last night, I also realize the color scheme is not uncommon!

I've made my one & only " in pot wonder soap for our challenge' no matter what it looks like its being entered' I used powder goat milk dissolved in a little distilled water' then added it to the hot oils' first time using "Powered Goat Milk" Ive used fresh GM in the past' Im hoping it doesn't discolor the soap.
Soap is getting happy going into jell phase @ the moment. fingers crossed it turns out w/ out any discoloration? It smells wonderful I used lime' tangerine' grapefruit EO'S + Pineapple Cilantro FO. I used Three colors & took a snapshot of soap in the pot before pouring into mold. 💫👍🏼🧼

Question - am I allowed to post pictures elsewhere on social media? Or is that not allowed until after the challenge has closed?
I would wait to post on social media, especially if you might have forum members following you there. I have seen past challenges where some forum members I follow on Insta (mobjackbay comes to mind as I really enjoy seeing her posts on Insta) have waited until after the entry thread is opened to share what they created for the challenge on social media. No sharing in the forum as a rule, but give social media sharing some consideration before doing.

You know, I am not sure about that as it is not solid enough to come out yet. A little maybe leaked but it seemed to work pretty well. My impatience was the problem I’m afraid.
Someone else had posted about political yard signs being great soap mold / divider material and they are right!
Ha - I was able to unmold today and yes the soap completely filled up the cavities! 😊Now that it’s there I think I’ll leave it be and use it as is.
