Fabulous Entries, everyone! Some of those inspiration photos make me want to make even more marble soaps, now.

The Entry Thread is now closed to additional entries for the Marble soap challenge. When the voting link is ready, I will send it via private messages (aka Conversations) to all participants on the sign up list.

Winners will be announced on September 30, 2020 after voting closes at 2:00 pm GMT.

Good Luck to everyone!

I feel pretty bummed I missed this so I will show my fail. This soap crumbled up pretty bad but I can't make soap until I can get some of the supplies I need to fill the hole that mouse may have come in from.
It looks like you had a beautiful thing going with the soaps you made, even if cutting didn't go well. I'm sorry it didn't work out for you to enter a soap this time.

I learned two things. One- use 1 tsp of salt ppo or per 500g tops. I used 15g, which is about a tbsp (I should have known better but I usually use SL anyway) and two- pour colored batter or colorants to the side and use the funnel pitcher. That could have helped me out too.

I think they are pretty! You can call it "The Quarry" - because it looks like a marble quarry with big hunks of marble that have been carved out of it.

Thanks but this is the weirdest quarry I've seen. It would be grand to see a real one though.

The next challenge is hosted by szaza and I believe she plans on posting the challenge on Oct 2nd, so watch for it. It can take a few days for the banner to get updated at the top of the page, so keep an eye on the list of posts in this (the Lye-Based Soap Forum) forum.

Winners will be announced in a little less than an hour. We are still shy one vote, so if you (the who hasn't voted yet) read this in the next 45 minutes, you still have time.
