Yes, I'm aware SaltedFig isn't an active member anymore. I still think it's important to recognize SaltedFig's contribution in starting this thread and taking the time to document 3 1/2 years of these challenges.

@Mobjack Bay - somehow I missed these two, but they are both beyond beautiful! :)

I must dig up my non-challenge entry from January 2019 - it appears to have been missed off this list. I remember because I won! 😇

Your dot soaps were fantastic! OMG, those two soaps I made took me like 8 hours each because it was before I had the hang of controlling trace and using accelerating FOs.

True your photo was not in this post: SMF Soap Challenges ... across the years but the link includes your photo. If you look back at previous posts on that same page (page 1 of this thread), you'll notice that SaltedFig had not included photos from each winning entry thread for each month. Only later did we start including more links to winning photos.
I am pretty sure that SaltedFig had no intention to slight anyone. Her main goal was to create a thread with links to all previous Challenges that we as Hostesses could keep up-to-date along the way so that those Challenges and Entry threads could be easily found. In the past, finding them was more difficult.

Oh no - I wasn't thinking badly of Salted Fig in any way. She has done an amazing job in collating everything here for us. Anyway - I just looked back and yes, you are right, I found the link to the Dotty challenge in post #18. I never knew it was there until now! :) Thank you Earlene.

March 2021 - Dutch Pour Technique (asa Air Blow or Wind Blow Technique)

Challenge thread: SMF March 2021 Soap Challenge - Air Blow Technique aka Dutch Pour Technique aka Wind Blow Technique

Entry thread: Entry thread for March 2021 Challenge - Air Blow Technique aka Dutch Pour Technique aka Wind Blow Technique

A particularly difficult challenge, well met by our participants some who Perhaps a first in this monthly competition, in that all entries placed with ties for first & third place, as you will see in the entry thread.

An Honorable mention, based solely on the challenge hostess' whim, goes to:
