Has anyone tried this? I've been looking at some videos and the results are interesting and beautiful.
Sadly the design would be gone after the soap is used for a while since it's only on the surface, but lovely while it lasts.

@katili That's beautiful! I love the color combo and the texturing you got.

Can you tell me about how much soap batter you would need to deep 10 bars or so?
Thank you :)

It took less soap batter than I thought it would. I was using leftover from another batch of soap I mixed up (I made a bigger batch and just used a smaller mold) so I don't have great notes about how much I had left, but I would guess I had roughly 18oz of extra batter, and then I made 3 circle soaps in a Brambleberry mold with the leftovers after dipping my soaps. I had 4 3x3" bars that I dipped.
 
Those are beautiful, @Vicki C !
I'm guessing you used neons to get those striking colors?
Thanks! I mixed in some neons with other colors. The soap was meant to look like northern lights. I’m not usually a neon soap lover but it suited the design. I was recognized for “best technique” for this soap. 🥰 (Me to husband: “I won a thing!” Husband: “Good, honey.”)

"Northern lights" was my first thought. Nice work!
 
After @dibbles mentioned it I looked at the Soap Challenge Club site. I really thought yours should have gotten top prize @Vicki C. I didn't even realize it was your entry either. So, so gorgeous!
I am definitely going to try this. Where do you purchase your neons, @Vicki C ?
You’re so kind! I got them from Mad Micas. I got the set but hadn’t used them other than trying them out.

Translation: Oh, thank goodness she has someone to talk to about SOAP!! 😂
More like - Me: “blah blah blah blah soap blah blah” Husband: “Good honey”

You “nailed” it1 I looked at your soap, turned my iPad to my husband and said, “Doesn’t this look exactly like the Northern Lights”? Beautiful!!
