Here's my attempt at February's challenge. So much went wrong when making this
??? Where’s the goods??
I tried a couple of times to attach the photos but it didn't work . Will try again!
I like! Looks like rocks you’d see on Mars! And that’s not a bad thing. The contest didn’t state what planet the rocks had to come from!
They look good. At what point did you try molding the rocks? I was a little hasty when making mine and they started crumbling like it looks yours did. I took mine out of the mold when it was just hard enough to stay together.
It was around the 20 hour mark, I think? I spilled most of my oils just as I was about to add the lye water and had to attempt to reformulate my recipe. Unfortunately, I was running low on olive oil and thought I'd take this opportunity to try out rapeseed wax for the first time. When I unmolded them it was already fairly hard and started to crumble. I blamed the rapeseed wax. But, on the bright side, the rough texture makes it look like a rock found in nature. Or on Mars
Ah yes, I remember reading your description of what went wrong. I think they look pretty cool, like something I'd find at the lake shore occasionally.
I think they look cool, too! Love the red especially..
