    OMG! I knew it reminded me of something. I was thinking Hawaii, but you are absolutely right.

    Overall I’m pleased. The colors are all in the same hue at least. I fear if I’d gone darker it might have come with some staining. Ill definitely try this swirl again. Lessons learned: Draw up more color than you think you’ll need. This project also convinced me to try MB my oils. Blessings y’all.

    FUNNY you said Bob Marley. The first thing I thought of when I saw the soap was Rasta Man Soap. This would fly off the shelf if Rasta’s were around. My sister would love this because she is a Rasta also.

    FYI : aRasta is a person who wears their hair in dread locks. Like in as mentioned before Bob Marley

    Need an opinion. I’ve decided to donate these for a silent auction to benefit a charity run by a friend called “But God Ministries” in Haiti (Ironic for a soap called “Bob Marley,” I know). Question is, would you bevel the edges?

    You are VERY kind. I can’t hold a candle to most of the artists on here, butI’m learning...working on consistency.

    I probably would, but not everyone cares about the sharp edges. How will you package them?

    Great question. I’m thinking about a shallow basket/tray with a layer of rafia. I’d place two of the facing “lotus flower” butterflies in the middle surrounded by 6 of the remaining chevrons. I’m open to better suggestions.
