    The tiger stripe technique has always intimidated me for some reason. But I decided it was time to go big or go home.

    Pretty happy I did, too! I'm so pleased with the way this came out.

    Thanks, y'all! :D

    I used the tiger stripe technique! Basically, putting a line of soap batter down the middle of the mold, and pouring alternating colors on top of that line until out of soap. I brought my batter to barely a medium trace before starting, and that helped make the distinct lines but also allowed the weight of the soap to press each layer down a little.

    Those are very lovely! I didn't tilt my mold, just went straight down the center. I also poured very small amounts of the black and orange and yellow, and larger amounts of the white, which made the accent colors a little thinner in the final soap. :)
