    The colors really don't come through in the pictures but there really vibrant in person.

    That's cool! I want to try a watermelon at some point too after getting some better results with plant colors. :)

    Thanks.

    The watermelon didn't turn out the way I had planned it. I meant to create little yellow circles of different sizes. I spooned the yellow in and proceeded to swirl it. After 2 seconds I saw blue forming and that is when I remembered that I wasn't supposed to swirl it but the damage was already done. Moons & stars watermelon rind has all different sizes of yellow dots on it, not swirled.

    I plan on doing a whole series of watermelon soaps. I collect endangered seeds and watermelon comes in a variety of different flesh colors. There is white, yellow, orange, red & pink fleshed watermelons and some of the rinds are yellow or gold as well as green. I actually plan on doing a whole medley of soaps that mimic different rare fruits and vegetables.

    My next week soap will be a purple carrot. It has a purple skin with a round orange core. I am still waiting for my long round mold but if it's not here by Friday I will just have to try it freehand style.
