@TashaBird didn't you have this problem with one of your soaps with embeds?
Yes, I did. Still a mystery. Actually, looking back it seems as though it was between two layers. Still, there was only a half hour or so between. So, still a mystery.

it's attracted to the weed :-D
At first it was just on the borders of the soap, then it started appearing around the embeds. So weird! I’d think if it was the .5% vanillin it would be throughout! Soap is so weird.

This is the third time I’ve seen that kind of halo. The first example is in a soap @dibbles made for a competition, where batter was swirled over top of a diagonally sliced pre-made half loaf that was already in the mold. The second example is in the “Browsing Soap Photos” thread where white soap sits over a black diagonal layer. Now your soap with embeds. Perhaps a temperature gradient is a contributing factor. Past that, I have no ideas.

I’m super curious if it’ll change over the cure. 🤷🏻‍♀️
Like I said, soap is weird.
