You can only submit one entry, but you can change which one until the entry thread closes. If you are unable to modify your previous entry, contact the challenge leader (dibbles this month) and the mod will help you with that.
oops - didn't see your reply, alioop - sorry! :)

I'm lucky to have a handy partner. 😊

I found this small silicone slab mould in my mp stuff from years ago. I think I bought it in a pound shop baking section. It never got used, because it's too floppy. These days we have a workshop, so I asked her if she'd be able to knock up a wooden support for it, thinking it would be a few weeks or months before she got round to it, which would give me time to do plenty of smaller test batches to get into a groove before I used this one. It's not huge, holds around 1.2 litres when filled to a good depth for a soap bar. I think I'll get 6 good sized bars out of this.

Anyway, this afternoon she was doing bits and pieces in the workshop, so she threw this together from some pieces of pallet wood and a bit of thin ply at the bottom.

I'm quite chuffed with it, now I need to make a big batch of soap to fill it! Lol...

Made my first beer soap on the left—Irish Stout. Also the first time I’ve attempted some sort of hanger swirl. On the right is lemon poppy. I hope the scents stick a while.
What are your colorants for the stout soap? Beautiful colors and swirls. Also impressively straight layers on the lemon, I know that's hard to do!

I believe, though I will tag @dibbles here to be sure, that you can change your entry photo up to the time of the entry thread closing. I'm also pretty sure that you can submit only two bars from the same one loaf - in other words, you can't post entry photo of two bars from two different loaves/attempts...if that makes sense!
I understand... it would be keep what I've already posted or use the new ones (if allowed) - never a mixture of both.

Thank you!
For the colors on the beer I used Nurtures Mocha Brown, TD, and a very small bit of Activated Charcoal. I thought working with beer would be tough but those **** stripes were deceptively tricky 😂

This is the fanciest soap (fancy soap!) I've made so far. It's got cocoa butter, lard, olive oil, avocado oil, coconut oil, coconut milk powder, and colloidal oatmeal with Sweet Honeysuckle FO. I sprayed the top with some gold mica and dried flowers. I also did an in the pot swirl with yellow and white (it will probably be subtle as my white wasn't super bright). I'll unmold it tomorrow afternoon.

I made 2 soaps for the SoapChallengeClub. Club is run by Amy Warden. Does anyone here enter?
Which one did you enter? I picked one... but I curious what you picked! They are both beautiful, but the colors in the first are absolutely gorgeous! I've been at work all night watching everyone's YouTube video's for the challenge. Love this kiss pour technique! You did an awesome job!

Those look great! I have entered in the past but am so busy these days that I'm limiting myself to just the SMF challenges. But I still get the tutorials and enjoy looking at all the beautiful entries.

I finished packaging up my orders. It’s work! Printing, packing, shipping, labels... I’m excited for those soaps to go all over the country though!
Also, scoped out a local farmers market today. It’s super intimidating! But, it could also be fun!

Your soap is sooo pretty and one of my favorite colors!

/TashaBird, I forgot to thank you for the Jerky extruder and facebook lady extruder discs info. I want the CZ one but will try this out first to see if I can do what I want with it before investing in the higher price one. I had never thought to look in this area, always looked in the clay extruder area's and they are so small, just wouldn't work. Once again, thanks a bunch!

This morning was a culmination of much passion and pride. Friends and customers have been messaging me daily to find out when my Purple Reign soaps would be ready. You’d think they’re front row Rolling Stones tickets or something! 😆 I’m absolutely loving it!! I put my whole heart into them.
Taking bets on how fast they’ll sell out. Posted them to my IG account at 10:20am. There are only 22 bars.
Now to sit back and watch the tens of dollars roll in! Hahaha! I shoulda picked a more lucrative hobby. 😆😆😆
Also excited to cut my dinosaur soap.
Absolutely Beautiful!!!

If and when you decide to invest in another one. Check out the Art Way Hobby 2” extruder. It’s like a cross between the CZ and the jerky gun, made in US, sales folks were nice on the phone, but their online presence isn’t great.

Black Diamond and Fire Dot. I wasnt crazy about the results of the fire dot dark brown but their other colors are good. I did like the Black diamond brown.
Thanks! I'll take a look at those.

I have been dying to make more soap, but I haven't been able to with the weather! But a slight positive among a bunch of negatives is that I now have a whole bunch of tallow from my FIL's cows that sucumbed to the cold 😬😅
