Here's the cut:
I see no picture, only hear music. The screen is black. Maybe it's the program (TikTok) you are using; I suspect it is not fully supported by the host that SMF uses.
I found that if I Download the video to my computer (generally not something I want to do as it requires later deleting it) and then find a program that will play said video (again, not something I normally want to do), then I can view it.

Beautiful soaps, KiwiMoose.

PS. If anyone else wants to do the same, AnyDVD by Softonic will play this file. There are other that will not play it due to 'missing codec'. I actually already had AnyDVD on my laptop, so no new program to download.

I bevelled and stamped a few more soaps made during the week that I'm planning to take to our games weekend in about 5 weeks - cutting it slightly fine for cure time, but I really wanted a few more options to take along. Stamp is a D20, which seemed appropriate for the geeky crowd...

The pink and purple was less vibrant than expected from my new micas (the photo makes it look a bit brighter than in real life), but still pretty. It's lavender and rose scented, and will be named Faerie Farts.
The green swirls are scented with a green tea and mint FO, which behaved beautifully and will be called Sylvan Suds. I made a small batch with a tester bottle and definitely need to order more. (Out the bottle, it's slightly reminiscent of Fairy Liquid here in the UK, but a bit nicer and will hopefully continue to mellow a little during cure.)

Other soaps already on the curing rack from a few weeks back: Salty Sea Dragon, Cherry Kobold, Rambling Druid.

Not shown: processed-meat coloured, seized solid, crumbly looking, strawberry soap. Managed to shove and squish it into moulds, but boy are they Ug-leeee! 😬😆

My browser somehow decided to interpret it as an audio-only file (?). I eventually downloaded the vid and viewed it with a general-purpose media player without issues.

@KiwiMoose Once you're grown-up, we will teach you how to properly use the video upload function. 😜😇
Thankyou! I never knew this.

It's a TikTok that's saved to my phone as a .mov file
nice soap! and @earlene, thanks for the download tip. I downloaded and then played the video on my ipad without any extra software.

Here’s the soap I just made to test OT’s Pink Papaya. Gotta love masterbatching when it comes to making soap on a whim. I picked the scent as one of several to try for my DIL who likes tropical/fruity scents. It‘s a bit on the glitzy side, but I had fun swirling and the FO behaved very well.

I know. I’ve been feeling very giddy all day but my husband isn’t really responding with the appropriate level of admiration and enthusiasm (or any enthusiasm actually) so I turned to my fellow soapers.
Tell your DH that a fellow soaper is admittedly a bit jealous of such a FABULOUS score! ✨💗

Good lookin' soap there, @Ford and have fun with your new toy!

Several soapy things today. I fondled turned my curing bars. Had another quick trip to my sister's house and again affirmed her decision to start using my soaps instead of decorating with my soaps -- lovin' the lather after a 2 year cure!

Also started planning a holiday soap. Mrs. Zing suggested a snow fall and says, "It would be better if somehow you could turn your bars onto their side so it would be a tall bar instead of a horizontal bar." I says, "Um, yes, there's a mold for that, it's called a tall & skinny." She says, "Ooh! You should totally get one of those!" Guess what's in the ol' shopping cart?!

And finally, @KiwiMoose : WOULDJA STOP BREAKING THE INTERWEBS ALREADY??!!

Yeah, the Hubbies out there. I'm not sure mine would be thrilled if I were to bring a baking rack into the house, BUT when I talk about whether or not I want to spend the money to go to a soapmaking conference, he's "it's only $xx", you should definitely go. The older he gets, the more willing his is to spend money. He used to look at almost everything as overpriced, and still does sometimes, but more often than not, he seems to feel that if it's something we really enjoy, it's worth the money.

I, too am envious that @Vicki C found such a nice baking rack for FREE! Having paid full price for such things in the past, I have to say, it was a fabulous find and you deserve the enthusiastic responses from all of us to make up for your DH's lack thereof!

Getting ready to chop up some “peppermint candies” soap for toppers. Im excited for this lol. I hope it works out as planned.

Although i didnt enter any soap in the Soap Challenge Club September challenge, i did download the recipe and made some clear mp soap.

I have mixed results lol. I tried to do a hybrid cp and mp soap like the video from From Grace To You. My cp soap just layered on top (instead of staying put on one side like i planned). The cut bars are a little cloudy looking for the clear mp soap, but the thinner end cuts are pretty clear. Plus it seems that some of the blue mica mixed in with the clear soap, so it has kind of a blue tint to it as well.

Abby in the background for some interest lol.
