Just waiting for it to cure enough to cut.  Looking forward to seeing how it turns out!

Marbled, Honeysuckle/Lavender Soap

I am getting the hang of marbling color as a bit of "icing" on soap!  This is a batch of honeysuckle and lavender scented soap and I am thrilled with how it turned out.  The colors change the composition of the soap a bit, so it is rather tricky; also, the colors sometimes change in the process (this purple started out as a bright blue!).  Now, the soap will cure for at least 4 weeks....

I have one more batch waiting to cure a few days before cutting, and for this batch, I got out my marbling book and attempted a get gel with the stylus.  I also tried to mix the colors into the entire batch of soap, rather than as an "icing".  We'll see how it turned out soon!
