Default My First Pencil Line Soap!

I made my first pencil line soap! Scent is Berry Bewitching Brew. Here is a link to a picture. Do not know if this will work.

EDITED:
Trying photo bucket : Maybe now it will work!

I dont know about PB but you can try 'save as' and save as smaller vs larger file. HTH

Pour a layer of soap, then sprinkle a powdery colorant on top. Then pour another layer of soap on top of that. When I make pencil lines I use micas but powdered herbs or cocoa powder works well to. I sprinkle my colorant on with a super finely meshed stainless steel sieve. Pencil lines don't need to be straight either. It's fun to texture the first layer poured and then add the pencil line.

I've been wanting to try that. I've seen it done with soap balls.

Like Heather I do them with soap balls, and you can actually keep purple, purple, by using it like this in goatmilk soap. Vicki
