Well, here she is, finally cut. I don't understand the chemistry but her purple swirls have decided they'll stay pink so far. It took 4 days before she was hard enough for me to cut comfortably and even then was still a bit too sticky. I used essential oils in this one and didn't allow it to gel - so far the scent is holding well and doesn't seem to have disappeared much. We'll see what happens as she cures!
