First funnel soap!

I discovered this fab new technique and thought I'd give it a go. I'm gobsmacked at the result, to say the least. It looks completely different cut than it does in the mould, and no two slices are the same. I scented this one with "Blue Amberwood" and as it's a discolouring FO, I'm hoping the "cream" swirls will eventually go a browny colour. So far it's gone a bit of a strange yellow but we'll have to wait & see.

In the mould

Cut!

I love the colours of these (clever old stick). I hope it doesn't discolour.
More please! ;-)

Thank you ladies :-)

It has discoloured - gone a strange yellow for some unknown reason, but it should go a browny/beige. Not much sign of it yet though.

Has it discoloured yet?

It's started to discolour to a deep beige colour now. When I think it's more or less gone as far as it will, I'll post another pic.

I'm mesmerized! Those bars are gorgeous! I love the look and the fragrance sounds to-die-for!!

Thanks Heather
It doesn't look much like the original pic now. As I thought, the lighter part has gone a sort of caramel colour - doesn't seem to be much of the yellow around now.
Still smells good - I like this FO because it sticks well in CP. If I can borrow a camera, I'll try to remember to take a pic of how it looks now.

If you want to see some really good funnel swirls, have a look at Corrie's blog (lomond soap). She's an expert and making me very jealous now!
