Funnel Soap

I finally got the chance to make soap again! I decided to make a funnel soap. It is so easy and exactly like it sounds. I took lots of pictures, but they seem to be lost.

I used a base of olive-coconut-palm-shea with beer as my liquid. I seperated my soap into 5 plastic cups and colored it blue, yellow, red, green, and purple (although it looks blue). Then I poured each color through the funnel into my mold. I poured half of each soap through the funnel twice. Then I used a skewer to lightly swirl in a starburst pattern from the center out.
I know I used a lot of colors but it goes with the scent. The green is hard to see because it isn't very dark. I did not cover or insulate because I didn't want it to gel. I'll unmold in a few days and let you know how it turned out.
