Cut the soap and gasp in horror (or awe if you’re not cutting and placement challenged) at the abstract citrus soap art. Here, I used Bramble Berry’s straight cutter (commonly used by pastry chefs to clean up flour and goo in commercial kitchens). You can also use a sharp knife or crinkle cutter.If you needed a reminder about why to use a funnel to pour your seal layer, the photo above should scare you straight. Hands are shaky, faulty things and a funnel helps to ensure a straight soap pour that doesn’t get rivulets of sealing soap down the sides of your tube. There’s another picture on yesterday’s tutorial showing a lovely streak of blue going down the side of the slice soap insert.
Look for the beautiful photograph later today proving that yes, good photography really does hide a multitude of sins. If you missed yesterday’s tutorial, you can find it here.
