I've been drooling over other people's homemade soaps long enough! I want to make my own!
But I keep seeing these beautiful bars of soap with one side textured - almost like they went back and poured some melted soap, etc on them right before they hardened completely. Since I don't have a clue what I'm doing (and I'm going to try cp for the first time soon) - is that what happens? Or is there some other trick to getting those really cool looking bars of soap?
