Just want to say hi to everyone!  I'm a Craftster newbie!  I want to show you guys my U2 inspired Melt & Pour soap.

I went to U2 concert in June, LOVE IT!!!  The neon light, the black Bono outfit, the white from Adam (the base player) and his colorful base instruments, City of Blinding Lights, Vertigo, Mysterious Way, Bloody Sunday, Moments of Surrender...  So many songs!  Here's my U2 Soap, she really moves in a mysterious way!  It is scented with Blackberry Amber, fruity yet sensual.

I used white base and alternating the pour with clear base that colored with black and red mica:

Then I changed to copper mica, like the changing stage lights:

Kept on piling up, last change to lavender mica:

I let it cool down and this is the slab I got right side up:

I cut them into bars, every bar is unique and different and no repeat!

Since I'm new, I can't directly upload photos...  Sad  I have to use links, sorry to have you guys click so many times.  I hope you enjoy it!

How do you like it?
