Shells, take two

No, really, don't take two...That won't leave me with many. :-P

Second attempt. Still have areas of improvement.Just so you have an idea of scale... and I do not have small hands. So, Krystalle, they are just a tad bigger than the Godiva chocolates. *grin*
Same scents as the first batch (which I really should have posted the first time):
Predominantly Sea Moss on the surface layer and main body.(Orchid, Jasmine and Violet with supporting notes of Ozone (air), Sandalwood, Musk and Moss.)

The brown layer is Spiced Mahogany (Italian Bergamot, Apple Wood and Tonka Bean, Patchouli, Cedarwood, and Oakmoss, Cardamom, Vanilla Bourbon and allspice.) Ann-Marie's instructions (Actually I think they are PJ's, but they were on Soap Queen) called for the Sensuous Sandalwood, which I don't have. This was a recommended substitution. (I really really really hope the amount of Cedarwood is minimal enough not to cause Carl problems. Otherwise, he's going to have to stay hands off. Allergic reactions are NOT welcome. Have to cut a sliver of the left over soap in this scent and have him do a skin test.)

The white streaks (and layer) are Gardenia.

I still have enough scented base for the first three layers (which is one of each scent) to do at least another batch. Trying to figure out what will blend with them for the main bulk of the bars. Maybe Vanilla?

~Wow, scale can be deceiving! I also thought they were chocolate sized.

These look great. It's nice to see how well you're learning the techniques.
