Mouth Watering Ginger Lime

I've made gradation soap before, or I called it ombre style soap.  Usually I use non-bleeding stable colorants for this kind of gradation.  Non-bleeding colorants make the gradation look more like geological canyon formation, you can see the defined lines between shades.  This time, I was going for the opposite, using bleeding colorants to make the gradation smooth and seamless.  The technique is exactly the same as my ombre soap, if you have not seen my video yet, click here: Making Ombre Layer Soap 
It will still take time for the colors to bleed into each other.  But I'm expecting by the end of cure time that gradation should be smooth and seamless.  Guess how many layers I poured?  8!
This batch is scented with Ginger Lime, a fragrance I totally forgotten I bought.  It popped out when I was digging into my fragrance boxes looking for something else (I need help organizing my over flowing fragrance collection!).  And I thought maybe it's telling me to use it!

    Should I tell you that Titch went through all my FOs and organised them alphabetically into boxes for me? Nah, maybe I shouldn't say that to you LOL
