Tiger Stripe You Wore Me Out!

Recently there's a soap style trend circulating across the whole community, the tiger stripe style.  It is done by pouring alternating color layers gazillion times on top of each other to form the striping effect like what you see on a tiger, or zebra.  It is a very time consuming process therefore the soap batter has to stay thin trace for quit some time.  Have that in mind I had to carefully select my recipe and fragrance combination, it is not easy I can tell you that.  I've only done 2 so far and this style of soap totally wore me out!  I counted, I poured at least 55 times in that Love Spell soap!  Yes you read it correctly, 55 TIMES!!!  If you don't believe me, go count it yourself, LOL.
