    Impossible to pick one – I could never use soaps that are as beautiful as these… they are art.

    Just amazing talent and great splendor of color. I would love to see one photo of all the soaps…that would be an amazing cover for the Saponifier. I just cannot select one…there is just so much art in this craft!

    Stunning! Please tell us how to do these, I make simple swirls, and have always wondered how to get even more beautiful results. Please share the secrets to all of these incredible swirl styles!!

    I am awed by the beauty of these soaps…choosing one would be an injustice to the others, all of them are simply amazing

    I am glad i don’t have to make that decision. Looks like i have a lot to learn (again)

  17. Yolanda Mayse says:

    I had to go all the way to an Australian website to find out about “Saponifier”. Can’ t wait to start my subscription. I’m a newbie and I’m lovin’ it!!! Lookbook is promising. Want to learn all I can about swirling. These soaps are “AWESOME”. Great job to all contestants.
