Best laid plans

So, I had this wonderful idea of swirling clear mp and cp soap. In my mind it looked all pretty and swirly and cool. I envisioned amber swirl in a creamy base. Didn't go as planned.  I had a minor disaster. Then a volcanic mess that just kept on oozing. I crammed all I could into my mold.  Then I took my leftover bits of soap and made  soap balls and dipped  them in cocoa powder for a little contrast and shoved them into the volcanic mess. I want expecting much, but when I cut them I was pleasantly surprised.
I took a soap stamp and used some more cocoa powder mixed with water to color the stamp. I think they turned out great.
