Carrot Cold Process Soap Tutorial

The group from The Soap Queen has been creating a lot of food inspired soap lately.  And their recent soap project happens to be Carrot Cold Process Soap. For this particular project, they used a technique to the Horse Scuplted Layers .  The concept is to scoop out thick soap out of a mold into a particular shape and the negative shape is filled with more soap batter of a different color.  Because the carrot shape in this project is not particularly complicated, it is a great project to try the sculpted layer technique for the first time.
