"Faux" faux funneling

I love this scent, a citrus blend, and make it regularly.  But I pulled myself out of my green and yellow rut with this batch.  It also marked my return to the faux funnel method.  I knew I was headed for trouble when my soap thickened up as I was still mixing colors.  It got thicker by the second, but I was determined to keep to my plan and doggedly whacked my funnel "pours" into the mold, using a little more force each time and holding my cups of soap higher and higher to mimic a poured look.  And with a fair bit of whacking of my poor wooden mold on the cement floor, I managed to work out most of the bubbles. But it worked.  And I am so pleased with myself.  My stubborness usually results in another round of examples for the "How Not to Soap" reel.  Now to avoid getting Saponification Cockiness...
