One thing I like about you is when you make something, you make a lot of it. It's all I could do to turn out one little soap coat in the time you magically produce a pyramid of 10. Thanks for sharing your pattern.

It took me 45 minutes to make each one.....well, that was after fiddling around for a few hours, designing the first.
