Haven't swirled in awhile. I still can't get the swirls to go through the soap, sigh. Oh well, I'm pretty happy with this fo (it's Scent Works). Was very easy to soap, no A. Slight D to creamy yellow, which was fine. I don't know how this pic is going to come out because I edited it differently that normal:undecided

Nice. I like the way those swirled. I think I'm going to just give up and just go solid for right now. It worked good for my cinnamon, but that does irritate the skin if you use too much.

Getting a nice smooth solid down is a good idea before getting involved in swirling. Once you get the solid down, the swirling is easier. Now I just wish I could figure out how to get those dang swirls throughout the soap.

Thanks so much to everyone! Lindsay, I used a sage green oxide for the swirl. Not very much, just a titch. I'm not sure I have a "swirling technique", lol. I go with a very light trace (which means, the minute the mixture emulsifies or changes color). Then I take out about 3/4 to 1 cup of soap and put it in a small container. I add the color to that and mix well (actually, I usually mix the color with some of the soaping oil first). Then I add the fo/eo at the last minute to the main batch and pour it in the mold. Then I take the colored part and pour it high all around. Then I pour it low all around. Then I take a chop stick and swirl. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't, lol!
