Oh yes....that is gorgeous! Was this done in a slab mold? I'm beginning to think that's the only way to get really good swirls. I've gotten a few to look nice on the top of my logs but it doesn't go through. :/
Not Sara but I have gotten some gorgeous swirls in an MM mold. you have to the soap just right, thin enough to swirl but thick enough to support the swirl, pour in a thin stream from varying heights then swirl till you get the desired effect. I think my Black Raspberry Vanilla bars on my website are some of my prettiest swirls.
The swirls were created using micas in a MM. Becky explained the technique very well. Thank goodness the FO I used was really easy to work with or I wouldn't have had time to do two different swirl colors. I can't take all the credit though... I learned from the best... Vicki :lol
I use a ladle and scoop out some of the raw soap before scenting and put it into a measuring cup. I only use a small amount of mica (1/2 teaspoon) and mix well. This is your swirl material. If you know how your FO behaves you can easily create beautiful swirls.
I LOVE mica! Have you checked out the micas at Costal Scents? They have 94 colors and sell in bulk... perfect for a mica coop! I need more mica. I am releasing a three new soaps and they will have mica swirls. Sara your soap is beautiful
