    I think I finally figured out how to get the batter fluid enough to do the swirls. Now it's just a matter of getting the right plant materials for colors figured out and get them infused in oils.
    p.s. - Kelp powder stinks! :(

    I'll say you have! Thats a lovely pattern!

    Is the orange tumeric?
    Also, as your comment implies you're using only plant materials, is this also true for the white, or did you use titanium dioxide?

    Thanks! :)

    I've been kinda playing around with the plants materials and color. The orange is annatto seed mixed with kaolin white clay. 2 tsp of each and made into a paste with distilled water. I did my best to strain it, but still got a little plant material in there.
    The white is just plain batter, no color and no clay. :)

    Those are some awesome swirls!! Well done:thumbs: it looks like you're starting to really get the hang of doing fluid HP!
    If you want to do multi color HP swirls with oil infusions I recommend learning to do oven HP and splitting the batter + adding the infusions before cook, so you're cooking the different colors in separate bowls. If you add the infusions after cook as superfat it might be difficult to get a good color since you can only use small amounts.

    Thanks!! :)

    Ohh ... good point on the colors. OP will have to wait a bit until I can get some pots or bowls for the oven. Right now I have two crockpots for soaping. One large and one tiny one. Not sure if those can go in the oven. I know they can't go on a stove top, my husband found that out the hard way! lol

    Going the head back over to the your thread and the one @Mobjack Bay started on infusing with isopropyl alcohol/clay. :)

    Well.. I guess you could do 2 separate colors in the 2 crock pots and swirl them after cook;)

    Nice job. I'm still not getting my swirls right. I think I need to try the hanger myself.

    That's true! Does the cook turn the colors brown or do they stick better?

    Only matcha powder (and moringa powder after a few months) has turned brown on me so far. I have a hunch powders are more likely to turn brown than infusions, but I'm not sure about that yet.
    Eta: I haven't really compared infusion in hp with infusion in cpop yet (something else to put on the to do list). I went quite quickly from oil infusions to alcohol infusions in hp because they're easier to add after cook..

    Thanks szaza! I have some plant materials sitting in alcohol as we speak. I LOVE what the hibiscus is doing so far. I can't wait to try it in a couple of weeks! :)

    How do you get soap liquid enough in HP soap? Mine always has the consistency of vaseline and is impossible to work with. I have gone to only doing CP soap now.
