    I feel pretty certain the effect on Yina's soap is from blowing on mica in oil on the surface, using personal or mechanical means.

    Unknown makers. Square soaps are M&P.

    That first M&P looks like a bamboo thicket, to me at least!

    I tried string pulling once and it didn't work too well for me, but I used soap batter. And I didn't try very hard. I think mica in oil might be a better way to go with that.

    Check out this YouTube link for an acrylic string pull technique that produces similar designs to that soap above. Then I found this - a jellyfish made using blowing and string pulling techniques. I would love to try in soap!

    I've been looking at string pulling videos and been wanting to try.. would be awesome if it works in soap! Not sure if I'd pull it off though (yes that was my attempt at a pun..*sigh*)

    By Cape Natural Soaps. They look like little avocados dropped into the soap!

    Not soap, but I could see how it could be using soap dough tiles. By Artly Snuff
