I have a couple of Discoloring FO, Turkish Mocha, Burnt Sugar, Pumpkin Spice. If I split a batch of soap, add the FO to one and then do a drop swirl, will it discolor to look like a true drop swirl?? Hoping that description makes sense! I can see it in my head, but I'm not sure if it will come out like that. Thanks for feedback!
Some discoloring FO's will bleed the brown into adjacent uncolored or colored batter but it's usually just a rim of discoloration, so your drop swirl should look like a drop swirl, just with a blush of brown around the edges.
What Newbie said. My personal experience has been that if you try and make your swirls too wispy, the bleed from the DFO will pretty much take over any other color you might have, so keep it chunky...er, thick to ensure you have uncolored areas left.
