Is this more chopstick work? Tell me more. Like do you run the chopstick lengthwise in your loaf?

Yes. I, pour the soap I colored white into the mold almost to the top. I leave about a 1/4 inch at the top and let the batter get very thick. To the point that the batter will hold a peak. Then I pour one color at a time. It works best if it is thinner then the first layer you pored, then hold my chopstick at a 45° angle to the batter, then I start mixing it by moving my chopstick up and down very fast along the length of the mold. It's almost like your making a very tall and skinny "O" with the chopstick. That is it. And it is kind of messy but that is what a rag is for. You can create different directions in the design by moving the chopstick at diagonals rather than up and down. Good luck.

I made a lavender soap I called Lavender Blue (dilly dilly) - it got me thinking I might try a 'collection' of oldies... there are tons of titles that would work!

There is a lot of great album covers and songs from the 70's.

It does look like the cover! Could you recommend a scale for small amounts, fragrance oils and other small amounts say around .01? thats accurate. I have a KD 8000 for my large scale and am happy. I read some of your comments from another thread, but there seems to be no primary thread on scales surprisingly.

Yes, there is... I was actually looking in the late 50's - early 60's era! They are a bit more fun and definitely in my early years.

I have both of these and they work great. They weigh down to 0.01 if you need one that goes down to 0.001 let me know and I will send you the link.
