.. without actually trying. :)
Batter traced fast so I just plopped into a mold as neatly as I could. Swirled with a stick a bit and that's it.
It was recipe with 25% RBO. I love how the soap turns out but it traces so fast.
Oh and note partial gel. Bottom didn't gel haha.

The one on the right looks like one of the dragons from Chinese New year!

ETA: sorry, I tend to be a tad dyslexic when it comes to left and right..

Thank you all :)
The plan was blue, pink and white and FO was Clean (type) from NG.
Colours are blue mica that morphed into aqua/green, pink is pink OZ clay + neon pink from BB and white is TD. There's a bit of TD throughout other colours and it caused a bit of crackling (not visible on the photo from my lovely phone camera).
I was amazed too, that's why I wanted to share. My swirls are usually quite meh lol.
Steve85569, I think I plopped it more on one side trying to get some sort of swirl instead of just blobs of colour as the batter was really thick. I just swirled everything through with kebab stick and that's it.

I see.
I have problems like that sometimes and then spend an unreasonable amount of time trying to duplicate the results. Especially when they turn out like yours did.

I love the colors! The partial gel looks good too. My best looking soaps are always by accident! lol
