    That's very pretty. I love your swirls. How long did you have to wait before unmolding and slicing?

    Those turned out great!!! Congratulations. I love making salt bars because I can unmold and cut in 3-4 hours generally.

    Thanks all. Last swirl I did was 10 years ago when I was soaping and it didn't turn out well in HP.

    Pina Colada scent, And I can't tell you how long because I forgot to write the time down, but I would say 2-3 hours later. I was cooking and forgot. You can tell as they are a bit crumbly on some edges.
    It was 130 Degrees when I pulled it out of the tube.
    I could have cut it at about 1 to 1-1/2 hours I think.

    Thought I was going to lose this batch as the FO accelerated. Glad I didn't add milk to this one !

    That is the worst thing about the PVC, you can't squeeze it to see if it is too soft :(

    Gonna try another swirl but watching the time ;) Also going to put one color on one side of the bowl and the other color on the other side (like 1/2 and 1/2) and see how it swirls when it is poured. Maybe I will twist as I pour.

    Ok 2nd batch, 1/2 salt, Rose color swirl (not as good- I think I should just do 1/4 of batter to color), Cut at just shy of 2 hours.
    Which means the BLUE one was cut at more 3 hours later.

    I used 2 TBS Yogurt in the oils for the Rose one. Both batches are 2# oils each

    Obviously you can't see very close :lol:
    I use a Dough scraper, it came with the
    Loaf Cutter Mold from amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B071734L9V/?tag=skimlinks_replacement-20
    It's ok, but i wonder how long I can wash it before it warps or breaks.
    I bought it because it came with the Wavy cutter and flat cutter

    Just posting a few more for myself so I can reference them in the future.
    Square ones are regular soap, 1/2 rounds are Salt
