I had an amazing weekend of soaping. Tried my first hand at hanger swirl. I had to improvise and bend my own hanger because my tool hasn't arrived in the mail but I'm pretty happy with the outcome.

Looks like a bit if ash on the top (more on one side of the soap than the other). Usually I do bright colors but I was looking for something darker and cooler so I went with the black luster and electric blue.

Where did you get your blue? I am having no luck at all with colors. I love BOLD and BRIGHT but I'm getting dull and drab. Maybe I'm just not using enough of the stuff.

Looks great! Wouldn't know it was your first hanger swirl if you hadn't said so!

I used electric blue from BB. 1/2 tsp for 2 lb mold. The color stayed pretty true to what I used. I was somewhat disappointed in the black....it morphed to more of a grey. But overall I am happy with the turnout.

Thanks for the info. I think my problem is I'm not using enough. I'll see tonight when I get home and cut my April challenge. I used the entire sample in each of the batters.
