But look at these swirls! These are melt and pour soaps. I know there is a technique to it. Does anyone have any suggestions to get swirls like these? I tried to use a spoon and twist it like how I do to create swirls in cp soaps and that didn't work. I'm going to try the skewer method next.

Here is a tutorial




Another way that you can do it is to use an log mold with dividers.

I've heard the same, original poster. Not sure why people think you can't swirl with Melt and Pour. A quick google search yields quite a few hits.

Yeah that’s true. Usually when I see swirls in mp soap they’re boring and don’t look like the ones I posted though.
