I made some 'man soap' last night and wasn't really going for anything fancy, just a 3 color ITP swirl. I'm really happy with the color contrast and was super-surprised when I took pics of the cut bars. One of the photos kinda looks like a butterfly or tiki mask so I got a bonus . . . also got glycerin rivers but still think it looks pretty cool. :cool:

Nice. Try taking the two center bars, flipping them upside down and putting the black edges together.

I was thinking the exact same thing as Obsidian! Reverse your bars for the other butterfly. I think the swirls will look even more elegant. What a fine batch you got!

Like this? I played with the bars and flipped some pics 180 degrees. My eyes see scary creatures in the first 2 pics but the last one looks more cute than sinister. Consider it a Rorschach test, what do you guys see?

I see what you mean. My eyes are drawn instantly to the face in the very middle and much less so to the swoop of the black lines.
