They look really good! For the pink ones... did you do your swirl in the pot? I recently tried a batch kind of colored like that, but it didn't turn out as nice.

Wow, that ginger one is gorgeous. What did you use for colors?

For the colors I use BCN's Gel Tone Colors, and for the swirls, I do swirl in the pot. But you have to make sure the batch is not real thick. Take out some of your soap, and add color, then hold it really high above the pot when you pour it, then lower the pour closer and finish pouring. I kind of hit and miss sometimes also, but as long as the batch is kind of thin, it swirls better.

The Ginger Appletini thickened up to much on me.

Thanks for the great comments. I have seen better looking soap on here.

Want to order one of Paul's slab molds soon.

Thanks for the info! I always try and swirl thick, so that may be my problem...
