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