There’s a terrific tutorial by @lionprincess00 on the SMF Challenge YouTube channel if anyone is interested in learning how to do a hanger swirl, Petra style. Along with the tips I gleaned from the challenge discussion thread, I was well-prepared to give it a try. @SaltedFig has very kindly indexed the challenge threads here: https://www.soapmakingforum.com/threads/smf-soap-challenges-across-the-years.72159/ I also revisited the recent linear pour challenge technique. This batch is quite ashy, but the bars should clean up fine when they harden a bit more. ETA: I switched out the photo below to show one more soap. I forgot to mention that I did the linear part of this pour as a funnel pitcher side pour, layering the colors with the uncolored base batter in the pitcher. I think you can see the thin layers best from the side in the bottom soap on the left. As a side note, these two soaps were made from one bigger batch of base and the same mica colors. It’s interesting how much the pattern influences perception of color. I’m still learning how to balance uncolored versus colored batter to achieve the “look” I’m going for with the different patterns. ETA: one more “rough” cut of soap made with the same micas I used above (all from Nuture: Ultra Violet, which is discontinued, Iris, Vibrance Yellow) pls a blend of Caribbean and Klein Blue. This is also a swirled, linear pour, but I used used bottles to lay down the lines of batter. The yellow was highly diluted relative to the bars above. The expected side pattern from the line pour is seen on the bottom left bar. Notes: Post was also edited slightly for clarity on how I filled the pitcher for the line pour on the second soap.
