The first soaps- There are more delicate swirls seeing as it was done with a small spoon and less pulling of the soap.


The second video soaps- This is a more standard way to spoon swirl. After cutting, I wiped each soap face down with a damp cloth to clean up the mica (cutting drags the mica across making it look a bit messy, a quick wipe down clears it right up). Remember, this was 2 spoon turn overs.

This is my first attempt at soap 2 (no video shown). I turned the spoon over 3 times, and it tends to over swirl, especially if laying down mica lines. Other than that, it was made in the exact same way as soap 2.
