Hey! That is my soap! How funny to see it pop up. That is called a DNA swirl, done in a slab.

In a loaf, if you swirl soap that is poured in lines running the depth of the mold and cut as you usually do a loaf mold, you'll end up with vertical lines, like the bottom of this soap. They can be broad or very fine depending on how you pour and swirl of course.

Wow @newbie that's probably my favorite linear swirl soap I've seen so far!
And thanks for the picture of linear swirls in a loaf mold! It has a pretty cool effect!

It must have been a different video. I didn't make one while doing that soap- just took pictures.

Thanks, Szasza! There are so many cool patterns that start with lines and I'm hoping to see some amazing ones this month.

It’s been a swirling whirlwind in my house. Four batches of soap, 6 different molds, but I still can’t cut a slab without butchering the soap. If there’s an upside, it’s that I now have plenty of trimmings for confetti bars. I’ve also conquered discoloring FOs.

Is there a video of you making this gorgeous soap? I thought I had run across it on YouTube but can't find it now. Or did I dream that? o_O
I'm thinking you might be speaking of this video:

I too thought of it when seeing Newbie's photo. It is such a beautiful design.

"....I found that the maker of the video calls 'fleur de lis' that you can find here."
I'm such a curious person, had to look up what 'fleur de lis' meant in English.

From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fleur-de-lis:
The fleur-de-lis or fleur-de-lys (plural: fleurs-de-lis, or fleurs-de-lys) is a stylized lily (in French, fleur means "flower", and lis means "lily") that is used as a decorative design or motif.

Not really a linear swirl (yet), but I think there's potential.
Szaza you are getting really close to the look my friend had in her soap! She can't find pics of it unfortunately.

I have yet to make soap - life is a bit crazy for me at the moment. This week should be better for me time wise, but of course the temps are forecasted for 80°F = hot soap dungeon. I may have to take over the kitchen to get this done, lol!

You're right! That was the video I was thing of. Thanks :D
Two great minds and all ;). I KNEW exactly which video right away as this design is one I'm dying to do; too many lovely ones out there to attempt. You are quite welcome.
