I got a divider for my new 7.5lb NS mold! Now to learn how to use it!!
And I got this weird little mixer thing. I actually got two. I’m not really sure what it’s for.
Yay! Merry Soapy Christmas!
That looks like a mini food processor.

It wasn’t on my wish list, but I can probably figure out a use for it. It says it’s a “mica blender”.
It’s not something I would use myself, but there are folks, who take custom blending their own mica colors very seriously, who swear by them. If it makes you a better soap maker, I say “go for it”

Other uses besides Taiwan Swirl?
Hanger Swirls. I have seen some incredible layered hanger swirls.

You can use the dividers to keep a secret feather swirl from spreading, a mantra swirl, an ITP swirl in just one section, a sideways ombre/gradient, confetti designs - lots of uses!

I think the mica blender would be useful if you have a custom blend that you use frequently so you don't have to measure and mix each time. I don't sell, so if my ratios are a little off and the colors aren't consistent it doesn't really matter.

Those are ideas I had not know of for the dividers, and I really look forward to playing with that. I do love mixing my own micas, but I just do it with a popsicle stick, or a powerful little frother I have. May have to see if there,s another use for these mixers in another craft, but I’ll hopefully come up with something.

That's for mixing mica colors to make your own custom colors.
