Today I tried a swirl (and made sure I put ALL the ingredients in!). Here's the inital pic of the soap - I wish now I'd only used one color, as the second got more blue grey than I intended. It also accelerated quickly, so I'm not sure how well it swirled, but tomorrow, we will see!

(sorry for the poor quality!)

And the result!

I believe it has glycerin rivers (only in the middle three pieces though... not sure why), but it isn't too bad considering how fast it set up and it was a first attempt. I'll take it!

The center probably heated more than the rest of the loaf.
Still a very nice swirl.

Very nicely done! Using full liquid can make the chance of that happening. It's only cosmetic. Sometimes I like how they turn out.

Nice looking soap. Those do look like glycerin rivers, but still pretty.
