I’ll get it eventually but here’s my second attempt at the one pot wonder. The first two colors I put in the pot always seem to set up too much during my pour…maybe I’m not fast enough. This is scented in WSPs Flowerbomb dupe. It’s not bad, but I’m not a fan of floral. These are all mad micas colors.

I absolutely love the 'swishy' look of the colours

To me they look like you used a dark green colorant that morphed in areas that came in contact with the white soap. Maybe that’s why the dark green is still present in the thickest areas of dark green swirl???

2nd theory is that the dark green contains a colorant that migrates, much like red can do.

I wonder if anyone ever had (ab)used ZCS to create a “vanilla ghost swirl”? Light batter, scented with vanilla essence/FO, then split, and ZCS added to only one of the two parts.
I think vanilla is aggressive and the color would work its way into the ZCS part but I would love for someone to do this!

Well done grasshopper

I wrapped my soap for my granddaughter’s christening tomorrow - thanks to all who gave suggestions. I made these with silicone impression mats - colored with rose kaolin and scented with Rose Garden from new directions. I ended up not making any unscented bars, if people don’t like them they can just pass them by! My wholesale customer saw these in my studio and loved them so they have another outlet now.

Tried my hand at the one pot wonder last night (first time). Scented in rosemary mint. Cut today. Not the result I was hoping for. Two of my greens look the same. My white set up too fast as well. Plan on trying again tonight.
Very pretty' love the color too.

Finally a one pot wonder that looks good (well, until it discoloration at least! Whoops! Just practicing technique anyway) I switched up the recipe for this one and it worked better.
