For a Column Swirl you need a slab mold. I don't own a slab mold yet. So I found a sturdy box and lined it with plastic. I put a small jar in the center of the box
I made my soap as normal and scented it with a blend of essential oils and fragrance oils. Then I divided the soaps into 4 parts. I colored three of the parts in bright colors, and left the fourth portion white.
I alternated pouring the colors straight onto the center of the jar. The colors stayed in rings! And as the next color was poured, the colors were pushed out in nice clean circles. It was somehow very satisfying to pour colors on the jar, have the raw soap go smoothly down the side of the jar, and make nice neat even(ish) circles.
I could look at this design in this box all day.
The final product was beautiful. I love how the star-burst design goes all the way through the soap. The fragrance is a blend of White Tea fragrance oil, with essential oils of Bergamont, Lavender Mandarin, Thyme, Orange and Ylang Ylang. It's like a watching a sunrise from your garden . These are available right now at Sego Lily Soap. These bars are big and beautiful! Even bigger than my normal bars, which are already big to begin with. I think I love these soaps!
