Soapers and soaprettes, I am proud to present... SWIRLS!
This was done using the swirl-in-the-pot method, with the proper combination of oxide, cursing, and making vain promises to the soaping gods. It smells like woodsmoke, vanilla, cherry, pine and cinnamon. I keep thinking of it as "the goth soap."
Prelude to the goth soap:
I think the FO I was using accelerated trace a smidge. But it came out looking like a stormy sky, which I kind of love (& fittingly, was done with WSP's Stormy Night dupe, which smells like rain-drenched heather & hyacinth--a light, clean floral).
Aaaaand maybe not exactly a swirl:
Scented with an ocean FO and, after a friend complained that it wasn't oceanic enough, a healthy dose of kelp. So now I've got the verisimilitude down... only trick is finding someone who wants to bathe in seaweed. ;P (BF says it smells like a sushi restaurant. Some people really love the ocean, right?)
DONE RAMBLING NOW OKAY.
