I made this the other night when I was bored. I am very impressed with how it turned out.

What sort of soap did you use? Is it melt and pour?

It turned out beautifully!  And I agree with RavingRosemary - it totally looks like a view of Earth from space!

Thanks everyone. I used Cold Process soap, make sure you really follow KB Shimmer's tutorial. Have your oils and lye at room temperature, it makes your soap trace very liquidy, and that's what really makes the swirling look good. I did add Dolce & Cabana for Men, because that's my favorite scent for my husband.

Don't be in a rush when swirling, patience is key. I think after trying her technique compared to others, KB Shimmer technique is the best by far.

It DOES look like the earth! Thats awesome.

I agree too about the KBShimmer swirling tutorial... Ive only done 2 swirl soaps so far but they both turned out really awesome with her advice!
