I made this tutorial because I love to swirl soap. This is a great way to make swirls in melt & pour soap.

Start by making a soap curl.


Then you make your base on let kool.


Then you pour your base into a round mold, I used a pringles can. Spray your soap curl with rubbing alcohol, so it can stick to the base, and just insert it in. Let it completely kool, then you can tear away the can, and you will have a perfect round loaf of soap.

Random question...  could you use melt and pour to make the swirl and then fill the mold with CP?  I don't know if it would be too hot and would mess it up or not...

That's actually a really good question. I'm working on something similar but not with swirling. I think the amount of Melt & Pour soap would have to thick in order for it not to melt in the cold process soap. I will keep you tuned into what happens.

To make the swirl do you just pour it out flat and bend it while it's still warm? I haven't worked with mp in a long time lol! Grin
