Sea Sponge Cold Process Soap Tutorial

Sea Sponges add so much texture and lather to soap.  When it becomes wet, the sponges become quite soap and acts similiar to a wash cloth. The Soap Queen created this intermediate cold process project called Sea Sponge.  In addition to the sea sponges also includes the swirl technique.  I really like the swirl technique.  The first time I tried it, I only did two colors and it turned out really well.
