Creating Soap Swirls with Mica & Glycerin

Here is a really cool cold process technique I saw from a blog that I follow.  It is from a guest tutorial on Creating Soap Swirls with Mica and Glycerin which appears on the blog The Soap Bar.   According to Michelle Rhodes of Mossy Creek Soap, creating swirled soap tops are not all that hard but it does require practice. With this method you need to keep in mind the consistency of your newly poured soap. Some techniques require your soap base to be thick enough to be able to fluff up the soap base and remain stiff but not too stiff you cannot manipulate it.  This soap on the other hand requires it to be softer so the swirls you are creating will flow.  So if you find this technique cool then check out this tutorial.
