The Lazy Soap Maker’s In-The-Pot Soap Swirl

I would call myself a beginner in the realm of cold process soap making. But I have to be honest, my first attempt at making cold process soap was doing an In The Post Soap Swirl. Pretty daring for a first try but I did keep it simple...I used only one color pigment and the base color of the oils which came out a cream white. For the first try it came out really nice. To this date I have not tried more colors. Do not feel ready for that, but if you are then I would recommend Lovin' Soap's The Lazy Soap Maker's In The Pot Soap Swirl. I found the technique interesting since I normally took out alittle soap batter and combined with the color sand swirled it in. She does it a completely different way? For those experienced,,,,would you do it this way?
I have a B.A. in Mass Communication and took my first melt and pour soapmaking class in 2002. Since then I got hooked making my own bath and products. I have taken various courses in Soapmaking (Melt & Pour, Cold Process, Hot Process), lotion making (lotions, creams, lotion sticks), bath products (bath salts, body scrubs), body products (lip balm, body butters, body balms, whipped butters) and more. Most of all of my classes were taught by Lori Nova of The Nova Studio in Point Richmond, Ca. I have taught courses since 2004 at various locations. I have worked as an Event Coordinator at Michaels Redwood City.
