Column Swirl – Round Two

Did you catch the original column swirl that I did? If not, check it out here.

For this one I used brick red oxide and black oxide from Bramble Berry.  I scented it with a combo of peppermint and anise EOs.

Happy Soaping!

    Another beautiful success. I think the skewer gives it additional interest. Funny how the things we think won’t work do and vice versa.

    You’re very talented. Thanks for your generosity in sharing this.

    Amanda, does the block in the middle have to be square? I’m just trying to think of what I have here that would work. I think the next batch of “Vicki’s Daydream” is going to be a pillar swirl!

    When you did the pattern with the skewer did you drag it from the outside of the mold to the center? That is what it looks like to me but I am not sure. I am so excited about this swirl you have done, I so want to try it.

    Gorgeous, I love that red brick oxide you used. I’ve never managed to get a nice red like that.

    in the first shot, you thought the extra lines with the skewer might have runined it. I guess now you see that they enhanced it – cuz you did it again! lovely lovely!
