This was about my fifth attempt of swirling a batch of cold process soap and I think I finally got it right. The colors looked real good as I was laying them down and they didn't fade or change at all like they had done in the past. None of my portions accelerated too fast on me, either, like in all my other attempts. I feel like the soap Gods were with me today! I can't wait until I can unwrap my loaf tomorrow and cut it. Please send your best wishes my way that the slices look great!
