|Right after swirling|
I managed to keep the soap fairly even amazingly enough. After I swirled the soap itself, I mixed a little bit of cappuccino mica with a little glycerin. I dripped the mixture around the top of the soap. I used the very tip of a skewer to swirl it around drawing circles on the top of the fresh soap.
I have found that I don't need to insulate my wooden mold. It almost always gels without any help. The few times I have added heat it has backfired on me and my soap has ended up overheating.

I left the soap overnight to harden and saponify. After pulling the soap out of the mold in the morning, I cut the loaf in half lengthwise. I realized after I poured this soap that I should have used 2 dividers in order for the bars to have the swirl in each bar. I am really pleased with this soap in spite of the swirl division.
