Rainbow Soap (lots of pics)

My new Hawaii Soap which was temporarily named Kailua Bay has been a hit lately. Now onto the good stuff.

I've been dying to try this technique and finally got around to it.

Part 1 of the process
 My sister was smart enough to grab the camera to catch the action as it was happening. We were both beside ourselves with excitement.
Part 2 of the pour - We were both taking turns with the pour hoping the trace wouldn't get too thick.

Part 3 - looking groovy baby - At this point I wondered if the colours were too vibrant.

In the mold - I made an 18 bar batch

Cut Bars 2 Every bar is unique in design

Cut Bars 3 The right one reminds me of a peacock
All the soaps at a glance
After much trepidation I decided to use White Tea and Ginger fragrance and it worked out beautifully.  I'm not sure if I will call this one Rainbow soap but that is it's temporary name.  I can't wait to make another soap like this.

Oh my those are soooo nice, I wish my molds would work with this kind of swirl but they are long and high so probably not! I love the colours, I almost want to make a mold especially so I could try, was it fun?

Thanks everyone, yes it was fun but I was a bit worried about thick trace. I have lots of other ideas next time I try it.

Great column swirl. I love how the colors turned out. A little more muted than the raw soap but they go great together, and are fitting for WT&G. Beautiful!

So cool. So gorgeous. Thanks a ton for sharing. I wonder what they would be like with more tone on tone colors ? You know like maybe if I was in a reflective mood or just lazy ?

Thanks for the lovely comments to those who recently posted. I'm sure any colours would work. Just experiment and see what happens.

Woo hoo!! If I had a slab mold, I'd definitely be trying that method too! Looks like you two nailed it - great job!!
