Well, I finally figured out how "Miss Impatience" (that's me) can swirl the tops of her soaps: Pour it in the mold, go clean up my messy soap room, and by then I can come back and swirl and twirl to my hearts content!
I'm hoping that the brownish color (yellow dock) will turn more pink as it cures...we'll see. I must say that this whole swirling, coloring adventure is big fun for me. It makes un-molding and cutting very exciting!
Happy skin, all!
