Column Swirl

So, this video of a painting by Holton Rower has been going around and made it into the soap community via Soapylove's Facebook page where Debbie noted it might be inspiring for Cold Process soap makers. Boy was she right! Amanda Griffin of Lovin' Soap posted pictures of her attempt to do this with soap - as far as I know the first person to try it out with soap as the medium. Since then I have done it as well as Holly Port from Lotion Bar Café!

Click here to see the original video reposted by Non ci posso credere. The video is beautifully done! 

Here are my results:

 just poured soap. The colors are made using natural cosmetic clays. I used an essential oil blend for the scent so this one is all natural!
 Gelled Soap 18 hours later
Clay colors
Column cross sections. These are really cool - I think they look like sediment lines.

Cut Bars. There is a lot of variety and the bars from the edges of the mold didn't get much color. These are mostly from the middle of the mold.
