Hanger swirl

Below are two of my soaps, both made with the hanger swirl technique. The first one is colored with activated charcoal and 2 golden micas. I'm pretty pleased how it turned out:

The 2nd soap is scented with yuzu fragrance oil. I made an attempt to draw a branch with leaves, but I also see a bird sitting on bamboo in the left soap. :)) Do you see it?

  2. Yes, I can see the bird! It is lovely. The black soap is striking... Is the foam white or black when using charcoal?

    1. Thank you very much, Madame Propre!
      The lather is white, as you can see in the other soap I made with charcoal here (the last picture):

  3. Hi your soaps are so pretty! Do you use melt and pour? Or is it via hot/cold process?

  5. These are incredible!! (and the bird is amazing) I've been trying hanger swirls but I think I'm leaving it to trace too much, do you find it works best at thin trace?
