Oil & Glycerin Swirl Challenge

This is my second try at the Oil & Glycerin Swirl Challenge...my first try did not go as planned, so here we go again.


This time I am using Bramble Berry's Sunny Herb Garden fragrance oil and I am NOT using glycerin. I put my mica and titanium oxide in oil this time...hoping for better success.
 

These are my swirl and base colors.
 

To try something new again I added aloe vera liquid as part of my water phase...interesting how it changed my lye water to a golden yellow.
 

I poured my base color and laid the yellow on top.
 

Then I sprinkled the mica/oil and titanium oxide/oil mixtures on the top of the 2 colors.
 

Then I swirled everything about.
 

Isn't that sparkle gorgeous!? 

 

The dividers are in.
 

Now we wait and cross our fingers that is batch comes out better than the last trial.
 

TADA!!! I say SUCCESS!!!
 

I love how this came out, I think it is gorgeous in color and swirl. The mica sparkle is so fun (even thought it wont last past the first wash)

What do you think?

When I saw your soap, the first things that it reminded me of were JADE and AMBER. It is spectacular. My husband said that it is much better than mine and I should learn more from you. :| (He's so mean)

Love
