How to Make the Perfect Peacock Swirl in Cold Process Soap
In this episode of Soap Queen TV, I redeem myself. In case you don’t remember, I posted a video on how to do the Peacock Swirl in cold process soap and although the soap turned out nice, it wasn’t a great example of the peacock swirl design. So I designed a set of tools to help me do it perfectly every time. While I’ve used the swirl tools in previous tutorials (peacock challenge, frog foot swirl, & butterfly swirl), you get to see them in action in this video!
Please Note: The in-video links only work on the YouTube website (darn!).

SAFETY FIRST: Suit up for safe handling practices! That means goggles, gloves and long sleeves. Make sure kids, pets, and other distractions and tripping hazards are out of the house or don’t have access to your soaping space. Always soap in a well-ventilated area.
