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!).
