Three Color Mantra Swirl Soap

The mantra swirl is probably one of the oldest coloring techniques I know of, and is a classic soapmaking design (in my opinion!) It was one of the first designs I learned, and is one of my favorites to break out when I get bored.

The way I was taught to do a mantra swirl soap consisted of splitting the batch in two colors, and using a chopstick or skewer to swirl the mantra design into the top of the soap. This would swirl the internal divide of soap a little bit, but not very much. You could cut the loaf of soap horizontally instead of vertically to show off the mantra on the large face of each bar, but I'm not one for special treatment during cutting or curing!

Finding a way to bring the mantra swirl throughout the soap was the goal. When I learned the hanger swirl, and combined the two, I checked it off my list of "Must Figure Out!"

Now, I'm sharing how I achieve this look and captured it all on video, just for you! Check out the modified mantra swirl soap making:
