How I Made Neon Midnight

This soap made for the September Soap Challenge Club competition required a very thin trace in order to create the very thin lines.  I used a formula that contained just three oils but low degree of saturation so the oil/lye mixture would stay thin for a long time.  This is the SoapCalc formulation page:

The contest requirement was to use five colors which are identified in the formulation page above.  Here is how they looked before pouring into the base soap

:                    

I poured the base color of Midnight Blue and then the lines as seen in this photo:

         

 

I made two swirls, the first was just up and back, very close together:

             

The white appears to have been completely enveloped by the other, stronger color but you can seen just a touch on the corner of one soap.  I then made the final swirl:

And the final product:
