Please Note:  Once you have the water/lye solution cooling, in a small container place the sweet almond oil and mica.  Using a kabob stick stir these ingredient together.  Set aside. 

Proceed normally with the cold process soap steps, adding the 84 grams of fragrance oil to the soap batter; and blend to light trace.  Then, in a separate bowl weigh out 220 grams.  To this bowl add 15 grams Lime Green Soap Colorant.  Stick blend to fully incorporate then set aside.

To the other mixing bowl weigh out another 220 grams of the soap batter.  To this add 15 grams Kelly Green Soap Colorant.  Stick blend to incorporate.  Set aside.   

To the remaining batter, continue stick blending until trace.  Then, take the
kelly green soap and spoon it into several areas of the batter.  Repeat with the lime green soap batter.  Then, taking your spatula, swirl directly in the bowl.  Finally, fill your molds.

Next, take the mica oil and draw several thin lines in the top of the soap batter loaves.  Then, taking the kabob stick, gently swirl the mica on the top of the soap.  Do not over swirl.   Allow soap to set for 24 hours before removing it from the mold.  Then, cure.
