One Pot Wonder Soap Challenge

The June 2020 Soap Challenge offered by Amy Warden of Great Cakes Soapworks is called "One Pot Wonder".
Here are the description and rules of the 2 different categories we can choose from to make the soap:

REGULAR CATEGORY: Your entire soap must be made with cold process or cold process/oven process to create a “one pot wonder” design only in a log mold by pouring no more than 4 layers of colors in your pot, then pouring back and forth along the long side of the mold to create the design in one pouring session. Tops can be decorated however you wish, but no added embellishments after the soap is cut 

ADVANCED CATEGORY: Your entire soap must be made with cold process or cold process/oven process to create a “one pot wonder” design only in a log mold by pouring 5 or more layers of colors in your pot, then pouring back and forth along the long side of the mold to create the design in one pouring session. The soap must be colored and fragranced with 100% natural ingredients (not nature identical or created in a lab – listed in the tips & tricks section below). Tops can be decorated however you wish, but no added embellishments after the soap is cut.
Amy's inspiration for this month's challenge came from a video that Tania of Soapish posted on her Instagram account. Thank you Tania for sharing this technique for the challenge this month, and also Amy for teaching us.
The soap I am entering for the challenge will be for the regular category. The colors for my entry were neon colors from Mad Micas. Pink was "Tickled Pink", orange was "Cheesy Poof", purple was "Grape Ape", and for the white I used Titanium Dioxide. The fragrance I used was Plum Tea from Bramble Berry, I love this fragrance and it was nice to work with, it has been discontinued and I am hoping one day they will bring it back in stock.
The second soap I made was a Red, White, and Blue soap. I fragranced it with Spiced Apple Cider from Bramble Berry also. And the red was from Nurture Soap "Really Red, White was "Titanium Dioxide" and the Blue was "Union City Blue" from Soap Making Colorants. This soap got thick really quick so I was not able to get the smooth wispy design, and I added the soap stars I made using a column mold. I really love this soap design and plan on using this technique to make it a regular item in my line of soaps.
The third soap I made I used these colors from Nurture Soaps: Amaranth Pink and Purple Vibrance, from Mad Oils Peacock, and from Wholesale Supply Plus Sparkle Light Gold mica. The fragrance is Ginger Ale from Bramble Berry.
I hope you enjoy the pictures of my entry soap and the other 2 other batches I made.
