Additional swirling in the mold

I wasn't satisfied to just leave it alone, though, so I did some additional swirling.

Using my narrow rubber spatula, I did some zig-zag swirling through the circular column pattern. You can also stick the tip of the spatula into the center of the circle and drag outwards...or do the opposite, and drag color from the outside of the circular pattern inwards.

Don't swirl too much, though, you can start to muddy your colors together.
