Hi rockysyenergy

You can try to combine the below tutorial/s in the following thread with

"Filters > Blurs > Gaussian Blur" to get a smooth effect.

See tutorials here:

Alternatively, if you prefer a script to do the work...
Fence-Post's Satin Script maybe what you are after.
Download the script to your 'scripts' folder, Refresh your Scripts or restart Gimp.
You will find the satin script entry under the Filters->Render->Satin.
When run with the following settings
   
it will produce a result like this.
   
If you don't like the results, CTRL-Z, followed by CTRL-SHIFT-F to redisplay the filter's dialog.
Then change the settings, run again, repeat until you are satisfied. Wink

Yet another option, seeing fb results(gave me an idea.)

Try starting a new image / project with

"Filters > Distorts > Mosaic"
Using near these settings
   
.
Then follow up with
"Filters > Distorts > iWarp"
Change color or "Filters > Blurs > Gaussian blur..." if needed
