I definitely agree with the both of you having a scale is a must. This is how I make all of my soaps, but I know for many people taking on new hobbies get very costly. I'm sure she would have started out with a scale any way seeing that most of soap recipes require it. Sorry I didn't mean any harm, I was trying to save you some money, and encourage you to make soap. Making soap for me is very a joy, I always look forward to it, and it's therapeutic. I'm sure she will enjoy it too.

Thanks, I'm always trying to make new designs.

Thanks, I get my molds from Mold Market. They have good molds, and they are pretty cheap. I love that they are clear so I can see what I'm doing. I'm a very visual person.

It's not too expensive, and it lasts forever. But the main thing that you should have is a good reference book. You can also checkout this link http://www.millersoap.com/soapsfluid.html. They have a recipe you can follow without needing a weighing scale. Helps cut down on costs, in the beginning. After you decide that soap making is for you, you can then invest in good equipment. I know when I actually went out and brought really nice equipment my soaps turned a million times better.  Hope this helps.

This next soapsicle was inspired by From Nature With Love. She made a tutorial on craftster that gave me much needed inspiration for a new soapsicle. This was just my first go at it, after a couple of times I got the right amount of each color in to make it look more proportioned. The top is vanilla, then strawberry, then chocolate. I wrapped and ribboned them up like my watermelon soapsicles, and they look really great. Sorry I don't have any new photos, I already shipped them out before I could snap a shot of the final product.

This is me making chocolate mint soap, which made me crave mint chocolate chip ice cream.

This is the first layer setting.

This is the second layer.

The last layer, yeahhhhhhhhhhhhh.

I finally finished and went to bed. When I woke up the next day I started cutting the loaf of soap, and wrapped it up.

That's me making the soap. I made lemongrass essential oil soap with black sesame seeds. I really like the contrast in this bar of soap.

This is a really crappy photo, I need to work on my picture taking skills, and use the Nikon D 80 camera.

This is with the Nikon D 80 Camera, the photo is much clearer, and I still need to work on my photo taking skills. Ha ha ha. The texture, and color of the soap is really beautiful.

Hey what a great idea. Now why didn't I think of that. Honeycomb candles will be my next project. Sometimes the most simplest things stare you right in the face, and you can't see it until someone points it out.  Thanks
