I have always wanted to try soap making, but when you pick up a book at the library, it all sounds so complicated!  Your tutorial was great!  I think it made me brave enough to go to it!  Soap on, you rock!  Smiley

ok I took some better pictures of the 'stages' of cooking the soap.

Here's what it looked like at the very first check I did:



Here's when you have to remember not to panic. The soap will look like it's starting to get solid and will get REALLY hard to stir. Looks a lot like a REALLY stiff meringue. Just stir as best you can and stick it back in the oven.



Here is the begining of gel. You can see the 'translucent' soap up against the soap that hasn't gelled yet:


And here it is 'cooked'. It looks thick, but it's really light and airy and easy to stir at this point. It also will pass the zap test.

I know this is laaate, but I am about to try this whole new adventure in soap making.  Your tute has been the one I feel most confident in embarking on.  It was simply fabulous.  AND I think I just might have to print out your tute for the mold and leave it in inconspicuous places around the house---in hopes of obtaining one.  Wink

The only thing I'm left in the dark about is the recipe, I know it's unorthodox to ask for yours, so I won't.  but if you could point me in the direction of one that I could use in the instance of practicing your method...I'd be indebted to you.  I've found numerous web pages dedicated to recipes, processes, tools, methods, and the whole 110 yards, but as stupid as it sounds I'm not sure which I can use for this.  Plus I'm still a little leary about the dangers of lye.

BTW your new photos are super.  Thanks!

Glad you like the tutorial!

Here's a link for everything you need to know about recipes- from basic ones to how to create your own, answers to common problems, etc (sort of the online 'bible' of soapmaking):

This is such a great idea, my sister and I have decided that we were going to start making soap for xmas presents and had done one batch of soap before. Then, I stumbled upon this post and we tried it today..it worked awesome and we are going to do all of our soap this way now! Our soap took about 25min's to make,and didn't get distinctively "mash potatoie" but it still turned out well and is warming under the wool blanket!
Thanks so much
