Hi,

Here are my latest soaps, in my newest butterfly mould!


bar soap made of the same batch cut with my awesome new cutter

the soap is cold process and is lemon flavoured with carrot puree for colouring.  What do you think?

Very Pretty!

I'm cutting challenged so I went with divider molds years ago.

l_coburn - it's not hard - you just need to have respect of the lye and weigh your ingredients.

kathy miller (millersoap) has a wonderful site that will answer a lot of your questions.

I have a soapmaking page (with pictures) that may give you a quicker look at what is involved.

I have a question about molds.  I've got a really cute cookie mold that I'd like to use for chocolate...if I used it for soap, would that mean I wouldn't be able to made food items in it?

ooooooooh i got featured on the blog, thanks sweets4ever!!

jagger - you can use the same moulds for food and soap if you like.  I often do.  but you need to be careful that you aren't going to end up with uncured soap stuck to the mould.  i usually wash them thoroughly in hot water, put them aside, rewash them as per normal once they've dried thoroughly.  that way they get cleaned twice and the chances of them having soap on them is slim to none!  hope that helps. x

Those are really pretty! So far, I've only been brave enough to do melt and pours. I can't wait to try cold process. Hope I can make mine as pretty as yours! And congrats on getting featured!
