I make just basic soaps using melt and pour, adding in fragrance, and soap liquid colouring.

For some reason, a lot of the soaps form what looks like little bubbles of consensation, anywhere between the day after they are made up to a week later.  It does not happen with the ones I don't colour (but still add fragrance to).  The little bubbles stay, and they appear to be a darker colour than the soap.

Any ideas?  Thanks!

I didn't make it, but I came across one which the maker called cinammonn bun.  It smells divine!

I've been using melt and pour, and putting in into molds/moulds (however you want to spell it!)  But the "top" (which is the bootom when you press them out of the mold) has bubbles, and a rough edge.  What can I do to fix this?

I haven't personally ordered any, but there are a few people on Etsy that do them in small batches, very inexpensively.  Do a serach for "fabric labels supplies" and you should find a few.

I am just wondering whether it is safe to pour candles into wine glasses.  I have some I have etched, and a customer would like it turned into a candle.  I use the soy wax.  Will the heat of pouring, or the heat of burning the candle cause the glass to break?  They are pretty thick glass.

Thankyou for any ideas!

I am wanting to make some hair clips with oval shaped wood that can be gently curved to follow the curve of the hair clip it would be attached to.  Any suggestions of what sort of wood I should use to be able to create the gentle curve, AND for the curve to remain?
