1  Re: CP soap question in Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions by MartinsvilleEmporium on: November 09, 2006 09:14:50 AM
Trace is when the oils and lye are fully emulsified. It looks like this:

That's a little on the thick side, but it gives you a good idea.  Once you get it to trace, you don't have to worry about it separating after you get it into the mold.  You know it's at that stage when you pick up whatever you're using to stir with and a line of the mixture drizzled across the soap will be visible. It's hard to describe in words, so if that explanation isn't good enough, let me know and I'll try again!  Grin

2  The Tale of Super Mario and His New Overalls in Halloween Costumes by MartinsvilleEmporium on: October 31, 2006 06:32:58 PM
Once upon a time, in the Kingdom of Mushrooms, lived a plumber named Mario, who was very devoted to the Purple Princess (Princess Peach was on vacation in Barbados with Luigi, apparently).

Mario, however, had a problem. His uniform was in tatters from all that crawling around in pipes and such, and he needed new overalls. So he called up the Royal Seamstress and requested new duds. "I need new overalls for the upcoming Halloween festivities, please," he told her. "I will be escorting the Purple Princess for trick-or-treating on the 31st of October."

"Will fleece be a good fabric?" the Royal Seamstress asked, thinking that fleece overalls would also work well as snowpants. "What color do you require?"

"I wear red overalls," replied the kindly plumber.

So the red fleece was purchased, and plans were underway to make the new overalls.  But the evil Bowser, wanting to ruin Mario's fun, caused a horrible freak snowstorm to fall upon the Mushroom Kingdom (which, for the purposes of our story, is in Western New York) and the kingdom was plagued with power outages and flooding. The Royal Seamstress was not daunted, because she already had the Red Fleece with which to make the new overalls (not to mention that she was too busy mucking the raw sewage out of the royal basement.  Tongue)

And so the time came when the overalls were to be made, so the Royal Seamstress asks Mario to bring her a picture of the overalls, so that she can copy them.  But when Mario brought the picture of the overalls, both he and the Royal Seamstress were totally aghast to realize....that his overalls are supposed to be BLUE.

"Don't cry, Mario," said the Royal Seamstress to the bereft Mario, who was sobbing loudly and really very upset. "For I am a crafty seamstress, and there just has to be some blue fabric in the 10,000 bins of fabric I've been hoarding since before you were born."

And lo, the blue fabric was found, and the cutting and sewing commenced.  And since time was short, there was much use of Spray Adhesive, fleece scraps, and magic marker, until Mario's new outfit was complete:

So Mario defeated Bowser, escorted the Purple Princess (who, luckily for the Royal Seamstress - who had glued her fingers together with the Spray Adhesive - was happy with a dress that was purchased off the rack at Joanns) in the annual trick-or-treating , and the day was saved!

(Until, of course, they ate too much candy and were too busy bouncing off the walls to go to bed..... Roll Eyes )
