Has anyone made tie dye soap like the one in the link here? https://gospaces.com/blog/how-to-make-soap-recipes-infographic It would be my first time making soap and the guide does a great job explaining how to do this, but was wondering if anyone had some tips to make this. I've done some reasearch and took some notes, but I like to be prepared before jumping into a new hobby.

That looks fun! I haven't done that particular one before, but melt and pour is pretty forgiving so might be a good one to jump in with. I would recommend seeking out a good melt and pour base from a soap supplier rather than buying whatever they have at your local big box craft store, those tend to be expensive and not a very good quality soap if you want to actually use the soap.

You will want to make sure you are using a liquid colorant meant for melt and pour soaps, powdered types that you mix with water or oil for cold process soaps are sometimes tricky to use in melt and pour. Also, I don't think this tutorial says, but be sure to spray with rubbing alcohol after you have stirred the soap in the mold to get rid of the bubbles that stirring may cause. Have fun and we look forward to seeing what you make!

Thank you so much for the tips. I will look into a good melt and pour base for it. I'm glad you said something, I would have probably bought it at my local craft store. Do you have any brand suggestions?
Thanks again. Smiley

Any base sold by one of the bigger companies (Brambleberry, Wholesale Supplies Plus, Majestic Mountain Sage, etc) would be good. We have a supplier list you can check out too (link below), maybe see what's closest to you to save on shipping, you may even be lucky enough to have a local supplier with a storefront you can visit or at least order for will call to save on shipping!
