    Non-Soap Shampoo Bar

    WSP Sun & Sand

    I make a lot of candles with this fragrance, and a co worker asked if I could make soap with it. Has anyone used it in CP? Just wondering how it behaves and if it retains the awesome smell it has in candles.

    Scales for small amounts

    My scale works great for heavier items, but I have had a hard time with making small amounts of lip balm, etc. I calibrate it with a a 5 gram nickel and it is perfect everytime, but when measuring out things that are under 5 grams, it does not work very well. What type of scale works best for...

    Soap looks Frosted

    I made a soap batch yesterday that was my standard recipe, but a new FO for me. WSP's Beach House. Everything seemed okay, I separated some off for two colors, and when I poured the White it looked not as creamy/smooth as it usually does. I have now unmolded it and it has like a...

    Soapmaker 3 Pro, a little overwhelming

    Downloaded it yesterday and I am still reading all the help topics. It's a little overwhelming. All the decisions, grams or ounces, finding specific gravity, figuring out percent of water loss, etc. :problem: I'm hoping that it will get a little easier as I get going.
