    March 2020 Challenge: inlaid soap design

    Ok. I have started experimenting on some bars I had lying around. Melt and pour bars are easily carved ( with a metal kebab skewer) and filled with REALLY liquid melt and pour. You just have to be careful the bar doesn't soften from over-working it. I have also had success carving 100% coconut...

    This is my entry. I went with my second attempt 'By the Fire'. 20200227_182707 by Callie posted Feb 27, 2020 at 6:29 PM This was a 1:1:1 Olive oil, Coconut Oil and Tallow Soap. I used a 1:2 lye to water ratio and added sodium lactate to be sure I wouldn't mangle the loaf unmoulding. The...

    SMF February 2020 challenge - Ione swirl

    I'm not sure I think I like By the Fire best, but my Mum and Hubby like the Peony one. I might see if I can get some better pictures of By the Fire this afternoon.

    Anyone had success with a melt and pour base from scratch?

    I think that if you are going to go down the route of using SLS and the acids rather than oil, you might be better off purchasing ready made melt and pour base. Both of my recipies had a lovely lather, it is just about perfecting the solvents, which I think you have done. I would give it another...

    Anyone had success with a melt and pour base from scratch?

    Hi Mel I have been playing with melt and pour recipies based on a combination of Coconut, Palm and Castor oil or Coconut, Palm and Sunflower Oil with the addition of Glycerin, PG and Sugar Syrup (50% sugar/50% water). My attempts have all ended up sweaty (we get some nasty humidity here on the...

    Is this DOS?

    Thanks for that. I would prefer something washable and reusable. I have fabric I can recycle into some nice liners. I will just have to figure out where on earth I have stashed my overlooker!
