...but I’m having High School flashbacks...
We're all adults here.
Speak for yourself!
Well, ok,.... age-wise, we're all adults here......... I swear I'll never grow up, though.
Ok @Dean it can’t be worse than this soap ( full disclosure - not my soap - pulled from internet search of random pics).
Thats Gross Soap!
Nope not going. I like my addiction.
@KiwiMoose , with every batch you up your game! I too am glad you're going back to work because there's been no keeping up with you. After my day job, I log on here and there's 10 more of your soaps and not just normal soap but soap with scenery and seawater and sand and now I feel like I need to make soap with today's snow or something. And who here seriously believes her "Oh look at me, I'm just a newbie" act? Maybe now people like @Dean will feel more confident to -- I can't believe I'm typing this -- show his goodies.
But on a serious note, @KiwiMoose , in the last 4 weeks, you have made this space just tremendous fun and a welcome addition to daily stresses and challenges. Thank you. And even at work I'm sneaking surreptitious looks at the forum.
@KiwiMoose has already left the soaping stratosphere.
Sure, not your soap but a friend of yours? Got it.
OMG...I bet u r so right. I totally bought @KiwiMoose ’s newbie act too! I blame that NZ imposter and her beautifully staged pics for giving me paralyzing performance anxiety. I can’t wait share this breakthrough with my therapist...
Well - as fate would have it Dean, I am starting a new role at the University in two weeks: Senior Tutor in Psychology. Perhaps I could help?
I've must find a silicone cake mat "thingy"! I've had no desire to do slab soaps until I saw your beautiful supply-box-mold soap. What did you use on the design for that pretty color?
You can get them in the baking section at Michaels if you have one. Or online at Amazon.
Thank you, shunt2011. I will look on Amazon right now.
I used a bronze mica mixed in with about two tablespoons of the soap batter.
I might look on Amazon too. I couldn't find any AT ALL in NZ, and went to wish.com where they only had two to choose from. It's not quite the pattern I would have liked, but I thought it wold still be OK. I do think it's good to get a proper wooden slab mould though - my cardboard box made things a little uneven.
News flash - nothing on Amazon - just the same two i could get from Wish.com but at twice the price
I considered getting some bronze mica for lip balms. Might go ahead and use it for soap also. Thanks for responding.
Hey @KiwiMoose , I found something for you
PS. Good luck in the new role!
