Right here, silly!
One of our members- Topofmurrayhill- makes his own melt and pour base.: http://www.soapmakingforum.com/showthread.php?t=58737

From what I understand, he uses a recipe from the book "How To Make Melt and Pour Base" by Kayla Fioravanti

For what it's worth, here are some videos from Bonnie of Good Earth Spa that show how to make it, although I'm not sure how much they differ from the recipe in the book that Topofmurrayhill uses:

I've made a batch using soap oils, lye, propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin and sugar water. Its not difficult, but I have found that I am certainly no great artist with M&P

Something you can do to find a M&P base in your country (depending on which country you live in..) is visit goat farms because a lot of them make a goat milk soap base as well. These are not transparent however, but this allows you to dabble with really great colors. Good luck!
