Like Weaver suggested, why don't you concentrate on making molds? You could have your standard sets and if you're a good enough artist, you can branch out from that. Obviously, you enjoy being creative and having an outlet and mold making would be a better way of being unique. You'd still have to take some time to learn how much punishment your molds can take or if you could possibly use those molds for certain culinary crafts *HINT*@susie and @weaversport
I hear you both, you give valid critiques of me. Yes I agree I failed to ‘read the room’ properly.
For sure if I could do it over again, I’d find a different way to ask my question.
I hear you, thanks!
Thanks for the tips about painting it with mica, that idea hadn’t occurred to me to try. And thanks for your other kinds words, I appreciate it.
I like making soap as far as it is a challenge to me, as I’ve never made soap until recently, everything is new to me. Figuring things out is fun to me. I’ve learned to use 3d software, I’ve learned to use a 3d printer, I’ve learned about MP soap, I’ve learned about using a paper cutting machine, I’ve learned to design packaging on the computer and then turn it into real paper box. I’ve learned how to door knock on stores. I’ve learned what stores like and don’t like. There is a ton of stuff that I know now that I didn’t know a few months ago.
As far as CP soap goes. There are tons of beautiful soaps out there. I’ve seen them on pinterest and youtube and in stores. I don’t think I can add value there, because I have no obvious ideas on how to make CP soaps that isn’t the same as everyone else. MP soap is very kind to custom molds, that is where I think I can add value by being unique.
My apologies to those of you who felt I was rude in how I came on this forum and asked my question. Not my intent to make you feel uncomfortable. People who know me in real life say I don’t filter what I say before I open my mouth.
