My name is Rae and I am new to soap making (just getting started) and would like to get info on what I should purchase. I would like to make the pretty swirls everyone is doing. If someone could tell me how to make these and what to purchase.

Hello Rae, and welcome to the forum!! I have a few links that might help you out!

First, this link helped me when I was first starting out trying to acquire supplies and such!

http://www.soapcalc.com/itemlist.asp

Id also check out this post, on soap calculators

http://soapmakingforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3515

and this is the best tutorial on swirls ive seen yet...though you may want to try and just get the process of soapmaking down first (maybe a batch or two) before you try that because youve got to work real fast in my experience and you might have better success getting the regular process down before trying something intermediate :)

just my opinion, but then again everyone told me make an unscented batch first and curiosity got the best of me and I wound up putting some in anyway...so if you are going to try it def check this out!

hope that helps! if you have any questions feel free to ask away! Im not expert, so if I cant answer Id be happy to help you find someone who is able to!

Happy soaping and good luck!!

IanT
