I haven’t even made the clear yet. I have zero ideas how to use it yet! Hoping I get inspired by others creations. I probably won’t be motivated enough to make the clear until I have some kind of idea on how I want to use it. But, I’m super excited to see what everyone makes!I made the soap challenge clubs melt and pour soap. Its resting peacefully in the fridge. Im not doing the challenge, but i saw a tutorial on a hybrid cp/clear soap, and this challenge popped up. I figured that i would give it a go using their recipe. So i bought the tutorial.
So far it looks pretty clear. Keeping my fingers crossed. Its a lot of steps and ingredients. Will probably never do this again. Its really out of my comfort zone. I guess just not my thing. Hopefully i can make something nice out of it for our challenge. I think these bars will sell for somewhere around $300 per bar. Like my whole bottle of SL, half a bottle of glycerin, a jug of sugar, pinch of lye, half container of 99% isopropyl, and a dollop of distilled water. Oh and a smidge of stearic acid. Thats all, i think lol.
More soapy dishes than i have ever created in my life LOL
Tasha you're giving all those big name youtube soapers a run for their money with this one!!! It's FANTASTIC.O. M. Goodness! Not all according to plan. Had to spackle some air holes due to the accelerating FO. But I’m super happy! I love when my soaps make me giggle! And they do smell great! Autumn Equinox by NS. It DOES accelerate, for me.
Work it is, It takes time to bevel and more time to photograph!Today I worked on beveling some soap. There are several more bars to bevel and photograph; not sure how much of that I'll get done today, though.
This is me, too. I have no idea what I would do with it.I haven’t even made the clear yet. I have zero ideas how to use it yet! Hoping I get inspired by others creations. I probably won’t be motivated enough to make the clear until I have some kind of idea on how I want to use it. But, I’m super excited to see what everyone makes!
This is really impressive. I can’t begin to imagine tackling this with all of the steps and ingredients involved.Cut my homemade clear melt and pour. The bubbles were just ok. I tried to take a pic of my soapy hand and i dropped the block down the garbage disposer. It grinds up easy if thats a good soap property LMBO.
pretty pleased with the clarity, although it does look a little yellow now. I have never even used melt and pour before, so i have nothing to compare it too. I have read that it might clear up a bit after re-melting. If not, mica to the rescue!
Backdrop is my pineapple top for your pleasure. Egads i gotta plant that thing.

My go-to tape for almost everything is one that is used for sealing seams in plastic covered hoop-type greenhouses and applying window film for winter home insulation. Clear Plastic Weatherseal Tape | Frost King® Weatherization Products. I love that it peels off cleanly without leaving a residue, so I use it for all sorts of things. It’s great for cheap lamination over my Master batch labels. I’ve even used it to tape the refrigerator door shut so the dog could no longer pull it open and eat the meat and cheese inside. (Yes, that really happened ) I just bought new squeeze bottles, so I’ll go run a test to see if the FK tape holds the extensions. BTW, appreciate seeing how you used electrical tape to help form a seal between the bottles and tops. Will have to try it since it’s much cheaper than Teflon tape!Any recs for a tape that’ll stay put? This is electrical.
Give it time Mellon Friend. Give it time. Just as your soap properties change, so does your fragrance.I started using/testing my second batch of soap today. I'm happy with the first few uses as far as lather and feel goes. I'm not too happy with the scent though. I used South Pacific Waters from WSP and I think it faded a bit and has sort of a chemical tone to it than it had before. Doesn't leave any scent on my hands either. I probably wouldn't use that scent again.
