I used to get those little indentations, too, Jayne. So annoying, right? Have you turned the nozzle slightly to one side or the other to adjust the spray? Some spray bottles are more responsive than others, of course. I thought of using a mister from the garden section in stores, but all they had were made of copper, so that was out. I did go to a much smaller bottle that seems to be working very well because the adjustable nozzle is pretty good. I have seen some soapers on youtube use really tiny bottles for misting the alcohol onto their soap batter. Tiny like they only hold less than 3 ounces (airplane carry-on size) and those probably have a very fine spray. I am happy with my slightly larger bottles that hold at least 4 or 5 ounces (maybe more). I got them at Dollar General I believe..
I need to work something out with my alcohol. I've got it in a spray bottle but the drops must be too big because they indent the soap a little. I couldn't find something that sprays finer when I was at the shops the other day though. I also need to buy a mini mixer for my colours.
Other than that I read a few threads on here. That is about all I've had time for.
Great colour. Is it only coloured with used coffee grounds? Does the colour run?Gave away a box of Chef's Soap made with coffee, goatmilk & honey to the lovely baristas in our local coffee shop who supply me with used coffee grounds - all organic and ethically grown.]
Thank you.Great colour. Is it only coloured with used coffee grounds? Does the colour run?
I tried to get it that colour but the colour runs.
Good luck with the procedures - hope all goes well and everything turns out ok.We were gone for several hours yesterday, eating out, shopping. Never did go to the movies. Hubby wants to see as many of the movies that got top Academy nominations. So far, I've seen 4 of them I think, but he has only seen 3. We need to get out to more movies on his days off! Anyway, I searched for some things to use with soap dough and just picked up a couple things, a small rolling pin & some plastic shape cutters. I have so much stuff in my Amazon cart, I wanted to see if I could find any of it locally. Looks like it's a real hit & miss proposition. But then I did not go to places like Hobby Lobby or Michael's where I would probably have a better selection. Our 5 store visits were basically for groceries, so hobby stores were not on the agenda.
Today soap dough play is on the agenda, as well as making some more in a couple of blue hues. But I have been interrupted by having to deal with medical appointments and preparations for them. Next week I have an endoscopy & colonoscopy scheduled and because of the day-before the procedure prep involved had to re-schedule my appt with my orthopedist (hip issues that did not show up in x-ray.) I wonder if I'll be up to going to the movies after an endo & colonoscopy next Tuesday? I'm thinking maybe not, but maybe the next day.
I need to do those too. The teenagers cleaned me out when they all had head colds (they were menthol/eucalyptus/mint).OMG those bubble scoops look awesome ! I think I need to make those.
I need to look up how to make shower steamers or Shower smellies
My niece gave me a Lush shower jelly a couple of years ago (grape fragrance) which was fun to play with but a bit difficult to use. I came across this recipe but haven't tried it yet. Thought you might be interestedI need to do those too. The teenagers cleaned me out when they all had head colds (they were menthol/eucalyptus/mint).
I am down to about 8 bubble scoops left for my show tomorrow... I have to remember to wait until after the show to post them on FB, otherwise I don't take as many as I would like! A good problem to have.
I'm googling soap jelly. My daughter discovered it at the Lush store when were at MOA for new year's eve. This is working well for my squirrel brain can't focus on a single soap project at one time brain... I need to reign it all in and get one.thing.done. at a time. Sigh. Well tonight will be the husband's salt bars for sure, packing for the show, and if I can squeeze it in: laying out a sketch for the February challenge.
