    Lol or tiny hands.. Like mine lol

    Seriously though... Have you measured how much total soap you'd need to make? If they're enough for a one lb test batch then all good, yes?

    Or use it if you have a little bit left over from a batch. I often use smaller molds for the left overs; I've even had a couple of customers tell me they like the smaller bars better because they fit better in their hands.

    @Misschief and @Dawni, the little flower patterns inside are adorable, but I'm not sure how they will come out, given the tiny size of the details. Each cavity is roughly 1"W x 1.75"L x .75"D - so maybe they could be guest soaps? The plan is to use left-over batter from another small batch. I'll post a pic when done. :)

    Wife was out of shave soap, so made her 250 grams. Used "Water Orchid" scent (Crafters Choice from WSP). So also had to make a heavy (25% oils and butters) lotion in the same scent.
    First time using BTMS-50. Seems to set up quicker than EWaxNF or BTMS-25.

    They are cute molds and will be handy for over pours. Or if you want to make some sample soaps. If you do not want them pm me. I will take them off your hands.

    I have a small mold that was just like what happened to you. I use it for the left over batter, and call them "Tastes". I sell them for $1.00 each and quite a few people bought them to try out the soap.

    Inventory. I did my year end inventory this morning. I'm glad that's behind me. Now, I just need to input the rest of last year's invoices.

    @Kiti Williams, great idea! I don't sell, but I'm considering whether family members who like my soap as gifts might want some guests soaps. I might like them myself for that purpose. If I don't, for sure I'll contact you, @cmzaha, to rehome them. I hate keeping something around that I don't use, and love giving it to someone who will.

    My daughter is haveing baby number 3 and wants a gender reveal soap. It has to be done right now as its already too late to give it a long proper cure to actually give people to use. But i need to make atleast two batches and the designs i want to do are a little time intensive and to look right will take two days and four batches. I dont want to be that labor intensive however this design is really pretty and i have been dying to try it.

    This is a link to a similar one i want to do.

    The reality of consequence is its own harsh teacher, so if someone wont listen too well they still get the lesson sooner or later......

    I can finally post on this thread after what seems like a long hiatus for me with Christmas and a moved up wedding I have been deprived of my obsession.. But tonight I finally made soap! :dance:

    I used Friday Nights from Natures Fragrance and made a very dark blue with stars and white soap bits on top and of course, lots of White Diamond glitter... and now, I wait...

    Sorry, quoted wrong post lol

    Beautiful!

    I'm making a batch of Lemon Poppyseed soap today. After doing my inventory yesterday, I realized I sold an entire batch of it this past season. Time for more!

    Last night, I made a batch of oatmeal-goat's-milk-honey with 500g of oil in order to try out my leprechaun-sized molds. I unmolded today, and was pleasantly surprised that the details came out pretty well for such a small mold. The picture shows the rest of the batch, as well, which I poured into more typical-sized cavity-mold bars for comparison. small soap 1.jpg small soap 2.jpg
