Does anybody ever just keep a bar out of each batch, like have a sort of gallery of your best soaps, and just keep them forever? I expect to hang on to at least one example bar out of my best batches.Soapmaker Man said:That particular batch was made almost 2 years ago now. I used, gave away and sold every bar.
I do!! Well, did, until I had made a zillion batches and has alot of random soaps Now I save a little guest size piece, probably 2 oz. from every batch I make.Lovehound said:Does anybody ever just keep a bar out of each batch, like have a sort of gallery of your best soaps, and just keep them forever?
GENIUS!!!!!! :shock:IrishLass said:The embossing is so easy. All I did was drive over to my local craft/hobby store (Michael's) and buy some decorative rubber stamps (Yes- rubber stamps! They work great if the design on them is not too busy). Then what I do is dip whichever rubber stamp I want to use into a light dusting of either 24 K gold dust, or bronze mica that I have sprinkled on a flat plate beforehand, and then I press the stamp onto my soap just after the soap is cut. Then I lighlty spritz the newly embossed soap with a single spritz of rubbing alcohol and let dry (it helps set the dust or mica onto the soap). It works like a charm and really gives one's soap that extra bit of classy oomph.
