How to Make Soap Stamps

In March 2011, I took a silicone mold making class at The Nova Studio. The day after the class I found this post on How to Make Soap Stamps on Riverlea Soap's Blog. I will have to give it a try but as I look at this picture, I am wondering if the letters are in the right direction. I was told if you are going to do something with letters to make a word, one should do it backwards so it comes out reading the correct way.

Yep. That's correct. The initial forward facing letters are the mold to make the resin stamp with. the stamp itself comes out backwards and the mold is what your soap will look like after being stamped with it. Hope that helps. :)

BTW, I love how you round up so many tutorials. Keep it up!
