Once Upon a Dream Cold Process Tutorial
Childhood stories always starts with Once upon time. But here is a recipe from The Soap Queen that brings the princess theme of true love, happiness, magic and morality into a bar of soap. The name of this cold process soap project is called Once Upon a Dream. This project features the hanger swirl technique, which is best suited for a more advanced cold process soap maker, that involves layers and swirling them with a bent hanger or wire tool.
I have a B.A. in Mass Communication and took my first melt and pour soapmaking class in 2002. Since then I got hooked making my own bath and products. I have taken various courses in Soapmaking (Melt & Pour, Cold Process, Hot Process), lotion making (lotions, creams, lotion sticks), bath products (bath salts, body scrubs), body products (lip balm, body butters, body balms, whipped butters) and more. Most of all of my classes were taught by Lori Nova of The Nova Studio in Point Richmond, Ca. I have taught courses since 2004 at various locations. I have worked as an Event Coordinator at Michaels Redwood City.
