Soapy Mess-Up Quick Guide
If you are a cold process soap maker (or if you never made soap before), this process is both an art from and a science (chemistry especially). It requires precise measuring of ingredients to get the saponification process to go just right. Time and temperature are just as time important so that the chemical reaction of the lye, water and oils reaction properly. Since you need to be precise in making cold process soap, mistakes sometimes happens to the best of us.. But would you believe that there are methods to prevent and fix your mistakes. Would you like to learn how? In a recent post from The Soap Queen called Soapy Mess-Up Quick Guide can help you on various mistakes.
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.
