What Method of Soapmaking is Right for You?, Kenna of Modern Soapmaking wrote about the different types of soap making. My first soap making class was on melt and pour and I have been doing that process for years. It is very simple and an easy one to start with. But over the years I took some classes on Cold Process (CP) and Hot Process (HP) soap making through The Nova Studio. I have not have the opportunity to make soap by these process yet, but I am getting the itch to give it a try really soon since I purchased a really nice soap mold from The Nova Studio garage sale last month.
