How to Make Soap Gems on Soap Queen TV
I think the first time I heard of soap rocks when I was watching QVC and they were selling them on air. I have also seen them being sold at the East West Bookshop in Mountain View. Andy the company that makes soap rocks does a beautiful job in making them look so realistic. I knew someone who make their own. Plus several years ago, The Nova Studio had a guest teacher who did a one day class. If you have seen these types of melt and pour soaps and would like to attempt to make some, I found this tutorial which appears on Soap Queen TV called How to Make Soap Gems
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.
