How to Resize Cold Process Soap Recipes
Since I have a four pound slab mold, I have always made a four pound batch of cold process soap plus that is what I learned when I took a class from The Nova Studio. I always wondering about resizing a batch since I do have a three pound log mold that I purchased from Michaels long ago for that I was planning to use for melt and pour soap. Now I want to use it for CP soap making. I have mainly been using SoapQuick from Mission Peak Soap in Fremont and was wondering how I can resize it and still use imperial measurements. I did find this posting from The Soap Queen called How to Resize Cold Process Soap Recipe discusses this by using a Lemon Poppyseed recipe.
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.
