Currant & Cranberry Cold Process Tutorial
Are you looking for a really interesting cold process soap recipe to try? Have you ever heard of color contrasting? Color contrasting can make your soap really stand out. The colors that you use really pop and it creates a dramatic effect. In all of the arts and wines festivals that I have been too I have not seen a booth have bars of soap that look like this. You can learn how to do this technique in a recent post from The Soap Queen called Currant and Cranberry Cold Process Tutorial. This is an intermediate soap project that takes about 1 to 2 hours to make and yields about 4 pounds of soap.
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.
