Simple Secrets: Creating the 'In The Pot Swirl' Technique
It has been over a year since I started making soap by the cold process method. I hate to admit that for my first batch of soap, I attempted an In The Pot Swirl technique. I know that was daring for my first batch of soap and I have to admit it came out great. The "In The Pot Swirl" is one of the easiest swirls to accomplish, and it helps bring your soap making bragging rights from hobbist to seasoned crafter. If you would like to learn more about this technique, read the article called Simple Secrets: Creating the "In the Post Swirl' Technique" from Wholesale Supplies Plus.
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.
