Re-Creating Cold Process and Melt & Pour Soap Designs
Have you ever wondered if you could take a melt and pour technique and use it in cold process batch? The answer depends entirely the design and technique of the project. So basically, some CP techniques can be recreated with melt and pour and some cannot, and vice verse. Why? Because the texture and behavior of CP and melt and pour are completely different. If you want to learn more, I would recommend reading the post from The Soap Queen called Re-creating Cold Process and Melt and Pour Soap Designs.
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.
