Buttercup Melt & Pour Soap DIY
It has been a really rain month here in California. I am so looking forward to spring to arrive. When I saw this melt and pour soap project from The Soap Queen called Buttercup Melt & Pour Soap made the rain go away momentarily. This advanced melt and pour soap project takes 3 to 4 hours to complete and results in 3-4 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.
