    New and need help!

    Post by teen_purple on Wed Nov 21, 2012 7:17 am

    Hi Everyone,

    I am very new to soaping! Infact I haven't even made any yet! I was googling ideas for homemade Christmas presents a couple of days ago and found soap. Thinking it was an awesome idea, I have since read lots on the net and started watching youtube videos. I live in Darwin and its hard to get anything here so I have bought stuff off ebay and I'm still waiting for it to arrive.

    I thought I would start with Melt & Pour soap to see if I'm any good at it and if I like it I would get into making my own base.
    I love the idea of natural products and the more I research soap making, the more I realise that there's still a lot of bad chemicals used when you get into the decorative process. I'm sure there's a way around this and I will keep looking!

    I have lots to learn and would love to talk to anyone!

    Cheers!

    Tina

    Hi I also am new to soaping and have one bit of advice... ask ask ask. Any question ask for advice . Always follow measurements to the letter when starting cold process or hot process and ( pml ) when a recipe says for advanced soapers well they mean it lol as I found out today deciding to try a beer soap recipe I fiddled a teeny bit to what I had on hand... now processing in oven at the moment (called cold process oven process or cpop ) I have had a complete blast and have no idea if it will even turn out as soap or as something pulled up from berrimah boat ramp afterna king tode
