Soap making and bath bombs

Teaching is such a wonderful experience and I love to share my passion of making soaps and bath bombs with others. Often people come to these courses not really expecting much from themselves, but then they get all excited when they find out that soap making isn’t all that difficult and that they are very capable of creating some pretty amazing soaps themselves.

Got the blues?

Three blue micas, so similar in colour, yet result in very different shades of blue in cold process soap. It’s always good to test your micas before using it in soap making as this week’s test clearly showed.

Beautiful greens

Beautiful greens in four different shades covering the whole spectrum. There is a yellow-green of apples, a grey-green of evergreen fir trees, a gorgeous blue-green shade, and a pale green that would work perfect as a base colour in a soap design.

DIY Lipstick

Making your own lipstick can seem daunting at first, but once you’ve made your first lipstick, you’ll want to keep making more! Not only can you make sure you only use natural ingredients, you also get to do the fun part of playing with colours. For extra fun, why not make it a girls night in and turn it into a crafty lipstick party?
