"Beginners will be able to create soaps that don't look like beginner projects with this beautifully photographed book."--Quick & Easy Crafts

The elegant, luxurious soaps found in boutiques are easy to make right at home-even for newcomers to the craft-with this accessible, illustrated question-and-answer guide that presents all the basic techniques. What can I use as a mold for my soap? What tools and supplies do I need? What do I use to add color to my soap-and scent? How do I embed decorative objects? From the cold-processing method to melt-and-pour, from prettily shaped bars to bubbling bath oil, from soap-on a roap to skin-codding bars with oatmeal and aloe vera, every technique and project has instant appeal.

Synopsis:

You'll be able to make a fabulous bar of soap that combines color, fragrance, artistic design, and practical use the very first time you try! It's easy with this book. Learn the basics of using molds and collecting materials. Did you know that oatmeal exfoliates and softens skin? That honey makes a fine moisturizer? Or, that rosebuds and peppermint possess therapeutic properties? Imagine all you can create: beauty bars, fun shapes for kids, tiny soaps with embedded designs, bubbling bath oil, and lots more good clean fun!

Synopsis:

Melt-and-pour soapmaking is the perfect easy and safe craft for kids, and this is the ideal guide to teach them how to do it. All the basics are covered to ensure "sud-sational" success, and 56 fun projects and nearly 300 colorful photos add to the appeal. The fun begins with choosing a soap base and selecting molds, from 3-D seashells and eggs to sandbox toys. Add fragrance, color, or other pizzazzy extras, such as pearlescent powder, shimmery cosmetic grade glitter, crushed dried flower petals, or herbs. Children will have a blast getting wacky with gross-out eyeball soaps, making soap popsicles (complete with a wooden stick), getting happy with smiley faces, fashioning a soapasaurus, or cooking up "alphabet soap." Great gift ideas include a Best Friend Soap Bracelet or clear bar with a photo embedded for Grandma. Plus, there are cool soap facts throughout.

Synopsis:

It's easy to learn the basics of how to collect materials and use moulds for soapmaking. The fun really begins as you select your favourite shades and scents, and add natural botanic elements.
