The Aussies, Canadians and English make soap
You may remember my post about the family wedding and all the relatives staying. The Dutch side of our family making soap with me.
When the rest of the family heard about the soap making they had to have a try for themselves.
I had two sessions: the first was with Sarah, my sister in law who is the editor of an amazing crafty magazine in the UK – Crafts Beautiful. Above is the soap I made and had given her a few months ago when I went to visit her in the UK. She decided that was the one she wanted to make. Next week I will show you the tutorial to make these soaps.
Below is Sarah with her soap. She chose an Ultramarine Pink with Opaque glycerine soap base and a Neroli essential oil.
Next we had Emily, Jane, Sarah, Diny and Deb.
Some of them chose to make a basic clear Melt and Pour option and the others chose opaque and they all added colour and fragrance.
I think they all had some fun and it is always satisfying to create something.
