I created Soaping With Style as a platform to improve my skills and develop into a soap artist. I want to experiment with different techniques and tools to transform a boring bar into sensational soap! I’ll also post helpful soap resources and information for soap enthusiasts. It’s all cold process – all the time.
I love making cold process soap but it didn’t always love me. It’s taken much trial and error to get to a place where I like my soaps. They are functional but aren’t always easy on the eyes. At times I felt like a scientist in love with the monster, despite how hideous it was!
Some of the problems I have encountered in my quest to be better at soaping are:
Too much colorant
Not enough colorant
Lack of color contrast
Failed piping attempts
Poor color choices
Some soap batches look great while others don’t. Practice makes better and my goal is to have consistent results. As I work to improve and beautify this craft I welcome any tips you may have. Furthermore if there is something you want to see or if you have a soap related question, leave it in the comments.
