    Does it have to be home made? Or can I buy something from a market stall or organic type shop?

    Soap making is not something that I’m confident with … too scientific :confused: But I like swaps 😉

    Herbie there is always M&P if you don’t want to play with caustic. You can still play with fragrance and color and be really artistic.

    What’s M&P Kerrie? That sounds interesting because I like to play with fragrance and colour.

    Melt and Pour soap, it’s glycerine based. Loads of fun for the beginner and serious soaper alike! can’t really go wrong with it, you melt it, add your stuff, and then let it set 😀 You can get it from good craft shops and a few other places online. Spotlight have it from time to time. Your art and craft shop could have it too?

    I reckon you could have a go at making your own Herby. You’re a good cook and if you can cook, you can make soap. :tup: Melt & Pour is quite acceptable too.

    Ok. I’m in, although my soap from the last swap still hasn’t turned up.

    Thanks, Gianna

    Oh I would love to do this… I have just collected all the ingredients for a batch of soap so I am ready to go.

    It’s been 4 years or more since I last made soap, so this is great motivation 🙂

    Yep I’m in! :clap:

    Am planning a soap making weekend next weekend in preparation for Christmas prezzies etc.

    Redhen, I can’t believe you haven’t received your soap… especially after organising the whole thing!! :hug:

    Thanks Gianna :hug:

    I think I might give melt and pour a try to start with. I really am a bit nervous about the whole caustic soda thing :confused: But who knows, after a few melt and pours I might really get into the real thing (I do tend to get obsessed by new things 😉 )

    Andy, there is no hope. Once you’ve made a batch, you’ll be setting aside a room to store your soap. 😆
