Soap Queen TV Episode 6!

The newest Soap Queen TV Episode is all about the ‘double pour’ technique. I like this soap project because it’s versatile and looks much more complicated as a soap than it is as a technique.

    I’d really love to do this double pour, but the tutorial doesn’t give any measurements…how much soap to melt, amounts of color or fragrance…Help!!

      Hi Teri!

      It really depends on how many bars you’d like to make. If you want to do this technique with just 1 small bar, you can melt 2 ounces of each color. If you are wanting to do a 3 pound loaf you would want 1.5 pounds of each color. I hope this helps. =)

    For H and Splurge Sisters-

    Cold Process soapers will sometimes use alcohol on the surface of the poured raw soap. Spritzing a fine mist of it creates a thin film on the surface that helps to prevent ash from forming on the surface. I use alcohol on the top surface of all my CP soaps to help prevent ash because it also gives the tops of my soap a glossy finish.

    I've never seen a HP soaper use alcohol for this purpose. In HP, the lye is already saponified by the time the soap is put in the mold (with the exception of in-mold oven HP methods), so using alcohol is not required to prevent the ash from forming.

    Kelly,

    Bramble Berry used to carry those thermometers and might carry them again. For now, Cabelas (www.Cabelas.com) has them. They're super cool, aren't they?

    Merryn, #1 is Oatmeal, Milk & Honey for three or four years running now. =)

    Anne Marie:
    could you post these types of demos on other media other than video, as I cannot access the video on any computer.
    Thank You.

    Great video! I will say again Anne-Marie my sons love watching them and they especially love the bloopers! So cute!! Thanks again!

    Anne Marie makes it looks so effortless and fun.
    If you use a loaf mold how do you cut the soap?

    Hi Teresa,

    Thanks for your note and your enthusiasm! Yippeee!

    I think YouTube defaults to sending out one newsletter-type thing every week but (I think) you can change that in your settings.

  9. TeresaR says

    Hooray! A new video!!

    YouTube stopped sending me notices even though I'm subscribed to your videos; I don't know why.

    Regina, You make me laugh. I'm so glad your daughter likes SoapQueenTV. Yipeee!

    No, you do not need the alcohol if you are pouring both soap bases at the same time and they are both the same 'brand' of base.

  11. Regina says

    That brings up another question!
    If you pour different colors at the same time, will they stay together without a spritz of alcohol?

    Also I have to tell you, as soon as kidlet hears the piano opening music to soapqueenTV, she comes running to see! HA! ~R

    -H,

    It is only used for M&P soap and gets rid of soap bubbles. Also it is used to adhere layers together when layering your soaps.

  13. - H says

    I'm new to soaping. Why do you spray with rubbing alcohol? Is this only for melt & pour, or do folk who use cold/hot process do it too?

  14. Amanda says

    Each week when I watch these videos, I get so excited about using the techniques (now I just need more hours in the day!). Thanks again for such easy-to-understand videos.
