Soap Crafting Advance Copy Has Arrived!

After many sleepless nights, hundreds of hours in the Soap Lab and thousands of bars of soap, the time has come: the book is finally here! Although there is only one copy of Soap Crafting for now, it’s surreal and gratifying to physically flip through its pages.

We’ve seen the Advance Reader Copy (otherwise known as the “dummy” book) as well in its digital form, but nothing compares to holding the bound, hardback, full color final product. It’s total vindication for a year’s worth of hard work (not only for me but our entire team). With 31 brand new cold process tutorials and information on everything from oils to tools to a comprehensive FAQ and Troubleshooting section,  this is one solid soapmaking companion.

Pre-orders for Soap Crafting are still available, and each pre-order comes with two complementary exclusive video downloads for recipes in the book, two never-before-seen-projects download sheets (that aren’t included in the book but are really rad) and a special comprehensive guide to colorants. Those who pre-order can expect their copy to ship out in the beginning of August

Jamisen stopped by the office for a visit today, and we sat down and flipped through the book together.

One more bonus look utilizing Instagram’s new 15 second video editing options! The book has so many full page, full color photos…

    Congratulations Anne-Marie! The book looks stunning. I placed my order as soon as you announced it – I can’t wait to see it. And the video with Jamison is so precious. He’s getting so big! Hugs!

    Congratulations on the book, it looks beautiful, I cant wait ’til I get my copy.
    Just a quick query though, I’d love to take advantage of the free videos on offer with pre-order but I’m in Ireland and I’m wondering if it will be worthwhile with the shipping cost?
    Otherwise, I can order it through Amazon which says its release is August 27th. You guys must be super excited!!!

      Hi Kerry!

      Unfortunately, we cannot take pre-orders for international customers at this time. We would love to, but our system is unable to accommodate it.

      But, if you e-mail sma(at)brambleberry(dot)com, we can put you on the international orders notification list so you can get access to the videos (once you’ve purchased the book) and an email when the book does get released. I hope this helps! :)

      Happy Soaping!

    You do know that the video above is called “a big bunny” and is NOT about the book, or am I not getting sth important?

    • says

      Good morning, Magda!

      We aren’t seeing any big bunny videos on our side, but if you are having trouble viewing the video, go ahead and try refreshing your browser. We’d love for you to be able to view the video and see what you think of our first copy of the book! :)
