I was lucky to teach the Valentine’s Melt & Pour and Bath Fizzy class at Otion to a full house. There were many happy and excited women who all showed up to learn basic melt and pour with a Valentine’s theme. The next class at Otion is the Clamshell & Cameo Melt and Pour class on February 28 – suitable for beginners and advanced soapers alike. The photo above is the Rose Melt and Pour soap in progress.
We also made bath fizzies galore. There was lots of surprise and excitement over the low cost of producing a bath bomb (who can beat under $1 to make a smelly bath fizzy that performs the same or better than anything in stores?). All the attendees made perfect fizzies their first try and left with between 4 and 12 bath fizzies each.
The class made the Bath Fizzies with Rose Petals project (here). The Milky Way Heart Series really turned out great for the white nature of the fizzy. It looked very pure and clean. We finished off with the Martha Stewart Rubbing Stamping Soap project. Every single soap turned out beautifully. The class soapers left with a pile of soaps and fizzies.
As for me, I was completely blown away with the excitement and ethusiasm displayed by all the soapers. They energized me with their creativity and fervor for trying new things. I hope to see YOU at the next class.

I love all the Valentine’s soaps! How creative with the rose petals.
I can’t get over how cool the stamp soaps are! They look better than anything you could find commercially.

Those projects look great. People want handcrafted gifts for Valentine’s Day.

Looks like everyone was having lots of fun! Wish I lived closer…:(
I made bath fizzies this weekend as well. I used a couple of different molds to make them (Wilton flexable tiny cupcake molds, they were ridged on the sides like Reeces Cups, I didn’t like those, too fragile, and a heart cookie cutter) but by far the best fizzie I made was molded in the plastic heart shaped packaging that the cupcake molds came in. I tried them out on a friend and they were great! Thanks for the tutorial Anne-Marie!
What fun to learn how to make those beautiful soaps! Wish I lived closer!
