We just received a new shipment of PJ’s Melt and Pour tool kits. I’ve broken this post into a few parts worth. I hope that you find it helpful for making artistic melt and pour soaps a la PJ. This M&P tutorial is helpful even if you don’t have a cool PJ Tool Kit.
Step # 1-2Make sure your mold and tools are clean and your pan of hot water (for cleaning tools) is on simmer.
Step # 3-4 Select your colors & fragrances ahead of time. If you know they will need adjustments (more soap pigment or fragrance) have those ready.
Step # 5-6 Cover all containers with plastic wrap before melting; melt only the color you need when needed.
These are all small amounts of soap (including the green for the base since they are hand soap sized) I suggest zapping at 35 second intervals stirring between zaps ’til melted.
I’ll be posting more in this four-part series over the next few days.

This is great! I bought PJ’s tool kit about a month ago. She includes a detailed instruction sheet, but actually seeing it done really helps.
