Happy Halloween everyone! It’s hard to believe it’s almost November already. We celebrated the last week of October with this beautiful and chilly Misty Maritime Moon Cold Process Tutorial. It uses the new negative space embed technique, which creates a totally unique look.
In the mood for more new techniques? This Vibrant Mehndi Cold Process Soap uses a squeeze bottle to trace a henna-inspired pattern. It was one of several tutorials featured in the Color, Spice and Everything Nice promotion. The promotion also featured this delicious and fruity Mango and Coconut Chia Seed Pudding. It features creamy coconut milk, mango and nutritious chia seeds, which makes a perfect guilt-free snack.
In addition to new techniques, this week was also about new services! The Handmade Beauty Box is a subscription box that delivers monthly DIY beauty projects right to your door. The website is scheduled to launch in November, but the Handmade Beauty Box on Kickstarter allows you to sign up early. Click through to find out more.
New techniques and services are exciting to try, but the classics are fun as well! This throwback episode of Soap Queen TV features a beautiful purple, blue and yellow swirl in the 18 Bar Unfinished Birchwood Mold. With a variety of vibrant colors, this advanced soaping technique results in a gorgeous bar of soap.
Preparation is essential before creating a beautiful swirl, and these small and large heat resistant pouches make that process easy. These sturdy reusable bags are microwavable and boilable. Learn how to use them in this How to Boil Heat Resistant Plastic Pouches blog post.
