Providing soapers with tips, tricks, resources and inspiration is rewarding and fun. This week we reached out to soapers all over the world with the Soaping all over the World: Resources for International Soapers guide. We also shared a SQTV Short about an easy trick for How to Clean Oily Containers that hopefully all DIY’ers will find helpful.
While tips and tricks are awesome, nothing beats soapy inspiration. Instead of focusing on colors and intricate patterns, simple and sophisticated was the name of the game in the Black, White & Gold All Over Tutorial. With a touch of gold mica on top and contrasting black and white layers, this soap really shines. It’s also a great tutorial for beginners!
If you love the look of gold mica, there are several ways to incorporate it into your soap. In the Shamrock Cold Process Tutorial, gold mica is stamped in the center and dusted on top. Mica can also be painted onto soap, as shown in this Soap Queen Tv Video. If you’re looking for bright color instead of sparkle, our Facebook Photo of the Week from Magical Star is right up your alley:
