Soap Making In Progress


I will be adding some of these photos to a new “Soap Making” section on my other blog  http://naturalmentemediterraneo.blogspot.com/

I am lucky to have the chance to be working with a photographer lately. We are swapping services as I am giving him language classes. He is also a web-designer... hmmm... the possibilities...


equipment...


some ingredients...


measuring and pouring...


this time I was making a Pomegranate soap






some butters & hard oils...


mixing after melting...



mixing lye with oils...



awaiting trace...


adding the at-trace ingredients...



pouring...

 

cut soap...


I had experimented with madder root but unfortunately it didn't take too long before this colour (which I had really liked) turned dark because of the pomegranate juice...

There are a ton more photos but these are some of my favourites.  Hope you have enjoyed a peek behind the scenes!

Which were your favourite photos here?

UPDATE:  My recent olive oil experiment is almost complete.  I am waiting for testing results from a couple of more people and then I can put all of the information together and publish, hopefully before Christmas!!
Happy soaping!!!

xoxo Jen
