Soapmaking Class Continued

The soap I made at soapmaking class is still curing.  You can read all about the class on my blog at  Soapmaking with McGillycuddy's Naturals 

I decided today, since I had time after Thanksgiving dinner, to finally cut and shape my soap.  The soap is still curing and is still moist so it was pretty easy to slice.  I borrowed my mom's chef knife so the cuts would be smooth and sliced bars out of the soap.  I had some ends and trimmings left so I made mini bars of soap and molded the rest into little soap balls.

My 1 brick of soap that I made turned out to give me 24 full size bars of soap, 9 mini bars of soap and 13 soap balls!  The soap has to finish curing but will be ready to use or pack as gifts soon.

  1. Very cool! I didn't realize there were whole classes for soapmaking. A while back, I reviewed a soap kit... except it wasn't making soap, just shaping it. Not nearly as interesting!

    P.S. - Thanks for stopping by on my SITS Day! I'm your newest follower :)

  2. Thanks! Yes, a local natural beauty shop held the class at their farm where they make all their products. It was a lot of fun.

  3. Very interesting! I know that was a fun class.

  4. Wow, what a cool thing to learn to do. :)

  5. Wow! I imagined you would get to pour it into cool little molds at the factory! Instead, you came home with that huge tote! How cool that soap has to 'cure' before it's ready to use. I didn't know that at all.


I look forward to reading your comment! Sorry I had to set up moderation because I was getting a lot of spam.
