Soap Stamping It Up!

 

I just made a nice batch of nettle shampoo bars but because they are palm free and quite sticky with the castor oil that is needed to make the bubbly part of shampoo- I pour these bars into a regular old square mold. To liven them up I bought this cute little mold from Milky Way Molds online from Aquarius Aromatherapy Soap Supply in BC. I waited about five days before stamping this batch because it is quite soft. I will also let these cure a bit longer maybe about 6 weeks.

I swiped a mallet from my husband and here is the result. I usually give it about two good thwacks.

I was tired of hunting for stinging nettles in the forest so I planted some in the garden. I do not advise this. They really like the garden and pop up everywhere making weeding quite painful. Although this batch is from a little corner of the vegetable garden. It made a really nice deep green.

Sorry I have been a bit behind in this blog. I am currently taking a course in ceramics which is fun but making me very busy. ( also a course on writing drama for radio and film- silly me!)

On the positive side, I am learning how to make clay stamps so stay tuned for the tutorial to make your own personalized stamps.

One thought on “Soap Stamping It Up!

  1. Have you made any progress in making your own stamps? Also, how does Rick make your molds? I need to learn how to do that, but with learning how to make all-natural soap, shampoo and conditioner bars, bug spray, cleaning products AND photography, I’m not sure I will get to it anytime soon!
