  1. Oh JEEZE... SUCH excitement!!!! I'm sitting here remembering the old ladies melting down clear plastic milk jugs and hot glue sticks to make hard dipping wax. They would also get a large piece of lead split shot (like the kind used in fishing) and pinch it onto a length of cotton trussing twin with their teeth and then dip that into a mix of hot paraffin and vaseline to load their wicks. Russians would just take a wick (COMPLETELY UNSECURED) and literally ROLL it up in a lopsided rectangular piece of beeswax comb and that was the STANDARD beeswax candle over there. 😂 ❤️ Sponiebr The Executor of Bad Ideas and Sundry Services
  2. I've not been making much these days. Last batch I made was back in August I think and it was a couple of test batches. I've been busy with a bunch of other projects, which after winter, should be self sustaining. Add to that, soap hasn't been moving much this year and not making soap is the result. Last year I was bust'n butt to get enough soap made for the holidays and I swore I wouldn't get into that situation again. This year I've been topped off on all of my popular scents, and not a SINGLE holiday order. That's not true... I am bartering a pile of soap for something I would normally have to pay for... (and NO! It's NOT THAT!!!) Oh MURPHY! You trickster you! Sponiebr The Executor of Bad Ideas and Sundry Services
  3. I made the patch soap, and I even added it to my line. Turned out great. I've got no pictures of it, but it's pink-ish and white swirls like 99.9% of ALL of my soap. This is a special edition Christmas loaf I made of HTFHP (which I'm NOT doing anymore, I'm back to straight CP with a HUGE water discount). It's called Noel's Warmth and it's got CS Christmas Hearth in it. I have NO internet at work (still) so I'm not on here as much these days.

  4. I was SO EXCITED when I saw this thread. I was like OH!!! THAT'S MEEEEEEE!!!!! OMG!!! YAS!!! I'M THAT GUY!!!!! I make people incensed ALL THE TIME!!!! NOT what you were talking about, apparently. dammit. Sponiebr The Executor of Bad Ideas and Sundry Services
  5. I get my palm oil and coconut oil from websturant now. The palm oil you kinda have to wait until the winter months though because gosh just ONE pin hole in that plastic bag and it's a special delivery from Hannibal Lecter.
  6. Give them websturant's store price on Luanna 35 pound box of white 76F Coconut oil... I doubt they'll honor that price because, oh, we don't sell it in 35 pound boxes...
  7. Yeah BA get's ya with the shipping EVERY TIME. Even when I get a great deal from them on something, it ends up being fractionally less than just buying it from anywhere else. (anywhere INCLUDING BB.) I got so pissed off with their little bait and switch game about "Prices as LOW AS $X.XX per pound!!!" Yeah, except that price is for a tanker railcar and every other price is just meh. I got 2 gallons of Castor Oil from them a few months back and it ended up being like $2 less than Columbus Foods. (MRRRRGHHHHHHH! I've gots SO much mads... Sooooo much...) Sponiebr The Executor of Bad Ideas and Sundry Services
  8. You mean to tell me that method is NOT a legit method for making a candle? I mean: It burns! It produces scent! It gives LIGHT! It's a CANDLE. SMDH... LOL. Sorry I've been out for a while... I'm hoping I can come back more frequently and, uh... Stir the pots... (both pour and soap pots) Cheers, Sponiebr The Executor of Bad Ideas and Sundry Services
  9. Did I ever tell you I adore you TT? No? Well I adore you TT. ❤️ Sponiebr The Executor of Bad Ideas, Sundry Services, and Losing Women...
  10. Well, it's moot now. The principle object for my endeavors has left. I got had... AGAIN.
  11. NO! I won't compromise on those at all! Completely counterproductive. Then add to that the weird little $300 MOLD to make the damned things and, all of the sudden I'm like: "Hey Bae!!! Maybe it's Maybelline!?" I was just thinking with the crap tons of mica's and oxides I have on hand that at least blush should be doable. MAYBE nail polish would be a wiser choice?
  12. That's EXACTLY where I started GMTA. I just have ABSOLUTELY NO CONCEPT about what these products should or should NOT be like because I have NEVER used them. Chapstick is as close to a lipstick as I've ever used. I feel like the first guy the American Government came to and said... "SO! We're going to the MOON, and YOU'RE the guy that's gonna make it happen!" But I have something old rocket man DIDN'T have... YOUTUBE! I'm SURE I can figure this out... Well, I might be able to get SOMETHING usable out of my endeavors. FIRST things FIRST! What goes into that stuff you girls pat onto yer beautiful lil faces? Mica, Oxides, I would THINK stearic acid... but what ELSE? If I can figure blush out lipsticks should be fairly straight forward... Blissful ignorance feels AN AWFUL LOT like HOPE! Cheers, Sponiebr The Executor of Whatever I gotta be... I do what it takes, 'n junk...
  13. Along this same line can someone point me in the right direction for Lipstick base, like date night lipstick stuff? I'mma need some direction on how to make eyeshadow and blush pressed into them little metal pans. (OH MY GAWD!!!! WHAT HAS BECOME OF ME!!!!!???) Help me! Help ME!!! Thank you for your support... Sponiebr The Executor of Making Girlfriends HAPPY and some other junk that I can't remember anymore... Bad soap and.... I dunno
  14. Yep the 2 shortenings are indeed beef tallow and palm oil blends. And just to clarify the simple 3 oil soap you mentioned not more than adding 5% castor oil, and then 76F Coconut Oil, High Oleic Sunflower oil, or Olive oil?
