    My first ever melt and pour!

    Very Pretty! you've got a good swirl going there, that is my biggest challenge I've never used cocoa butter base, but my goats milk soaps come out pretty hard. Layering is tough... you have to time it just right. I've had quite a few come apart. Good thing about M&P is that you can remelt the failed layer and try again. Below is a link to a facebook group called melt and pour soap makers. VERY good info there and so many talented makers. I call it my "soap porn" page. I literally drool over some of the beautiful soaps they make. welcome to a new addiction https://www.facebook.com/groups/1460683120854552/?ref=bookmarks

    Sugar Plum Scent

    I have tried the RE Frosted sugar plum and it smells very plummy. I really like this one, I wish it was bath and body safe I also have Sugar Plum Fairy from indigo. It is very sweet and I don't get a lot of plum out of it, but it is bath and body safe.

    My Fall Line

    Those are all awesome, MrDan. I love that they are your own. I make melt and pour soap, so I am seeing some pretty cool bars of soap in these too, lol.
  13. Hi Dave, welcome! If only they would do that...(sigh). Shipping is THE most expensive part of this business/hobby/obsession. At least it is for those of us who live far away from a supplier. The best we can do is try to find a wax that works, from a supplier closest to us. Sometimes we get lucky and they will offer free shipping. I just got in on EAP's free shipping a few months back...cut my cost for wax in half. If you tell us your location I'm sure someone on here can tell you the nearest supplier to you of your wax.
