Soap Crafting: Step-by-Step Techniques for Making 31 Unique Cold-Process Soaps -  Soapmaking is the perfect union of chemistry and craft and making soap at home allows soapmakers of all levels to transform the functional into the fantastic.  In Soap Crafting, The Soap Queen (a.k.a. Anne-Marie Faiola) shows how to make beautiful handmade soap through full-color step-by-step visual instructions and 31 recipes that make it easy to navigate the process.  New tequniques and effects will keep experienced soapmakers creating ever more distinctive soaps, while beginners will have no problem successfully making their first batch.  The Soap Queen makes cold-process soapmaking safe and accessible while inviting creative crafters to explore the full range of special effects that can be achieved in a bar of soap.  With chapters on using colors like neon, oxide, and mica; molds, including milk jugs, wood molds, and PVC pipe; additives such as coffee, oatmeal, and clay; and techniques, like embedding, funnel pour, and swirling, this is the one stop resource for soapmakers of all skill levels.

Great Book!
This is my first year making soap and this book was key to my success. It out lines things very nicely. When you get into doing them its nice that Soap Queen usually has a video to go along with the soap you want to make. I've found this a nice hobby and great way to be artistic and it is one of the best stress relievers ever! I love Bramble Berry products and Soap Queen video's are top of the line instructions. Great Book!

Just what I was looking for
I needed to take my soaping to the next level and make visually pleasing soaps. This book helped me achieve my goal. There are many different techniques with different recipes for each. It even gives suggestions on how to use household items as molds. My one complaint is what another reviewer said about the binding, it is a little too small. When I try to turn the page I have to be careful so I don't rip the page. I think if the spiral binder was a little larger I could turn the page a little easier. I would recommend this book to everyone.

I have had my eye on this book for QUITE a while now, but I kept finding reasons why I just couldn't afford the extra expense. Today, I'm finally going to get it! I cannot WAIT!

Holy Cow this book is AWESOME!!!!!
I purchased this as an e- book. I found it at about 8pm and yes I stayed up ALL night because I could not put it down. It has the best clearest pictures and instructions of any instructional book I have and I have a thorough library. This book has all the tips and tricks I've been trying to find and they are all in one place. The book is downright inspirational. I'd not made soap in months because i was just bored! I had my favorite recipe and a couple other stand by's. Now I can't wait to dive in again. It also includes a very helpful section on troubleshooting that gave even an experienced soaper like me insight. Buy this book if you don't get any others!
