Skype Soap Tutorial with Emily Shieh!
This was Emily's 3rd trial for this sort of teaching format and I was lucky enough to be a part of her class. As soon as I knew I would be able to participate, I started preparing. I tried some recipes that would allow for slow trace, so I would have lots of time to play with the layers. I also bought new micas (non bleeding) and liquid Lab Colors (bleeding) just for the session, but I will get tons of use out of them!
There was some improvisation, and I ended up using both colorants, but I am quite happy with the results. There is always room for improvement, but I feel that Emily's technique was AWESOME, and although I have done quite a few gradient soaps, I had never done one in the way she taught us. I won't give away her secret in case she begins teaching this as a paid class, but it was genius!
Next, I hope Emily writes a book! Come one Emily! You know all us crazy soapers would buy it!
Also, I am looking for a name for this bar. It is scented with an energizing citrus blend.
