Activity of the Day: I Just Made a New Soap Mold!
I'm so proud of myself. I just made a new soap mold. It was a little bit of an afterthought, because my main project of the morning was to make plant presses. I figured that I might as well pick up the materials for a redundant mold while I was at the hardware store though. This is the second soap mold that I have made. My husband helped me with the first mold, but my design for that one was a bit awkward. That one works, but it is kind of bulky. I use it for double and triple batches. I designed the new one based on a similar one that I had purchased, which is simple and easy to use. This one is just a bit deeper that the other small mold I have. This mold will be used mostly for small batches of soap.
Moira was my helper today. She is my sanding specialist who is also learning to build craft projects at Home Depot. Home Depot has a great program to offer free kid's craft projects the first Saturday of the month.
This mold is perfect for making bars that fit nicely into Kraft soap boxes. Putting soaps into boxes is Moira's other big thrill. She is my #1 employee!
