New Soap Making Tutorial...Coming Soon

It can't possibly be August. Summer is flying by and it's been busy, busy, busy around here. We're continuing work on a new web site that we hope to launch early Fall and there are a number of new mold designs in the works. With all this background activity, I've had little extra time to work on special projects. However, here is a sneak peek of a new tutorial on making sushi soap rolls. The tutorial will be released later this month and features two versions that demonstrate different techniques. I've pictured Version 1 in this post.

GoPlanet previously released a tutorial showing how to make a soap sushi roll using actual nori seaweed and included skin nuturing items such as adzuki beans, ground oats, and soy protein. These newest tutorials present a different take on the same themed soap.

The prep work for this project was a bit time consuming but yielded 13 soaps within approximately 2 hours. Sounds like alot of time, but consider this.
  • I made one sushi soap roll, but had prepped for two more rolls. I could have easily made additional rolls with minimal prep work.

  • This was a new project and some of the time involved the OOPS factor.

Depending on your level of Melt & Pour soaping experience, I believe it's possible to make 39-40 soaps in about 2 hours. Not bad! My soaps weighed in at around 1.75 to 2 ounces per slice. I'll share more of the details and working notes once the tutorial is released.
