Update to the Homemade Melt and Pour Blog Post

Zacil was able to track down the original blog post that she learned this method from, so I have added the link to the original post (How to Make Your Own Melt and Pour Soap) but will add it here too. The blog is in Russian, but the Google Chrome translator does a pretty good job of translating the post, and there is a wonderful picture tutorial on her blog post too. Thanks Zacil for tracking this down for us! http://magicsoap.ru/4443-mylnaya-osnova-svoimi-rukami-s-nulya-kak-sdelat-v-domashnih-usloviyah-recept-i-master-klass.html

Also, I had wanted to try making the homemade melt and pour pliable, so that I could roll it, shape it and cut it, just like I do with my fondant when I am making decorations for cupcakes. I was able to add some glycerin and cornstarch to the homemade melt and pour soap base to get it to a fondant-like consistency. It's been sitting out a couple of days and is still soft and pliable. You can read more about it on my Facebook page


Thanks for reading!

    1. I just haven't quite figured out how to use them yet. I thought they would have firmed up at some point, but they are still just as soft as when I made them!

  2. I just wonder where they are going to finish!? Can't wait to see...
    Thanks for the link, I even can understand some! And it's also good to know that Zacil's modified recipe works too! I have some m&p base, but this is so tempting, I need to try it!

  4. I am always impressed with pastel colors you obtain in soaps. I see that M&P will be big playground for you and hardly wait to see your new soap designs using M&P embeds.
