Austin Texas Soap Making Bootcamp

layers lines and embeds soap class

A couple of Saturdays ago I had my first Austin, Texas Soapmaking Bootcamp where I offered both the basic class and an advanced class. It was a ton of fun. I had some repeats for the basic class so we stepped it up a bit by making a milk soap. The advanced color and swirling class was amazing. Some of the students came up with designs that were simply stunning masterpieces!
