I currently run a small soap loaf business. This book has solved certain problems that I was having with colour bleeding, and soap cracking.
Very good reference to both the experienced as well as the beginner.
Also full of good idea's for someone starting out - as I was.

4.0 out of 5 stars Handy melt and pour projects 13 Feb 2011
By MrsK
As you can probably guess from the spelling of the title, this book was published in the US. This means that some of the measurements are in cups or ounces, but it's easy enough to find conversion charts online, and I suggest printing one and sticking it in the front for easy reference.

Having been published in 2000, a few of the pictures are looking quite dated now, but I still purchased it as I find it very difficult to find books on the subject of melt and pour soap making (or melt and mold as it's referred to here), which is the craft of making soap from ready made soap base.

The book is actually a very handy reference. It starts off with step by step instructions on making melt and pour soap and also features a troubleshooting guide for any problems you may encounter and advice on colouring and additives such as herbs. There are a huge amount of different projects in here, and each has a difficulty rating, which is handy for a beginner. I don't think this book quite beats Elaine Stavert's `Soaps' but if you're looking for some new projects I'd recommend giving it a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars great book!!! 23 May 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic book for me as I am a newbee to soap making. It is very detailed and contains a variety of different kinds of soaps to make. It is a great starter for the beginner as it takes you step by step through different techniques. I believe that it is also just as useful to the seasoned soap maker. I must admit when it arrived and I started to read it I couldn't put it down. I can't recommend it enough!!
