Sometimes, though, you just need to follow one person through the entire process of making one batch of soap–especially if you’re a visual learner, this can be essential to your understanding of soapmaking. That’s why I’m also a big fan of cold-process soapmaking tutorials. To get you started, check out the loofah cold-process soap tutorial from Soap Queen, or Birch Bark’s cold-process soap tutorial over at The Soap Bar–tutorials like these, well-photographed and highly detailed, help you see how the same basic procedures are followed by many different soapers using many different recipes.
Now it’s your turn to show and tell! Feel free to use the Comments section below to point us to your favorite soapmaking resources, recipes, tutorials, and calculators.
