Saponifier’s ‘In The Lab’ writer, Dr Robert McDaniel, just sent word that he received a pre-publication copy of his new book, “Soap Maker’s Workshop” which includes a DVD of him taking you through the process of making soap from ingredient selection to pouring it into the mold. At 160 pages it is a serious expansion of his original book published in 2000. This time he has included hot process soapmaking in most of its iterations.
Dr Bob, states: “It looks good though the publisher did not include several of our special graphics. According to amazon it will officially appear July 7. Note: the cover was changed by their marketing department so it will appear somewhat different from the picture on amazon.”
Soap making artisans Dr. Robert and Katherine McDaniel created this workshop to help you on your journey into soap making, whether you’re just starting out and planning to make a few bars for gifts and fundraising events or you are planning to join the hundreds and thousands in the soap cottage industry with plans to expand to a sustainable business. Thirty step-by-step, detailed recipes and photos showcase a variety of soap products including: liquid soaps, mousses, shampoos and African Black Soap, touted for its healing properties for extreme dryness, blemishes, wrinkles, stretch marks and scars. Learn to work with fragrances and discover the benefits of aromatherapy associated with many essential oils; take control of the ingredients and learn to use sustainable resources. A bonus DVD tutorial walks you through the soap-making process.
