Can we make Swirls in our Melt and Pour Soap Base

Posted on 19 Oct 00:43 , 0 comments
OH goodness, you folks said "Oh don't worry if your filming of a swirl technique is not good enough" You may be sorry - I think I had touched the camera with soapy fingers and its all frosted and then I tried to turn it off and filmed my dface sideways at the end - Oh dear! I promise I will get better at this. This was something new I was trying and theres 2 more videos after this I will get up 0 the 2nd is the cut and the 3rd is nailing it a different way. 
I will also get one up with normal swirls soon

2017 NICNAS Updates

Posted on 28 Jul 23:36 , 0 comments
For Australians that need to register (if you use bases from a registered Australian company you do not need to, as long as your supplier is registered).
For those that do need to register, I will be meeting with the NICNAS team again next week directly in relation to soap makers. However for now, here's few important points:
  1. ALL passwords on the site expire after 45 days, you will need a new one every 45 days and you cannot use the same one, it must be at least 10 characters long (it's a coding problem they are working on)
  2. When you click to change your password, there's a lag of up to several hours before it resets, during this time it will look like it is working but in fact it isn't, you can only reset your password once in 24-48 hours, so if you keep resetting you may end up in a loop which will lock you out (again a coding glitch)
  3. The lowest price bracket is $138 (if you are spending less than $125,000 per year - so the figure you put won't change your premium if under this amount
  4. There are new categories of chemicals on the website, however for the most of us we can simply put "nothing changed since last year"
  5. It is an annual fee starting and ending at this time of the year, regardless of when you apply to join
