Maker Faire



Maker Faire, originally uploaded by fetosoap.

We’ve just come back from both the Handcrafted Soapmakers Guild Conference and Maker Faire. Here are some of the soaps people made at my booth at Maker Faire!

Our Baked Bread Candles are going to be in a stage production!

Baked Bread CandleA customer just called me to re-order some Baked Bread Candles for a stage production that his school is putting on that includes a bakery. He is trying to make the scene seem as realistic as possible – including making the audience salivate – so he’s going to be burning Feto Soap’s candles during the performance. He said he purchased from a couple of different retailers that were offering the same Baked Bread scent, but ours were the only ones that were spot-on.

Mooolds.

At Maker Faire I will have oval, round, rectangle, floral patterned and bees & honeycomb molds for people to use to create their own soap. I will also be bringing a box of toys, glitter and fragrances so you can make your soap look and have whatever you desire in it!

Here’s a fun cow soap I made with blue colorant, gold glitter and fresh rain fragrance in an oval mold.

Liquid Soap Colorants

I’ve made the decision on what 10 colors to bring with me at Maker Faire. The soap you create can be yellow, pink, red, orange, green, sea foam green, neon lime, blue, tan, or purple! soap colorants

Red Palm Oil Experiment

Shea Butter Red Palm Oil Soap

At Feto Soap, we are always trying out different ingredients to bring you the best and beautiful soaps possible. This Shea Butter Soap is made with Red Palm Oil – no colorant was added to this soap, yet it has a beautiful golden hue. It is a cold process soap and still in curing mode, so not yet available for purchase.

Stay tuned for more soap experiments to come!

Soapmaking–Better than Store Bought

Discover the benefits and fun of making and using handmade soap. Not only is it better for your skin but it also allows you to be creative since you select the ingredients, colors, fragrances and shapes. Learn to overcome your fear of working with lye (an essential ingredient in all soap) as well as important safety precautions as you learn to produce a batch of soap. NOTE: Each student will take home one bar of soap.
