This is a quick resource for the frequently asked questions. I'm busy working on a new book/soap/inspiration. ;)
What is soap dough?

"I made soap dough once and it didn't turn out".
I understand. Learning to weight exactly, becoming aware of soap making behaviors and being fully present to soap making can take time. Keep at it. I only offer soap dough recipes that have been tried and tested, and tested, and tested. The soap dough recipes I offer work. Keep at it.
If you want to learn how to make great soap dough, follow the instructions exactly. Do not substitute, do not over/under weight, and adhere to temperatures suggested. Above all, read.
Do you offer / sell embellishments?
Do you wholesale?
No. I create. I create new soaps, new designs and offer inspiration. I also am (more than likely) working on a new book. I offer soaps rarely ever seen. So you can purchase a bar of original handmade Sorcery Soap. My job is to inspire and it takes most of my waking (and dreaming) time.
Can I substitute ______ oil/butter?
No. I have refined each of the 20 soap dough recipes I offer. If you want another recipe, it (more than likely) is already included in one of the four books offered. All these recipes include reasonable and easy to obtain ingredients.
How do you get such white soap?
Titanium dioxide and refined butters and oils. The lighter the soap base the more white your soap will appear. I outline the details of this process in The Magic of Soap Dough Book. Each book is packed with soap information you'll not find elsewhere.
Can I remelt or put my soap dough in the microwave?
No. Use the warmth of your hands and pressure of fingers to mold soap dough.
Can I copy your design?
Yes. You can copy. All things take practice and by copying a design that has already been worked out and discovered, is easier. You cannot build your business around my designs. I did that. It is always - ALWAYS - good form to acknowledge where you learned about soap dough, and/or the design you copied. I see most creations and when someone does not acknowledge I know that, too.
Can I pick up an order?
No. We'd be happy to ship to you.
Do you have a group?
Yes! We have a 6,000 member strong group where we share our unique designs, support each other and most of all, inspire each other! Sorcery Creations Group. If you'd like to join ANSWER ALL QUESTIONS!
