Stamping Orange Poppyseed Soap...


I love stamping soaps almost as much as I love cutting them. . .  This stamp I had made by Anhoki   http://anhoki.blogspot.com/ and have been very pleased with it.






Green Clay soap with all stamping equipment, ready to begin stamping. . .



I use a toothbrush to clear the left over soap bits out of the stamp. . .








Happy Soaping, Cutting & Stamping!!

Es un sello fantástico y queda maravilloso en tus jabones. Si quieres alguna variedad, nuestro compi jabonero Omar hace unos sellos maravilloso y logos.

What lovely pictures Jennifer! I love your stamp and also the little platform you set your soap on before stamping it. :)

Hola Ana, Muchas gracias! Llevo tiempo admirando tus jabones y los jabones de Omar. No sabia que hacia sellos tambien! Gracias, xo Jen

Nitya, Thank you for your comment. I really like this stamp as well. The platform is simply a piece of wood that I had left over... but I like to stamp on it. Can't wait to see more of your new and original creations from India!!! Buffalo milk? BUFFALO MILK??? I use local goat milk in some of my soaps and am so pleased I found a super goat farm to get the fresh milk from. But I have been looking for sheep milk for more than a year and cannot find any... but buffalo milk? Can't wait to see your creations!! xo Jen

So elegant! Really lovely. I justs picked up some green clay I´m looking forward to trying.

Omar has a gallery of his beautiful stamps that are well worth looking at.

I just had my stamp made with my new logo. I can't wait to use it. If you don't mind me asking; what does the "nm" stand for? Naturally Made! :-)

your stamped soap looks great, and your soaps have a really clean finish/edge, do you use a wire cutter or a blade?

Great post! I always wondered how much pressure it took to stamp soap. (Looks like a lot!)

I've been debating on having a stamp made with my logo. Your post is extremely informative (as usual).

Thanks for sharing!

Your new stamp is lovely and I love the look of your stamp. It's a nice size too. I can't wait to get one made with my logo at some point.

Coco, Green Clay is FABULOUS in soap. I love working with it. Thanks for your comment! xo Jen

Jennifer Young said...

Kenia, NM stands for Naturalmente Mediterráneo or Naturally Mediterranean! You were close! I hope you enjoy your new soap stamp!! xo Jen

Jennifer Young said...

Bobbins and Balms, I finally got a wire cutter. I had been having problems previously with crumble at the bottom of my soap when I cut with a knife... and I discovered a fabulous wire cutter. Please look at my previous post which shows photos cutting with it and links to the supplier. Thanks for your comment! xo Jen

Jennifer Young said...

Robin, Love the name of your company... Kinky is such a great word! Surprisingly it doesn't take much pressure but it all depends on how hard your soap is. If you stamp straight away after removing from the mould, it can be too soft. But it has to be soft enough to get a good impression. With salt soaps, timing is REALLY tricky. Thanks for your comment! xo Jen

Michelle, So glad you like the look of these. I love stamping!! If you get one made I look foward to the post about it!! xo Jen
