I love Christmas, especially preparing all the gifts for everyone that is special to me :)
Stamping your soaps is an easy way to add more life to your soaps!

When stamping your soap, the softness/hardness of the soap and even the soap recipe can greatly influence your stamping.
I usually stamp my soaps 2 or 3 days after I cut them (depends on how soft the soap is, can't be too soft). You don't want to stamp the soap if it is too soft, and you don't want to stamp it when it is too hard either! With practice you will also begin to know when it is best to stamp!
Some soaps can be directly stamped with perfect results and other recipes might need some tricks. For example, brushing oil (ex: almond oil) on top of the stamp will help release the stamp from the soap and leave a better definition of the stamped area.
You can also brush some sparkle or mica to your stamping area to get a nice coloured depression.
Don't use alcohol on your acrylic stamps/parts.
Alcohol damages acrylic, especially laser cut acrylic.
These stamps are lasered cut.
The size of each stamp is 5cmx5cm and the stamping are is between 3.5cm and 4 cm wide.
Clean with warm water, cloth and soap detergent.
