• What non-toxic additions can you put into handmade soap to jazz it up?

    I'm learning to make soap so that I have a nice, handmade gift to give to coworkers, friends, etc. I was wondering if there are any non-toxic additions I can add into it? I've tried apricot seeds for example, and may try glitter. Thanks for your help!

I'd like to sell it on Ebay, but I don't know what it's called. It basically looks like an adjustable wood frame. This is a picture of it with a needlepoint canvas attached.

  • Gorilla Glue, Super Glue and E6000. Are they all the same?

    I'm planning on doing some craft projects and I don't know the right glue to use. I'm going to be gluing metal together and maybe glass.

    I'm planning on doing some craft projects and I don't know the right glue to use. I'm going to be gluing metal together and maybe glass. Normally I use hot glue gun for everything but I was told it's not strong enough for what I plan on doing. Other crafters seem to use E6000 a lot but I've read that it's really toxic and can cause problems if you breath in the fumes. I plan on working outside but the warnings got me paranoid. So, anyone know if Super Glue is strong enough to hold metal and glass together or maybe Gorilla Glue. Or is the E6000 my only real option.

  • Is it embarrassing to take lessons now or should I just teach myself instead?

    Best answer: Why would you be embarrassed to take lessons in the first place? nobody starts out perfect at anything. It's not like the teacher will expect you to be Beethoven during your first lesson. You should go for it.
