When Debbie started Soapylove she struggled with her love of color and sweets versus her attraction to modern design. The two didn’t look right in the same shop so she put my sophisticated soaps away and focused on soapsicles and soap tarts (which she loves passionately!).

Now Debbie is happy to share many of the techniques she is most proud of. With lots of photos and tips, you will be able to recreate several of her styles, and with loads of inspirational images and resources, you’ll be making up your own experiments, too.
