Soap Carving..........

As kids, we used to make soap carvings. You can make them as plain or fancy as your creativity allows. You can use your imagination or look in a book for a picture you would like to carve. Some easy ones to start with are whales, dolphins, birds, cars and boats. Flowers, ships and bridges get a bit intricate but are lovely. This is a book on soap carving for children of all ages. Soap carving isn't as hard as you might imagine. You don't waste soap; as you can always use the scraps for washing your hands or soaking some laundry.
You need to use Ivory soap as it is soft and easy to carve. So on the next rainy day, dig out a bar of Ivory and let your imagination run wild.
Till next time.......
