My Earring Creations 手工耳環

在紐約的路上見到許多年輕的街頭的藝術創作工匠,擺了小攤子販賣他們的手工藝品,很多創作者在現場就一邊做手環項鍊一邊跟客人推銷自己的作品。其中一個年輕男孩拿著鐵絲捲啊捲的,捲成一個球狀當做項鍊墜子,真的簡單又漂亮。回來後我拿出我的鐵絲也開始依樣畫葫蘆,做出了一對耳環。 When I was visiting New York.

第一次打手工皂_馬賽皂

最近身邊的朋友一個比一個賢慧,開始自己做手工肥皂,手工體香膏,護唇膏,防曬乳。。。應有盡有,看得我好想學,可是一直礙於時間跟大家湊不上,沒辦法跟皂聚。這個禮拜終於讓我跟到了,嘿嘿,學做了有名的馬賽皂! 馬賽皂 Savon de Marseille 是法國馬賽市非常有名的肥皂,它是一種清潔能力很強,用於身體保濕的香皂。馬賽皂的一項必要指標就是其必須含有從橄欖油中製得的72%的脂肪酸。所以我們使用的材料中百分之七十二都是純橄欖油喔! 橄欖油富含維他E,又容易被人體吸收,清洗起來會很滋潤。 材料: 椰子油 Coconut Oil 14% (154g) 棕梠油 Palm Oil 14% (154g) 橄欖油 Olive Oil 72% (792g) 水 Water (372.5g) 氫氧化鈉 NaOH (149.5g) 喜愛的精油 (20g) 做法: 1. 將所有材料依秤重量好。初學者越精準越好。 2. 將油慢慢加熱溶解成液狀。… Continue reading
