Make sure your pot of soap is at a light trace. This makes working with the raw soap much easier for playing with layers, splots, drops, or splatters. I always have my ingredients in a see through tray or shoe box, labeled with a sticky note on the inside, and I pop my recipe sheet in there too.
When making your own recipe sheet, make sure to detail all the jugs of soap you'll need, what colors, and how much to reserve for future stages as your batch of soap is built up.

For moon chasers like me and Jason, it's gonna be an exciting night as we jump in the car and... chase the moon. Sometimes it beats us, and has risen too high before we get the chance to snap the perfect pic. Other times the clouds envelope it and it's a wipe out. We've been hoping all week that tonight just might bring us the perfect sky.
Right now though, it's a gloomy and wet morning out there. Looking at the weather forecast for tonight, it looks like we're probably gonna have to chase the sky too. It won't be the first time we've hopped across a few states in search of the perfect moon. Jason's checking the weather station stats with his breakfast. My adrenaline is running already. The moon chase is on!
*The moon in the pic is the Cardinal Moon we chased back in July 2010. If you click on it, you'll see it much closer up.
