How Learning in the Crafter's Community Works

Cottage DIY Features the Full 12 Module (80 Lesson) Thermal Mermaid
Soap & Cosmetic Course & Recipe Directory

The Thermal Mermaid Soap Maker's Course contains 12 Modules with 80 lessons covering everything you need to know about learning the Cottage Industry of soap making along with modern techniques in cosmetic and bath production. The full course is crafted for the very beginner, includes intermediate lessons, and advanced lessons. These lessons can be reviewed over and over and used to support the hundreds of beginner, intermediate, and advanced recipes found in the recipe directory.

Exclusive Recipe Directory
OVER 1000 Soap & Cosmetic Designs & Recipes

The recipe directory in the Thermal Mermaid Soap Maker's Course includes not just hand made artisan soap. It includes, body wash, shampoo and conditioner, bath bombs, lip gloss, face masks, lotions, body butters, and just about anything you can think of to package and enjoy during any luxury spa session or home bath. Years ago we discovered that amazon books are wrought with fake recipes that make no sense. We decided to publish our recipes with notes and often video tutorials so that you really can make these at home. The recipes found in our directory are crafted by us, made by us, and in every case packaged and sold by us. No manipulated recipes that are made just to get you to buy our ingredients (we do not sell ingredients!), and no fake recipes! Everything in the directory is worked through first with artisan love, and then published for you to have.

Community Profile & Social Network for Soap & Cosmetic Artists

Your member's dashboard has interactive abilities along with all of the rich features. Not only can you access all of our tools, calculators, recipes, and tutorials, and publications, but you can interact with each other and show your work to the world. Integrated into your member's dashboard are groups and live activity feeds that allow you to connect specifically to those who are engaged in your hobbies. Wouldn't it be fun if your 'tweets' or 'facebook' posts were kept exclusively inside our artisan community? Yes! This is a great feature to discuss your ideas and maybe, not so successful experiments with only those who are working on the same thing you are!

Custom Professional Label & Bar Code Software

Get access to our exclusive label creator. If you use canva or another online label designer you might have discovered that you build your label and have to pay to download your design so that you can bring it to the publisher. You membership includes exclusive access to our label designer with over 1000 borders, images, and logos so you can customize and print your labels and cards for free.
