When it comes to making your soaps look professional, you have several options. They range from sophisticated to simple, & while none of them are more right than others, you have to find the one that works for you!
The Nova Studio while you're taking classes here for $4 (we carry this exact one). Technically, it's not even a soap beveler - it's a cheese slicer! How much soap the bevel takes up is completely up to you & how hard you press while beveling. Using this would make beveling one of those activities you can do while watching TV.
This one is called the HANDcraft soap edger, and it's available through Soap Equipment. It's pricer than the cheese slicer above at $27.50, but creates rounder corners, while still allowing you to move your task wherever you want to be. The depth of the bevel is decided by which of the two ends you use - one is smaller & one is deeper. For 5% off, click through THIS link and use code NovaStudio at checkout. This is the beveler Lori uses for her soaps. Please note that the links above are affiliate links.
Finally, the Mission Peak Soap beveler is the most sophisticated of the options. It has a ledge that keeps it attached via tension to the edge of the table so you can push your bars through without it sliding away from you. The wire system creates a very professional, 45 degree bevel. There is no way to adjust the depth of the bevel (unless you want it deeper - then remove the plastic on the bottom that helps the bars slide) but you will have perfect, even bevels every time, with no errors. This is one of David's products & we love everything he does! For a discount on your order, check the back page of your handouts!
