There are many tips to choose from with this assortment. Don’t make the same mistake I made, and buy one at a time. Boo. I also don’t like wooden handles. I wash my brushes too much, which swells the wood and shrinks it and loosens the connections so I prefer plastic, less sophisticated brushes than oil and water color painters need.
Metal Hand Tools
I’ve used almost every one of these too. They are ideal to clean up soap after it has cured fully and is hard. I have not found a hand molded soap after examining it over and over, once its fully cured, that didn’t need a touch up.
Geometric Shape Cutter
These may seem small, however, if adding a top to a slice of soap, or even a bar, you’d be surprised at how small these figures need to be. I’ve successfully used many shapes, even those I thought I’d never use.
Canon EOS 7D
This Canon EOS 7D Mark II Digital SLR Camera (Body Only) might seem a little pricey for a beginner… Back in the day I bought a Canon 30d when they were about $800. I grew into it, work off all the sharp edges and grew out of it. That was about 11 years ago. Now I’m using a 60d (I sold my Canon 70-200 IS mm lens for it).
Choosing a camera for the first time, (or the umpteenth time) can be daunting. Unless you’re a professional, which then you’re far down the rabbit hole and know much more about camera’s than I do, the hair-splitting is not essential and the decision probably lands closer to your pocketbook. Here’s a quick comparison of the 7D and 70D:
- APS-C 337.5mm2
- 20.2 megapixels
- ISO 100 – 12,800
- APS-C 332.3mm2
- 18.0 megapixels
- ISO 100 – 6400
A Canon 60D will serve the same purpose, which is what I use. It is a bit older, (from its initial release date) completely viable and has outstanding video. This little Amazon package has useful lens that is a nice little go-to lens, especially for those just learning.
This little 50 mm lens is a fixed lens. It’s my first. I love it. I can’t believe I waited so long to pick one up. It creates a lovely bokeh look, which is a focused area and a blurred background/foreground. Its a nice lens for portraits and smaller products.
