What would be the best bar of soap to use if I was going to make a soap carving? Answered

I want to make a soap carving of a heart for my wife but don't know what matterials I need. What type of bar soap is best? What other tools do I need?



I would go with the Ivory Soap myself.

Ivory is soft, so it sorta carves, sorta sculpts. Irish spring is harder. A knife works well, a sharpened popsicle stick works in a scraping motion. If (when) you break off too big a piece, you can 'glue' it back on with some water, but it's a weak joint.
