Carving a soap ducky
Soap carving is often used as a precursor to carving wood—notably by the Boy Scouts of America, for whom it is a long-established tradition. Soap isn’t really
all that similar to wood, but it is cheap and readily available, and it offers a good way to introduce you
to handling knives and making some basic cuts. Use
a short-blade kitchen knife—the one you’d normally use for cutting vegetables is fine (but the blade should not be serrated).
Use straight pins with ball ends for the eyes—but if you use your completed soap ducky in the bathtub, remember to first take out the pins!
