Just want to know how to use it?
I need to find something for my cp that will stay red and not turn pink. How do you use this? Do you mix it with a red mica or use it alone? I wasn't sure and wanted to ask before I purchase. I am new to soaping and I don't want to do it wrong.

Hi Kim! This is a great question, it can be tricky to achieve a true, vibrant red in cold process. We have found 1 part Merlot Sparkle Mica to 2 parts Electric Bubblegum Pigment results in a beautiful, rich red. You can see an example of this color in our CPOP Swirls Hot Process Tutorial.

Bleeding red soap dye
I've recently made some shea butter soaps with Red imbeds and its clear that the soap turns the white facecloth red and the lather is red also. Is this normal when using deep colors in M & P soaps? I'm embarassed to sell them due to this occurence, although they really are pretty! Any advise would be appreciated. Thx! Valerie

Hi Valerie! If too much colorant is used in your soap, you’re correct, you may end up with a colored lather or even stained washcloths. We recommend starting at ½ tsp of colorant per pound of soap and working up from there. If you are using a white base, your soap will end up being more of a pink color. Instead, I recommend using a clear base to achieve a truer red.

Brilliant Color
This works so very well! I also bought the yellow and blue so I could mix colors to my liking. There is no clumping, bleeding color or anything else. As far as I can tell, it doesn't even effect the smell. Since trying these, I find I prefer the liquid non-bleeding colors to the powdered ones (except the mica. For some reason, those do splendidly for me).
