Liquid Cherry Colorant - This is a very concentrated brilliant cherry colorant. It is bright and almost neon pink in White Melt & Pour and in Cold Process soap. In Clear Melt & Pour, a nice pink/red results. Another gorgeous option for red.
Tip: Occassionally we get speckles in our Melt & Pour soap with this color. To prevent this we mix a little rubbing alcohol with the colorant to help dissolve any little dye specks before mixing it into the soap base. This color may bleed or migrate in soap, so plan your design accordingly. The more color is used, the more it can bleed.
Note: This product can be difficult to incorporate into cold process soap and speckling may result.

Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Tonya! I'm sorry this colorant wasn't your favorite. In our tests and recipes, we've found the colorant stays, as seen in this Rainbow Spheres Melt and Pour Soap Tutorial. However, this color can fade if it's left in direct sunlight. I'll be emailing you personally to help out!
Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Alison! I'm sorry this colorant wasn't your favorite. In our initial tests we found the Liquid Cherry did not bleed. Though, now that it's been a longer period of time our test soaps have started to bleed. We also found that the colorant will bleed in higher concentrations. I'll be emailing you personally to resolve this issue!

Hi Mary! I'm sorry this color wasn't your favorite. It creates a beautiful red pink in Clear Melt and Pour, as seen in this Goodness Gracious, Great Balls of Freedom Tutorial. If you'd like a darker red, you may want to add a little bit of Burgundy Pigment to your color mixture. I'll be emailing you personally to resolve this issue!
