The Brazilian Clay Sampler Includes about 1/5 ounce of each of the following:
I prefer natural colorants in my CP soaps, but CP makes natural colorants a bit...unpredictable. So I picked up this sampler to see how true these stay. While the colors muted (which I prefer, anyway), they stay true through the CP. Each packet is enough to color a small batch and was just perfect for my batches. The colors turned out lovely, and I was even able to mix the yellow and pink to get a pretty orange shade. If you're new to using clays, this a great way to try them out.
well i don't know what i did ,i have never ever made soap before ,i did a cold process from a book that i bought and i did the brazilian clay as i seen ann marie's videos and i will tell everyone i love the bright colors that I got so i will be ording more ,maybe it was beginners luck
Unfortunately mine did not end up so bright. I used the silicone mold, so I didn't want to put that in the oven, however I did wrap it in towels to try to gel the soap and get a more brilliant look. I wish I could upload a pic to share. I used the pink, purple, and yellow and it comes out looking very drab. (1.5tsp of clay for 1.5Tbsp of olive oil, mixed with about 13oz of soap batter).
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Beth! I'm sorry these brazilian clays did not produce the bright color you were looking for. Being natural colorants, they do have a more muted look. If you're looking for brighter colors I would recommend trying out our Pigments. I will email you personally to discuss this further.
the Pink clay is my favorite and I plan to buy more.
I have been doing a lot of hot process soap, finding the instant gratification to fit my personality a bit more than cold process. Especially during the learning phase. Anyway, these clays are amazing. They hold their color beautifully in HP and are so easy to work with. Not sure if it will work but here is a soap I made with red and pink clays. The bottom is cocoa powder as the colorant.
