I used this color in the bulk goat's milk melt and pour and the color was a pretty medium yellow. I used the whole block in 1 lb. 5oz. of soap and layered it with white. The color came out creamy and even. I wish the color blocks were more concentrated, though. Had I known I was going to need the entire block for that amount of soap, I would have bought more so I wouldn't have to reorder so soon. You do say how much color block is needed for the results in the picture but you don't say how much each block weighs.
Reply from Bramble BerryHi Lynn! I'm glad you like this color! Each color block weighs about 4 grams. The picture above shows the color block in Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base. In white bases, these color blocks will give you a more pastel color. You can also add Fizzy Lemonade Colorant to your soap. To add that, mix 1/2 tsp. of colorant into 1 Tbsp. of liquid glycerin. Then, add the dispersed color to your melted soap base. You can read more in this Talk It Out Tuesday: Colorants post. I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this!
I made a few batches with this trying to use as little as possible to get yellow, but every time- in clear and in white bases- it kept coming out orange. I'm making the best of it and just using it as such :P If you have a recommendation on a good different yellow, I'm interested! (I make lego shaped soap so I really need a good yellow)

Hi Jamie! I'm sorry this product was not your favorite. We've found that it produces a bright yellow color, as seen in this Color Block Rainbow Soap Tutorial. I will be emailing you personally to help you troubleshoot.
I watched the video three times for the color blocks because I wanted to make sure I did it right, my color never fully dissolved and left a grainy, speckled mess in the soap definitely not what I was after. I think I will stick to gel colors

Hi Donna! I'm sorry to hear that this color block gave you some trouble. We have used this color block many times in our melt and pour projects, such as the Color Block Rainbow Soap Tutorial.
I will be emailing you personally to help trouble shoot why this may have happened. One possibility is that the color block was scorched. Melt and pour soap should not get hotter than 130-135 degrees, or it can burn. Please look out for my email!
