How to Mix Neons and Oil Soluble Colours




Speckling is a disappointing outcome when you have just completed your "perfect batch" of soap. 


Instructions for Use:

For Melt and Pour Soap - Unless using in large commercial sized batches we recommend you use the pre-dispersed Liquid Neons or Colour Blocks as it is much easier if you are a beginner or part time soaper.  We have tested this colourant in Melt and Pour Soap, and it can leave a speck or two.  For Melt and Pour Soap it is best mixed in Glycerine PF with thorough hand blending or using a mini mixer.

For Cold Process Soap - This colourant is best moistened with oil. We recommend starting out with the following:

Add 2 teaspoons of pigment to 25ml of a carrier oil like Sweet Almond Oil or Rice Bran Oil or Fractionated Coconut Oil - stir to moisten the powder and then mix well using a coffee frother (or mini mixer) – add 2 teaspoons of this mixture per 500g of traced soap for the mid tone shade in the graphic.
