THIS BLEND OF COLORS DOES NOT BLEED
If you are tired of bleeding red soap colors or mixtures, you've come to the right place. Our set is stable and will not bleed/ run/ migrate. It's perfect for the holidays and the color will stay where you put it! It is terribly heartbreaking to make a beautiful soap, only to realize within a few days, weeks or sometimes months, the red will bleed into the whites, causing your soaps to have a compromised look when you worked so hard to achieve the design you made. Mad Micas True Red will not bleed.
We have tested and tested combinations of a true red color in soap in countless batches of soap, and we have finally found the perfect combination for you.
Color Wheel RED can be attained in cold/hot process soap, and melt and pour soap easily by mixing these three colors in EQUAL PARTS before adding them in your soap mixture (read the tutorial here or see below).
Included in this set are three colors:
Brazen Hussy Neon Pigment is for soap only, so if you are purchasing this set and using these colors in a blend, the safety applications are regulated for SOAP ONLY.
Purchasing these as a set gives you a discount!
CP soap: Use 2 1/2 - 3 teaspoons per pound of oil.
MP soap: Use .75 - 1 teaspoon per pound of soap base.
Before beginning: MIX the reds. Take a mini whisk/spoon/craft stick and mix equal amounts of each of the three reds in your set together. While you stir, also grind the colors against the bottom and sides of your cup. Imagine a slightly gentler version of using a mortar and pestle. Do this until the colors are combined and look like a deep brick red color with hints of Brazen Hussy speckled in. Then add the liquid of your choice (details below).
FOR MP SOAP: choose one of the following techniques
Suggested usage rate for MP soap: Use 0.75-1 teaspoon per pound of soap base.
Technique ONE- Liquid glycerin: For each pound of soap use 1 TB of glycerin and the Mixed Reds. Combine the Mixed Reds and glycerin together with a spoon or baby whisk. Fold it over and around, making sure you blend in the powder from the sides and bottom of the cup.
Technique TWO- Rubbing alcohol: For each pound of soap, combine 2 TBS of alcohol with the Mixed Reds. Mix.
FOR CP SOAP
Suggested usage rate for CP soap: Use 2.5- 3 teaspoons per pound of oils in your soap batch.
Use 2 oz of one of your oils from your recipe and add the Mixed Reds. Stir them together. Do this step before you prepare your lye mixture or oils, as it gives the oils a chance to really soak in and dissolve the pigment so the colors will blend together seamlessly.
Will not bleed/migrate into other colors.
Note: Fragrance oils that are not clear can alter the final color.
You could not find a better red set to use for the red you need! We absolutely LOVE the red set for our soaps. Follow Nikki's instructions and you will achieve the beautiful red you see too. 💖
The blend doesn’t look red while you’re mixing it but the finished product it’s great. Don’t try to add any other variations. Follow the instructions.
Amazing true red. I live this set.
Love this! Hard to get a nice true red but this does the job perfectly!
Just the red I was looking for. I made cherries for my cupcake soaps.
