Usage Notes: Dyes may appear drab or look like the wrong color before being bloomed, and must be bloomed before being incorporated into your medium (see our blooming instructions, below). Please don't panic without testing a small portion in water!

A little goes a LONG WAY; please keep this in mind when using. Use latex or nitrile gloves and protect the surfaces you are working on, as these colors are extremely concentrated and will stain clothes, counter tops and hands.

  • Soap Usage: Stable in soap, but may bleed. Ideal for liquid soap: Simply blend the dye in water before adding to your liquid soap recipe.
  • Bath Bomb Usage: Dyes are water soluble and thus Polysorbate 80 is NOT necessary in your recipe. Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) is alkaline and can change some colors to an unexpected color. If this happens, add a half part citric acid to your baking soda. This should balance the pH levels and give you an accurate color. Note that you can add bloomed dye to baking soda first so that you do not activate your citric acid, but we highly recommend following your bath bomb instructions for use.

How to bloom a dye: Take a small amount of dye and add enough water to dissolve the dye powder. Stir or swirl to assist dissolving. You can also add dye powder to a medium and use a spray bottle to spray water onto powder to bring out the brilliant dye color.

So when bloomed water method it produces almost a neon orange color but when it dries is a very sandy orange color. Makes it hard to have vibrant colors because they seem to only stay vibrant when wet then fade to almost pastel color

You may not be using enough. Try adding more to see if it pops the color! :)
Easy on the eyes

Well written and easy to understand. Great information on how to get the true colors we want, the easy way, and fix the errors, the easy way too! Greatly appreciated especially as it extends our options, reduces our restrictions, and eliminates resource wasting practices. Gotta love it! Thanks MadMicas!
