Ultramarines and Oxides (pigments) are recommended in oil-based applications.
M&P Soap: We recommend a usage rate of about 1/10 - 1/8 teaspoon per pound of M&P soap. When mixing with M&P soap, blend in a few drops of glycerin or oil to make a smooth paste to avoid clumps in your soap. Pigments will appear bold and true to color in clear M&P soaps and will be somewhat muted (pastel-like) in white M&P due to the titanium dioxide whitener.
CP Soap: Usage rates vary but typical suggested usage in CP soap is 1/2 - 1 teaspoon per pound of soap. Over saturation will result in colored lather and will leave colored suds on fabric and may stain. Pigments are best for swirling as the colors do not “bleed” into one another and do not “migrate” or spread.
Non-Bleeding, Non-Migrating. Stable in high pH
I used about 1/2 a tsp for my green layer in a soap and it stayed true to color and looks fantastic!
Wow, that Chromium Oxide Green gave great results! I made a micro-batch of 1 lb. of soap, and put exactly one drop of the green that I had mixed with oil into the batch, and it came out a very nice, "bright sage". I think 2-3 drops would have given a nice medium Kelly green. Also loved the Pow! Pow! Purple. Will be buying from Mad Micas again, and again, and again.
Love the color and the green is very deep and rich. If your looking for a transparent green, this is not the one for you. I used it to make leafs on an epoxy project and it turned out great.
So far I’ve only used this in melt and pour soap for embeds. It came out as a very rich, dark green. Exactly what I was hoping for. Very little went a long way. I can’t wait to try it in CP soap.
