Hello everyone!
Just wondering whats the best method to use when mixing micas and oxides...Is it better to mix them in with some glycerin or with some melted mp base?

You can do it either way, but don't add to much glycerin. It will make it sticky.

You can also mix the colorants with your fragrance oils then put that into your soap. I like doing this because it does not require any extra ingredients but works just as well. :D

Thank you!
I will test a bit and see how it works- mixing it with the fo seems easy to do.. Is glycerin available at he drug store?
Thanks for the link Armygrl!

Well, I don't know what I did..I had the urge to play with colors and all I had were these liquid soap dyes I got at Micheals about three years ago-so I got a piece of left over soap (unused) and remelted it dropped a couple of drops of color and it turned into a gooey mess! Ay! Does anybody know what happened?

Jessica :oops:

Are you sure they are Soap Dyes and not for Candles?
Not knowing the age or condition of the soap you melted, it's hard to say what happened. The soap could have melted at too high a temp. or the ingredients may just be too old. It's really just a guess. Sorry I can't help more.

PS. I have found Glycerine at WalMart and at a local Drug Store - however, I have never needed or wanted to add it to anything.

Huh, I don't know what to tell you either. :roll:

How old was your base and was it wrapped during storage? Was it mushy even before you used it? How about your soap dyes, did you shake the bottle well before using it? It might be that all the liquid (glycerin) rose to the top of the bottle and the colorant settled at the bottom so that you ended up with glycerin in your soap.

I've never found any liquid glycerin at the local drug stores around here, haven't checked WalMart though. The only glycerin I've seen at 3 different drug stores is the suppository kind. Sorry! :lol:

Some places carry glycerin behind the pharmacy counter. You might need to ask the pharmacist.

Do the micas or oxides bleed in MP?
