COLOUR­ING IN

NZ Gardener - Gifts from the Gardens - - Natural Gifts -

Want to add vi­brant colour to your soap? Mi­cas are a great op­tion for melt-and-pour soaps, while pig­ments work best with cold process soaps (ones that mix lye with oil). Nat­u­ral colourants that work well for glyc­er­ine soaps in­clude herbs, flower petals and coloured clays (like French red clay pow­der). Cos­metic-grade glit­ter can also be added. All are avail­able from on­line soap mak­ing sup­pli­ers.
