Kymber Posted July 29, 2006 Share Posted July 29, 2006 Ok.......I made my first attempt at swirled soap tonight. I had to stop at Hobby Lobby quick on my way home and they had all their soaping stuff (very limited selections) on sale so I grabbed some liquid dyes. Now I know they aren't of the highest quality nor are they super concentrated but after my color chunks last weekend turning to chunks in my soap I decided OK I'll try this liquid till I get something decent and easy to use ordered. Well I made soap using a lard recipe......scented it with Cool Water and took a bit out for swirls. I added blue, then more blue, then a bunch more and I got to a pale purple color...so added a bunch more and got to a grayish blue.....added more (you get the picture) and finally decided it was setting up too fast and I better get to swirling. Got it in the soap and the colored soap turned PINK?? What in the world?? It is gelling right now but still looks pretty pink....and no blue.
