I have a few oxides that i bought, and i hate mixing them with my soap. I just can't seem to get them to blend all the way no matter how i do it. Is there an easier way? Should i mix it with oil before soap? I just don't really know.

Also, i would really love some VIBRANT colors that are CP stable.. I think i saw a few on tkb trader or something, but i don't know anything about them so i'd rather have an idea before i buy more coloring! Hah.

Yep, mix the oxides with oil first! Well, either oil or water, I have some that are oil soluble and some that are water soluble. Mix into a couple TBS oil or water until there are no clumps and then mix that into a cup or two of soap after trace and then mix into the bigger portion.

I think the oxides are quite vibrant, my favorite is hydrated chrome green from Brambleberry,it's a lovely teal! There are also neon oxides out there which are crazy fun!
