Hey, sorry, i posted this in the other board, but then i decided that this one was probably more appropriate. How do you colour your melt and pour soap? Do you buy something special, or is there a homemade way? Thanks

You can color your soaps with soap dyes, pigments/micas, or natural ingredients. Depending on what you are looking for in the end product, you'll probably use all three as you get more 'into' it...

depending on the type of soap you're making (m&p I'm assuming?) it will work too. But you don't always get the color you expect if you are using other additives.
