I wanted the color to be more vibrant. So any suggestions for me? the red came out more of a  pinkish-orange lol. I'm going to try again today I hope.

I had a pinky orange result when I used strawberry.
I think that's just what happens when using the kool-aid reds, but I hope I'm wrong

from my experience with kool aid cherry works way better for pinks and reds than strawberry.

Ok this was my first try. The pale purple looked more brown than it does in the picture and the red was more orange.



Then I threw them both in again and they turned out more like this:


Grape

Strawberry

Then I tried these too Smiley

Lemon-Lime

Blue Rasberry Lemonade

and Pink Lemonade....which I am half tempted to throw back in for a second try but that would require a trip to the store lol.

Thank you all so much for your helpful advice and links:) I'll be felting soap tomorrow afternoon and I will post those when I'm done Smiley

Such lovely colors, you did beautifully! My favourite to use is the lemon-lime

I only wish that kool-aid was sold in Australia

Jane Doe - I feel so sad that I want to send you some kool-aide now lol I checked and it would only cost like $3 to send you a handful Wink

Thanks for the compliments Smiley I'm going to get started on my soap here soon. I will be using the plastic bag method that GraceO posted.

Fun fact - I'm allergic to kool-aide  Shocked

i just had a thought for a cute valentine's NF, how about a love bug? beginners could make the ladybug and more advanced can whip up their own funky bug!
