Mad Micas very popular non-bleeding red collection stays true and will not run or migrate.
If you are tired of bleeding red soap colours or mixtures, you've come to the right place. Our True Red Set is stable and will not bleed/ run/ migrate. It's perfect for the holidays and the colour will stay where you put it! This collection is invented for cold/Hot process and Melt & Pour soap. Add in equal parts before adding them to your soap.
Note: The True Red Set will produce a pink colour, not red, if used in white MP base or combined with titanium dioxide.
Important: Please refer to the True Red Set Instructions below before using.The True Red Set consists of three colours at a 15% discount over purchasing them individually:
Note that Brazen Hussy Neon Pigment is not FDA-approved for cosmetic use, so the True Red Set is suitable for use in SOAP & CRAFTS ONLY.
When blended as described below, they produce a rich, beautiful red in both clear MP and CP soaps.
This process is not difficult, and if you follow the directions, it will work out beautifully!
Before beginning, you must mix the reds. Take a mini whisk/spoon/craft stick and mix equal amounts of each of the three reds in your set together. While you stir, also grind the colours against the bottom and sides of your cup. Imagine a slightly gentler version of using a mortar and pestle.
Continue mixing until the colours are combined and look like a deep brick-red colour with hints of Brazen Hussy speckled in. Then add the liquid of your choice (details below).
When using in MP soap, you may choose one of the following techniques (remember the usage rates (above) are important, and higher than you might expect.):
Technique One: Blend with liquid glycerin. For each pound of soap, combine 1 tablespoon of glycerin with the mixed reds using a spoon or baby whisk. Fold it over and around, making sure you blend in the powder from the sides and bottom of the cup.
Technique Two: Blend with rubbing alcohol (RA): For each pound of soap, combine 2 tablespoons of RA with the mixed reds. Blend as above.
Before preparing your lye mixture or oil blends, combine some of one of the oils from your recipe with the mixed reds. Double-check the usage rates, above (they're important, and they're probably higher than you think) Use just enough to make the mixture fluid, but not overly diluted. Stir them together. Doing so before preparing your lye allows the oils a chance to really soak in and dissolve, so the colours will blend together seamlessly.
Before adding the colour/oil blend mixture to your batter, give it a final stir.
