Default Natural Colours

Turmeric, Paprika and Charcoal. First time trying oil infused spices. Happy with the colours!

Very pretty colors. It looks like you got a pink from the paprika on my monitor, and I really like it.

Impressive!

Note to Mod/Mins: Could we please have a special section for "Natural Colorants". I'm revisiting the subject and I think a few others are working with natural colorants too.

Very pretty soaps. I hope the colors last for you, I haven't had much luck - they either fade completely or turn various shades of beige, brown.

Thank you....it was for a FB group challenge. Personally wouldn't bother again but I like to experiment and try these different techniques, otherwise you never learn. Easier to use micas Good to know the colours don't last....I will keep for personal use

Lovely soap. Unfortunately, I never had much luck with the lasting either. Great to play with them sometimes though.
