List the colors you have, very specifically. People have talked about the combinations they've used to get different reds but it's easier if we are talking about specifics. It should be possible to get a good red in M&P.

It would be helpful to exactly what colors and amounts you have already tried so we won't suggest it again. If you're looking at micas from Nurture Soap, I would recommend the Firecracker red for a true red in MP.

I like pouring two different colors at the same time into a bar shape mold and see what happens. Usually very pretty.

Just watch videos for various techniques.

My customers love the embeds I do in clear soap. Ex. Toy cars, paw patrol doggies, etc. I like making soaps for kids

The only reds I have found do not turn pink are the blocks from Brambleberry, or just red mica. The liquid one will not work!
