    I'm looking to make some M and P red embeds for Valentine's day. Any strong opinions from you all on a true red?

    I like tomato red from TDK glycerin based. Is non bleeding and leaves no specs. :)

    I use neon pink, with a touch of red oxide in clear M&P (and CP too) and get a true Christmas Red every time.

    sounds good to me as well. I used a bleeding colorant in another melt and pour and it was a nice look.I'll do a small loaf and see if the public agrees.

    If you use red oxide be careful, because in my experience it bleeds in MP.
