Has anyone tried to blend your colorants together before adding them to your soaps? I want to know if I can do that with indigo and rose kaolin (when they arrive).

I do it all of the time. I love using natural colorants - spinach powder, turmeric, etc but they always fade with time. Now I add oxides and non-sparkly micas to my "spa" bars.

I totally blend when I don't have a shade I want. I bet those together will be gorgeous!

I always do. :)
I mix different colours to get those I can't buy.
I really like teal/aqua colours and they are hard to find or hard to make work in CP.
I add TD to micas to get pastel look, or white clay.
AC to darken the colour etc.

I use primarily micas and blend all the time. I've blended oxides as well.

I too like blending colors when I need something that I don't have.
