I have the sample pack of pop colors and would like to know how to get a deep red? I would start mixing but I don't want to waste them. TIA

I have not gotten a deep red from the POPs, but maybe if you add a touch of black? I have the red #30 but not used it yet.

pop colors

aren't they just gorgeous colors! just ordered the pop sampler ystday. i also ordered the black cherry which i'm going to try with mulberry f/o.

do you have any idea how much to use per pound of soap, or do you just eye-ball it?

The pop colors rocks in soap, I've been doing lip balms in them lately. Next will be makeup :) I love her other mica's too.

I have a question about these pop colors. Do they make colored lather and do they stain soap dishes and bath tubs? I have mostly just used clays and oxides so far but these colors sound really lovely.

I wonder if you could get the soap max trace, use gloves, and assemble like a fondant rose. http://www.sugarcraft.com/catalog/misc/ ... ntrose.htm Of course, you have to stop gel or it would blob out. Or try it after HP? That would be an interesting project to test.

I am sure the pics are of M&P.
