Hi Shivani, I am originally from India too. I have relocated in US after my marriage. The name Shivani did make me think of Indian but assumptions are not always good! I'm originally from Gujarat. I thank you for sharing this red color mystery. Thanks a lot!

Guys, do you think I can add a little food color to the mp soap? Has anyone tried it? I have heard that it can stain the skin.... Is that true?

Food coloring will usually bleed or run. The best colorants for M&P are micas.

Are you in the US? The reason I ask is because, I have tried using the regular red color that we get at Craft stored but that always turns pink :( ImageUploadedBySoap Making1386220532.110000.jpgonce, I thought of adding more drops and see what it turns out like and this is what I got!!!! :(.

Where do you buy Mica from? Any website suggestions? Or stores? Please advise

Khanjari,
That soap looks beautiful as it is even if the color isn't exactly what you wanted.
I recommend micas. Brambleberry ships worldwide and carries a nice selection of micas. Here's the link: http://www.brambleberry.com/Micas-C46.aspx
