Can all the colors in this palette all be made in cp soap using "natural" colorants?
From top to bottom, this is what I think I can use, with blanks that hopefully some of you can fill in for me:
1. Some kind of clay?
2. Some kind of clay?
3. Cocoa powder?
4. ?
5. Indigo powder
6. Spirulina powder

Coffee for number three.
Spirulina will be number 1 (fawn) after 3 weeks no matter how you use it :(
Pumpkin is good. With paprika it will be a little darker and with carot it will be a little darker still. I substituted 1/2 pumpkin purée for the water and it was a bit darker more yellow than two.
Adding honey will get you to two.

I think you could get pretty close on the 3rd one with madder root -- maybe mixed with a little Moroccan red clay.
