From what I have read here and on several of the blogs I am suppose to pre-mix my mica or pigment colors with a light oil before I add it to the soap batch, which is after I get trace. So my question is if I am mixing 1/2 tsp. of color to 1 tble. of sweet almond oil, do I account for that almond oil in my soapcalc recipe? Do I include 1 to 2 ounces of almond oil in the recipe and then divide that ounce between the colors ... or do I ignore that ounce of almond oil when running my base oils through soapcalc ? Thank you for any experience or guidance you can offer!!!
