Awe naaaoohhhh - I hope you keep going. I'm sure you can achieve your vision!!Well… I just poured and plopped my soap balls space soap. I kinda want to call it space garbage… I used a lot of my soap scraps and practice embeds. Like I said this soap is gonna be extra! Even glittered and textured the top! But I’m thinking since the base is Activated Charcoal black/grey (for the first time I don’t think I used enough AC) I wonder if a halo will show? I have a feeling it’s gonna be ashy too!
It definitely did surprise me! It’s a pretty awesome soap. The base is not as dark as I’d hope but still works! I thought for a second I saw a halo but then remembered I covered the soap balls with purple mica. Can’t wait to clean the bars up! I’m happy with the results!
Yikes! Thank you. I only have a pound coming, and have been wanting to try it as a colorant. I guess I'll find out for myself soon enough.I see this bleeding always. So yes, it happens at high usage rates, but at low usage rates too. It's just in the nature of a soluble, mobile colourant (carotenoid dye) to diffuse through the oil/soap matrix. See how this M&P soap looks 18 days after making:

Note how the colour even migrated into the cling wrap.
