Color for Your SoapIf you want to add color to your soap, now is the time.
If you want the soap to all be one unified color, add the colorant to the pot and stir. If you want to achieve more of a swirl effect:
- Ladle about 1/2 to 1 cup of the soap mixture into a measuring cup.
- Add the colorant to that bit of soap.
- Holding the measuring cup several inches above the pot, slowly pour the colored soap into one corner of your soap pot.
- Then, using a rubber spatula, swirl the colored soap through the pot. Don't stir too much or you'll end up just blending the color in with the entire batch.
Color is one of those variations where soap making becomes truly an art - and where you can really create your own custom homemade soaps.
