With the three basic primary colours of Red, blue and yellow you can mix combinations to make purple, green and orange - these are known as secondary colours.
With combinations of secondary and primary colours you can mix another layer of colour - known as tertiary colours, such as lime green, brown and violet.
Our colour powders and liquid colours tend to be highly concentrated, so add a small amount at a time, or mix your colour with a small amount of base mixture first and then you can add the coloured mix to the major portion of your mixture.
So, if you have some melted soap base, pour a small amount into a jug and add colour a drop at a time until you have the colour you want. If you don't use all the coloured portion you can always let it set and reuse it in another batch at a later date.

Mixing & Using Your Colours
The colours included in your kit are appropriate for that product. It is important not to use the bath bomb, powder colours for soaps, bath melts or lip balms OR the liquid colours for anything other than soaps.
The colour wheel will help you to use your colours to achieve other colours on the spectrum. The basics are that if you have Red, Yellow and Blue you should be able to make most colours from those 3. We don't do a white but pastel shades can be achieved using a white product base such as Opaque soap base or bath bomb mixture.
Our liquid colours are suitable for colouring soaps and water based products, such as shower gels, shampoo and conditioners.
BATH BOMB COLOURS
Our bath bomb powder colours are pre-mixed with sodium to ensure an even distribution and economical use. This makes them only suitable for products that contain sodiums, such as bath bombs, truffles, muffins, bath fizzers etc. You can use them for making bath salts but use them sparingly.
