Coral Cold Process Soap Test 3

Coral. What can you say about coral? I wasn’t expecting a color change (and I didn’t get one), but I didn’t expect to fall in love with the color either. It made a bright sassy orange that I am just dying to swirl with. This is a soap with some spunk. This soap tells me “Go girl, you can do anything!” I feel on top of the world. Want to come join me? Come to the kitchen with me to make this inspiring soap.

    I think I will use the coral color for my next batch of Kalahari Melon, either as a swirl or full color. What is Q.S. when used for measurement of the color?

    Q.S. stands for quantity sufficient. We use this term because some people want more or less color than others. I used about 1/8 teaspoon of coral in this soap.
    I hope this helps.

    Beautiful, yet another reason to purchase your colors. I should receive my 1st package from y’all tomorrow 30 Nov 12 and I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am. This is my 1st order from any soap supply company. I have been soaping for 6 mths using what I could buy locally and using plant based colors.
    Have I said I Love this blog? Well I do!
