Description

The True Red Trio is a great place to start for making your own red blends. There are several different ways to make a true red in cold process soap. The general rule of thumb is to start with a very bright pink base or a reddish orange one. Using a pink base will create a bright pink-based red. Using a reddish orange base will create a bright orange-based red.

Here are the best colors to use to make your own red:

Neon Red bleeds and migrates, so be aware of this if you are creating your own red blend. We tested red blends made with Red-Orange Neon and Deep Orange Neon. We prefer Red-Orange as it creates a red that is a touch brighter and true.

Add any of these colors in equal parts and mix, mix, mix! We prefer using our Mica Mixer to ensure all colors are completely dispersed. This will help prevent streaks or speckling in your soap.

We encourage you to try different blends and see which one works best for you!

A little hard to use

Even when it said it was equal parts, i couldnt get the real red i was looking for! Tried mixing by grams and by spoons, but still didnt get the trial by fire red!

Cold process soap

I actually combined all 3 together. Not in equal parts and came out with such a beautiful red. I bought a second one too so equal parts to see if I can make a true red.

Not sure

Maybe I dont know how to blend properly but i didn't get the color i was expecting and hoping for.

There really is no right or wrong way to mix these, you can really mix them in whichever ratios you would like to get the color you want. I will send you a private message to see if I can help you achieve the color you're going for!

Real Red!

I bought this by accident, but was pleasantly surprised with it. I mixed equal parts and got a beautiful red. I adjusted slightly to get the color I wanted! I would prefer a premixed version but I would recommend this if you want to adjust the color.
